Nico Harrison Rumors
The Mavericks will be given an opportunity to present an offer sweet enough to entice the four-year veteran into re-signing. Owner Mark Cuban, general manager Nico Harrison, head coach Jason Kidd and potentially a few players are expected to attend the meeting, sources said. Dallas was initially hoping to come to terms on a five-year, $106 million deal, but that offer would not get it done, sources said.
Marc Stein: Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is scheduled to be joined by top team executives Nico Harrison and Michael Finley, Coach Jason Kidd and, as @ChrisBHaynes reports, maybe one or two of Jalen Brunson’s teammates at Thursday’s free-agent meeting in NYC with Brunson, league sources say.
Tim MacMahon: Mavs GM Nico Harrison said it was “expected” that the Knicks, who are known to have strong interest in Jalen Brunson, would make moves to create cap space tonight. On hopes of re-signing Brunson: “Until he tells us that he doesn’t want to be here, we’re optimistic.”
Tim MacMahon: Christian Wood is entering a contract year. Asked if he’s a long-term fit with Mavs, GM Nico Harrison said, “I think we both offer each other a lot. We’ll have to do a little bit of showing him, and he’ll have to do a little bit of showing us.”
