DALLAS (AP) – New Dallas Mavericks Lamar Odom and Vince Carter say they are looking forward to helping Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd defend the NBA championship.

Odom has some experience in doing just that, having won the two previous championships with the Lakers.
Carter is an accomplished veteran whose career resume is missing only a title. His hunger could be as much as of a spark as Odom’s know-how.

Coach Rick Carlisle has yet to put the newcomers through a practice, so he said Tuesday it is too soon to talk about the lineup.

But he’s thrilled to have Odom, Carter and more additions on the way – backup point guard Delonte West and swingman Rudy Fernandez, who has cleared up visa problems and is finally headed to Dallas.
