NEW YORK (AP) - The Mavericks are getting their White House trip, though Mark Cuban and the NBA disagree on how it was arranged.

And Cuban insists the league still messed up by not giving the champions a game in Washington.

He reiterated Tuesday that scheduling a Mavericks game in Washington should have been more of a priority, given the compressed schedule and how few off days would be available for the traditional trip to meet the president.

Regardless, the Mavs are heading to Washington next week, which the NBA says it helped coordinate once it learned President Barack Obama would be available. Cuban, however, says in an email that the team “took the lead” and included the league in its plans.
