The NBA is expanding the All-Star ballot to include all players, and pushing back the start of voting so fans can better consider their choices.
With the Dallas Mavericks kicking off the 2014-15 NBA regular season, the crew of the Ben & Skin Show debut their Mavs Anthems! Listen and vote for the one you think is the best:
The Dallas Mavericks enter 2014-15 with championship aspirations of their own after a couple big moves this summer.
Dirk Nowitzki was a little gimpy as he worked his way through Saturday’s Fan Jam scrimmage and now we know why: He sustained what the Mavs are calling a hip contusion, an injury coach Rick Carlisle terms ‘not serious’
The Mavs announced Tuesday the signing of free agent forward Charlie Villanueva, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Dallas Mavericks unveiled the first ever ‘crowd sourced’ uniform on Tuesday.
Dallas could use Nelson as part of a rotation at the point, but as much as the Mavs like Harris off the bench, Nelson could end up as a starter should he choose to sign in Dallas.
Teams and players could negotiate and agree to deals since July 1, but contracts couldn’t be signed or trades made until Thursday, after the moratorium period ended and next season’s salary cap was set.
The NBA has set the 2014-15 salary cap at $63.1 million, an all-time high, paving the way for contracts to be signed.
The Dallas Mavericks are working on sealing a deal with Devin Harris, with the likelihood being that he gets the sort of deal (three years and $9 million) that was on the table for him in Dallas before the toe injury was revealed.
The last time LeBron was on the market, the Mavs politely downplayed their interest because they lacked cap space and could only pull up a chair to the poker table at the invitation of the Cavs.
The Mavs pulled some ‘misdirection’ before Wednesday’s Carmelo Anthony recruiting session but, once all were gathered, were nothing but ‘direct’ with their free-agent target.
