Finally, something relevant to your specific Maverick-based interests. Marc Stein reports
It all goes back to Josh Smith. All of this trade deadline stuff does. Everything else reported is peanuts and mostly to keep everyone entertained. As I've thought about it, I like the deal. Granted, I'd rather they give up Chris Kaman, but Rodrigue Beaubois and Dantay Jones aren't seeing consistent time with the Mavericks at the moment and both have expiring deals. It works.
Rick Carlisle has moved away from Roddy as a consistent option and Beno Udrih would give him a veteran that is much, much, much better than Mike James.
Finally, this tweet really hurts, but man is it true.
