Free Agency Roundup Or How The Black Thursday Turned Into A Crazy Thursday

New, comments

A completely insane day of free agency comes to an end we keep you up-to-date with all the Mavs-related stuff you need.

Brett Perryman of SBNation Dallas noted that DFW could remember December 8th, 2011 as the Black Thursday for sports fans in the area. The Rangers lost C.J Wilson to the L.A. Angels and Maverick fans learned that Mark Cubans plan to preserve cap room for the future was no joke. Several members of the championship roster signed contracts or are close to signing contracts:

What Brett Perryman couldn't know was, that December 8th, 2011 won't go down as the Black Thursday for sports fans in DFW, but as the day where "Basketball reasons" prevented the trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Lakers. And that is indeed kind of good news for the Mavericks, because they hope to land a major free agent next summer and with Paul heading to L.A. he would have been off the market. No matter how that drama will continue to unfold, the Black Thursday turned into a Crazy Thursday faster than you could say "Basketball reasons."
