Game Thread: Jazz (31-26) at Mavericks (40-16)

New, comments

WHO: The Dallas Mavericks host the Utah Jazz

WHAT: If you don't know, clearly you've been ignoring the internet. Deron is GONE.

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

WHEN: 7:30pm CT

HOW: League Pass | FSSW-DAL | FSR-UT | KESN | KFNZ

THE STORY: That's right, you heard correctly. Deron Williams was traded to the New Jersey Nets, and poor coach Corbin can't seem to catch a break. The Mavericks have the opportunity to walk away with a win here if they don't get lulled into a false sense of security. They haven't played in a week, and all the media hype could throw off both teams' games. The plus side? We'll get to see Devin Harris again. Miss ya, buddy. Links after the jump, and be kind to the guys at SLC Dunk. They're probably reeling right now.

Players hope Mavs stand pat - Dallas Mavericks Blog - ESPN Dallas
The trade rumor mill has been pretty quiet around these parts this week, at least by Mark Cuban-era Mavericks standards. The only rumor that really gained any traction was the Mavs sniffing around to try to steal in a salary dump. That obviously isn't going to happen with Harris headed to Utah as part of the package to deliver Deron Williams to New Jersey.
