Five Out Offense: Getting to know some of the new Mavericks

Chandler Parsons stirs up some controversy, Dirk baseball redux, and more Al-Farouq Aminu than you thought you ever wanted.

Andrew Richardson-USA TODAY Spor

1. CHANDLER PARSONS SPEAKS. Parsons talked yesterday with Jay Mohr Sports in what became the interview heard 'round the web, addressing former teammate James Harden's comments and creating a little bit of controversy himself.

Listen for the comments about Harden, but stick around for the discussion about the Buffalo Jeans photo shoot. (Seriously.)

2. GRADING THE MAVS' NEWEST ADDITIONS. Rob Mahoney over at Sports Illustrated talks about the Mavericks excelling in this later part of free agency, and looks at the fit of newest additions of Al-Farouq Aminu and Jameer Nelson. He also hands out some grades.

3. LOOKING AT AL-FAROUQ AMINU. At Upside Motor, Sam Vecinie breaks down Al-Farouq Aminu's skill set. He talks about why Aminu may not have reached his peak yet -- and how he may have found a perfect fit playing alongside Dirk with the Mavs.

4. BEHIND THE SCENES OF DIRK PLAYING BASEBALL. We covered Dirk's Heroes Celebrity Game last month pretty extensively, but some video has since emerged and boy is it fun. Friend of the site Jason Gallagher breaks down Dirk Playing Baseball in hilariously gif-able fashion.

5. SO RICHARD JEFFERSON SEEMS FUN. Sarah Kogod has a fun story about a hotel prank involving Jefferson and Brandon Rush. Seems like Jefferson will fit right in with Dirk et al. in the locker room this coming season.
