Mark Cuban said multiple players told him they wanted to be traded if Avery Johnson returned as coach this season.




Cuban said the players did not speak in generalities. They told him they didn't want to come back if Johnson was still the coach.

When asked if more than five players requested a trade, Cuban said yes. More than seven?

"Close," Cuban said.

More than 5 but not more than 7....so either 6 or 7 asked to be traded--half the team! I wonder who.

He was a real coach, that's why they wanted him gone.
