The Mavs blew up their championship roster with the hope of retooling with Deron Williams but now that their 6th man bolted and Deron didn't go there......Reports say Shark Tank is doing well.

What should the Mavs do now?

I'd guess:
Plan A) Hope that Dwight is still a free agent next offseason and sign him.
Plan B) Enjoy being old for a couple years, have some fun, acquire some assets, then in the bumper 2014 FA have all the cap room in the world and an enticing owner.

I think they'll probably sign Dragic and some other second tier guys, though. Could put together a decent team.

RLundi
07-03-2012, 07:37 PM
They should sign Nash for 2 or 3 years, retool a little, make one last run at another ring like the Celtics and then completely restart with loads of cap space once Dirk and Nash retire.

All the mavs fans guaranteed they would get deron or dwight too :laugh:.

I would be pissed if I were a mavs fan right now because cuban gave up a chance to defend the franchise's 1st title just to acquire 1 of those two in free agency.

Letting chandler, butler, stevenson, barea and now terry was a ****in mistake. Thank god i hate Cuban.

Nah. Those guys weren't worth their price tags long-term. Chandler might POSSIBLY have been, but that's more than arguable. I liked the move then, and missing out on Deron sucks, but I don't exercise revisionist history. Cap space + crafty management= opportunity, both this year, and more importantly, in coming years

If Deron Williams was so dominant - the Nets would have made the playoffs last year. At the PG position - he's overrated in my opinion. He's really good - but he's not a upper echelon superstar by no means.

The Mavs still have a ton of money to spend. They will be fine.

the Mavericks didn't blow up a championship roster so they could sign a player Deron Williams.

they didn't give Tyson Chandler a huge deal because it would cripple them financially after Dirk retired, and they didn't want to pay a backup PG as much as Barea wanted when they could get someone like Delonte West for the minimum salary.

they have a lot of young players and the FA is long from over.. not to mention the season hasn't even started.

Worst idea. It proven that dallas is way too unatractive for free agents to sign. Once Dirks is gone or playing much worser, this ship is sunk. So better get the best that you can now. You cna add and change more later but first of all you need a base to settle around others. You've got to make that franchise "attractive" once again, and we're far away from being that. we're screwed for the second year but okay.

Fair enough. But that's really it...


They went all in on shedding salary...and it wasn't the wrong move. They won their championship, and the window probably closed right away. So they acted accordingly.

I won't call them "losers" right now...because they haven't lost. They made the right moves IMO... regardless of whether or not they got Deron

not when the contract ends at age 34 and the team he is anchoring is a stone's throw away from rebuild mode. Not to mention, athleticism is a big part of his game, and the most expensive portions of the contract would have been paid while he was on the wrong side of 30, which is more off-putting than it would be for most guys considering how long he's been in the league, combined with his injury history.

They lost out on D-Will and Steve Nash. They lost Jason Terry. Dirk and Marion are both 34. Jason Kidd's like 100 years old. What do you think is the next move for them? Should they purse Allen or should they save their cap space and hope CP3 or D12 opts out and signs with them? The one thing they have going for them is that they have an owner that dosnt mind spending so hopefully they can put a good team on the court.

This season is a wash for this team. DO NOT WASTE THE CAP SPACE ON $#!TTY PLAYERS!!! DO NOT SPEND MONEY JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE IT!!! Joe Dumars made that mistake with Charlie-V and Ben Gordon and he's still paying for it. Hold the cap space, such up a bad season, get a high draft pick, and hopefully add CP3 and DH12. That said, that is not going to happen. CP3 is going to stay in Clipperland and DH12 will be traded and sign an extension.

Mavs are going to have to start building through the draft... and they did not have a very good start this season.

That would be ideal, but it doesn't work that way. Dirk is the centerpiece that brought the Mavs their lone title. Being unable to surround Dirk with pieces this season is unacceptable but trading him because of it takes it to a whole new level.

Suns signed Dragic last night for 4 years/$34M.

As PG's go, there's Lowry, Lin, Felton, Sessions and Kidd.

The options for the Mavs are limited. Waste a year of an aging Dirk and *hope* you can get another serious play maker the next year (we see how that worked out with Nash/Deron), or spend the money and make the best of it.

I suspect Cuban will make a move.

Guys like Dirk don't come along every day. You gotta make the best of them while they can, since you don't know when you'll get another like him.

I'm not going to feel bad for the Mavs. They won a title. They should have no regrets for the situation they are in. They can start a rebuild in a couple of years when Dirk comes off the books.

NYSpirit1
07-05-2012, 05:17 PM
It's looking like that should be the avenue or at least Cuban is making it appear that way.

Out of the key players on the 2010-11 Mavs team:

Dirk
Jason Terry
Tyson Chandler
Jason Kidd
Stevenson
Marion
Barea
Stojakovic
Corey Brewer

Out of all those players, only Dirk and Marion remain. The only other two notable players on their roster right now are Haywood and Beaubois.

As dumb as it sounds on the surface, if the Mavs are going to let everyone go and not build around Dirk again, they may as well trade him before his career is over and get a new, young piece to rebuild around.

When your team is looking at Randy Foye as a PG it is time to waive the white flag.

yeah i think its time. dirk probably doesn't want to waste a 2nd year in a row of what few he has left. i don't see them getting howard or cp3 next year in free agency like i've seen suggested yesterday. they need to let dirk go somewhere he can compete and start to rebuild with whatever assets they can get back for him imo.

Seriously? Dirks not going anywhere. His legacy is cemented and he has a championship. He's not Lebron or any of today' players that have to "team up" and jump on a contender. Dirks been there done that, and already stated that he doesn't want to go anywhere else. People should just stop saying that already. The Mavs are rebuilding and they aren't a contender we get it, but theres a thing called Loyalty man. 99% of todays NBA players don't get it, but Dirk does. That's part of what makes him so special.

Dirk for Tyrus!

Honestly though, I think they'll see what they can do next season, and who that can sign in free agency next year. I that doesn't come together, they would be wise to get what they can for Dirk.

I doubt they trade Dirk. But if they Do, it would probably be to LA for Bynum or something to go play with Nash. Or the Clippers to go play off of Paul and Griffin.

Cuban seems like a brilliant guy and the smart play is to rebuild. I think he has build enough cache with the fan base to understand it makes sense to trade Dirk a year too soon rather than a year too late.

I agree with you, but Cubans always made a good faith to put quality players around Dirk. It's just that more times than not it Didn't work out. Lucky for us we won our championship. We may be down this year, but it won't last long. No matter what people say based on this off season, our Front Office is really good. And theyre the best at making trades. Just sit tight fella, we'll be in the mix by the trade deadline, and then Donnie and Cubes will wow you...

It might be considered a show of loyalty to trade Dirk to a contender rather than make him take part in a few dismal rebuilding seasons.

People also don't understand that he comes from a different culture. He didn't grow up in the me, me, me society that America has become. He always has been and always will be a team guy first. He doesn't look for the spotlight. He never has. That's why he rarely does endoresment deals. It's not because he hasn't gotten offers, it because he doesn't want them. He's got his title and cemented his legacy and will go into the hall of fame as the one of the best players to ever play in the NBA and the best European player ever to play in the NBA. I honestly believe he would retire before asking to be traded, especially for a trade that did not benefit the Mavs like trade for some huge contract or some old guy.

Might as well, they had a good run. Dirk either has to accept it or get out.

MetroMan

The Mavs run at any type of championship is over. It was gone for good the moment Deron Williams decided to stay with the Brooklyn Nets. But it isnít over simply because of the Williams decision. The Mavericks decided to do something strange when, after winning their first and only World Title, they blew up the team to make cap room to sign free agents Williams and Dwight Howard this offseason. They never tried to hide their intentions or even come up with a backup plan. For them to survive as a championship-caliber team, they had to get Williams and Howard to sign here.

The Mavs never deterred from the original plan. Never came up with an alternative. Never thought about looking at the draft to get younger. Never thought about trying to move up. Instead, they turned all their attention to Williams.

And they got burned badly.


Not only did the Mavericks lose there championship team, they lost there chance at a new big 3, but now they are at serious risk of losing there superstar, Dirk. Dirk has come out and said

"If we really come out with nobody this summer then maybe they want to rebuild and, obviously, Iím too old for that. Weíll just have to wait and see what happens on that front."

Dirk is just waiting to see if Mark Cuban has anything up his sleeves, if not, we will expect a trade. I am not sure how trading Dirk will work because he has a full no trade clause on his contract.

Dirk also said that having already won a championship pretty much sealed the deal for him to retire in Dallas.

But yeah... all they got on hand now pretty much is Dirk and Marion. SMH.

The funny thing is, I was very critical one Cuban when he let Chandler go, but when I posted that on here, everybody else was like: He's clearing cap space to make a run at Dwight and D-Will. And made me sound like I was an idiot.

Cuban did what Riley did. It worked for Riley, and for Cuban it put the team back five years.

Everyone knows what has happened, everyone that follows sports. And when people are on PSD clicking this thread obviously they are following sports.

The Mavs fell quicker than a sack of potatoes, and I for one didn't expect Cuban to become this cheap, money tight, kind of owner. Well that is what I have taken from it thus far. Feel for Mavs fans, but Dirk and Mavs fans got what they wanted before this downfall, and that was a championship.

As much as Dirk may want to leave Dallas, Dallas may want to be rid of Dirk, also, if they are intent on rebuilding.

Dirk makes, what, $20M+ a year, for the next 3 years or so? And he looks like he's dragging his body up and down the court at this point, aching with a big Steffi Graf frowny face through every possession of every game.

So... yeah. Maybe the Mavs want to retool. Or, maybe Dirk said something to piss off Cuban, so Cuban is going to crush Dirk's soul by making him slog through a 20-62 season or two.

Yeah, when you're a 19 year old Kevin Durant, one or two 20 win seasons is no problem. When you're a 35 year old Dirk Nowitzki... it's brutalizing.

Sorry for these comments... I am usually nicer. Maybe I'm remembering the lockout and the CP3 veto.

The Mavs didn't want to lock a bunch of money up into a bunch of 33+ year olds... That's a move I agreed with then and now.

We had a hot playoff run and even if we had kept the same team I honestly don't think we would have made the finals again. The Mavs have made the playoffs every year since 2001. How many teams can say that? They have made the finals twice since 06' and of course won a championship. You don't get that far by luck. Say whatever you will but Mark Cuban is no idiot or failure. This was the best option for the team and it didn't work out.

Outside of the Lakers and Spurs every franchise you guys support has been dying to have a team as consistently good as the Mavs have been for that long. And I say all of this with respect to all of you.

The Lakers and Spurs will soon face these same realizations in about 2 years.
