    Mark Cuban says Mavericks nearly acquired Kobe Bryant in 2007

    Kobe Bryant almost became a member of the Dallas Mavericks, according to owner Mark Cuban.

    On the final night of Bryant's career, Cuban revealed that he thought he had agreed on a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2007 offseason, when Bryant had demanded a trade.

    "I could have sworn that we had a deal done for Josh Howard and Jet," said Cuban, referring to Jason Terry.

    Cuban could have sworn the deal was for Howard and JET but he was wrong. The Lakers wanted Dirk. Love has even talked about this and has said that there was no way he would have agreed to come to Dallas if Dirk was part of that trade. The ONLY reason he would even consider agreeing to that deal is to play with Dirk.
