Mavericks expert discusses Spurs' historic postseason run

Tim Cato of MavsMoneyball and J.R. Wilco discuss their teams' meeting in the playoffs, as well a bevy of topics that impact both Spurs and Mavericks fans. It's easy to forget about the squads in the rear view mirror while your team's playoffs hopes are still alive, but now that the summer has fully arrived, I thought I'd reach out to Tim Cato of Mavs Moneyball and have a chat about how well the Mavericks fared against the Spurs, the aftermath of the first round, the off-season changes Dallas has made, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Dirk Nowitzki's place among the greats, and...

No real backup PF? No problem

The Dallas Mavericks do not have a pure power forward on the roster other than Dirk Nowitzki. They do not consider that to be a problem. It’s been that case for several years with Shawn Marion sliding over a spot for most of the minutes when Nowitzki rested. Marion’s tenure in Dallas has almost certainly ended, but the Mavs have several players on the roster they believe are capable of playing quality minutes at power forward. Coach Rick Carlisle, who would like to cut Nowitzki’s minutes down to 30 per game if possible, listed Chandler Parsons, Al-Farouq Aminu, Jae Crowder and Richard...

Five Out Offense: The 15-man roster is nearly set, looking closer at Aminu

Also, Mark Cuban is a good businessman with a new hip, and is now ready to party with Chandler Parsons. Or something like that. 1. ROSTER TALK: Here's what it looks like at the moment. PG: Jameer Nelson* (Devin Harris, Raymond Felton, Gal Mekel)SG: Monta Ellis (Ricky Ledo)SF: Chandler Parsons (Jae Crowder, Richard Jefferson, Al-Farouq Aminu)PF: Dirk Nowitzki (Brandan Wright)C: Tyson Chandler (Greg Smith) Nelson could officially sign today, leaving one roster spot open. It could go to Eric Griffin, who the Mavericks signed to a three-year deal -- mostly unguaranteed, but with $150k committed...

Nowitzki took pay cut for Chandler Parsons - Dirk Nowitzki (F) Dallas Mavericks

Dirk Nowitzki originally agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal with the Mavericks, but when the Mavericks needed additional money to bring on Chandler Parsons, Dirk agreed to shave off an additional $5 million to help them complete the deal.

Nelson talks Dirk, Devin, what's next for Mavs

LAS VEGAS -- President of basketball operations Donnie Nelson spent a few minutes with ESPN Dallas on Friday to talk about Dirk Nowitzki's new deal, Devin Harris being back with the club, the summer league in Las Vegas and what other moves the Mavs may make. Dirk's deal: When Dirk Nowitzki said he'd re-sign with the Mavs early in free agency, sources would only say that Nowitzki had accepted a three-year deal similar in structure to the last contract signed by San Antonio's Tim Duncan, which was a three-year, $30 million deal.

The dollar details on Dirk's discount deal

The down-to-the-dollar details on Dirk Nowitzki’s discount deal, via ShamSports.com’s salary database: 2014-15 salary: $7,974,482 2015-16 salary: $8,333,334 2016-17 salary: $8,692,184 The three-year, $25 million contract includes a player option for the third season. Nowitzki will be the fourth-highest paid player on the Mavs’ roster this season behind Tyson Chandler ($14,846,888), Chandler Parsons ($14,700,000) and Monta Ellis ($8,360,000).

Parsons looks forward to learning from Dirk

Dirk Nowitzki has gone from “obviously one of my favorite players growing up” to a friend to a teammate for Chandler Parsons. “It’ll be amazing to play with him,” Parsons said on a conference call with Dallas reporters. Parsons, the 25-year-old, multi-skilled small forward, intends to take full advantage of the opportunity. Parsons was a captain in Houston last season and plans to take on significant leadership role in Dallas, but there’s no doubt he’ll be in line behind the big German and looks forward to following and learning from Nowitzki.

Rashard Lewis moves on, signs with Dallas Mavericks

The Heat had renounced the rights to the veteran earlier Tuesday. The Miami Heat have quickly reshaped their roster since Friday's turn of events but one key member of last year's squad is also moving on. Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Rashard Lewis is signing a one-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks, according to his agent Colin Bryant. Lewis appears to be signing at the veteran's minimum to back up Dirk Nowitzki and it's a nice signing for the Mavs, but fresh blood needs to be infused into next season's Heat squad and there are already several players returning in...

Mavs officially sign forwards Nowitzki, Parsons

DALLAS (AP) The Dallas Mavericks have officially signed forwards Dirk Nowitzki and Chandler Parsons.

Contending in Dallas priceless to Dirk

What would another championship with the Dallas Mavericks be worth to Dirk Nowitzki? The answer is probably priceless. If you want to go with an actual dollar figure, start somewhere in the $60 million range. Nowitzki left at least that much money on the table by taking a three-year, $25 million deal to return to the Mavs instead of listening to pitches from teams interested in paying him around the max, as ESPN.com’s Marc Stein reported.

Dirk Nowitzki officially signs with the Dallas Mavericks for 3 years, $25 million

And all is right with the world. We all knew Dirk Nowitzki would be a Maverick for life, but his new three-year contract with the Dallas Mavericks is now official. It's worth $25 million according to ESPN's Marc Stein, a further discount on the $30 million it had already been reported Dirk agreeing to. With him making about two million fewer dollars than before, it gives the Mavericks a little added free agency as they look to fill their final three roster spots and officially re-sign Devin Harris (they have reached verbal agreement). Marc Stein also reported that both Houston and the LA...

Mavericks make it official with Dirk Nowitzki

It’s mostly just a rubber stamp, but the Mavericks today officially re-signed face of the franchise Dirk Nowitzki. The official release follows: The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have re-signed 12-time NBA All-Star Dirk Nowitzki. Per team policy, terms …

Say farewell to Shawn Marion

The Rockets’ decision not to match the Mavericks’ offer to Chandler Parsons is without question cause for celebration in Dallas. It’s the first time during the Mark Cuban era that the Mavs have made a big splash in free agency by signing an impact starter whose career was on the rise. The 6-foot-9 Parsons’ shooting, passing and ballhandling skills make him a beautiful fit for Rick Carlisle’s flow offense, a phenomenal complement to the brilliance of aging All-Star Dirk Nowitzki and dynamic driving ability of Monta Ellis.

Rockets to allow Chandler Parsons to leave for Mavericks in free agency

The Rockets have opted not to match the Chandler Parsons offer sheet, allowing the small forward to go to Dallas on a 3 year, $46 million deal. According to multiple reports, the Rockets have opted to allow Chandler Parsons to go to Dallas, choosing not to exercise their option to match the three year, $46 million pact he signed three days before. Parsons will join Dirk Nowitzki, Mark Cuban, and the rest of the Mavericks in Dallas, taking on a larger role than what he had in Houston behind James Harden and Dwight Howard. Replacing him is Trevor Ariza, signed to a four year deal that is...
