Charlie Villanueva is making his case for a Mavericks roster spot

Even if he doesn't stick in Dallas, the much-maligned big man has shown he still has some game in the pre-season. When it comes to the back end of the roster, one of the big pre-season storylines has been the play of Charlie Villanueva, who has made a strong case for a spot on the team. Villanueva came into training camp ago as the longest of long shots, signed to an unguaranteed contract on a team that didn't have any open roster spots. After seeing his play decline in each of his five seasons with the Detroit Pistons, he posted career-low numbers across the board last season and looked...

Chandler Parsons: I want to prove I'm worth $46 million deal

DALLAS – Chandler Parsons embraces the challenge of proving the Dallas Mavericks didn’t overpay for him. The Mavs certainly paid a premium rate for a player who has never been an All-Star, signing Parsons to a three-year, $46 million deal that is close to a maximum contract for a four-year veteran. That was the price of poker for the Mavs, who had the luxury of bidding high for Parsons due to Dirk Nowitzki’s discount deal and had to do so to have any chance of the Houston Rockets declining their right to match the offer to their restricted free agent.

'Sky's the limit' for Mavs' offensive machine

DALLAS – These Dallas Mavericks will be an offensive juggernaut. That might sound like a premature declaration, particularly considering the fact that this starting five has played a grand total of two preseason games as a unit. But just listen to LeBron James, a pretty good authority on offensive awesomeness. “If it’s not the top three or four best offenses in the league, then you don’t get any better than Rick Carlisle offense,” James said after getting a firsthand look at the Mavs on Friday night in Cleveland.

Vince Carter appreciates Mavs, but 'had to move on'

DALLAS – As the Memphis Grizzlies took the floor for shootaround, the players gravitated to one of the corners of the American Airlines Center court. “This is the spot, right?” they asked Vince Carter. “Nah, a little bit over,” Carter replied, basking in the memory of his finest moment with the Dallas Mavericks, that Game 3-winning buzzer-beater in last season’s playoff series against the San Antonio Spurs. Carter has many fond memories from his three years in Dallas, when the eight-time All-Star reinvented himself as one of the NBA’s best sixth men.
