Yeah that trade had more negative impact on this team than many realize.
Maybe some think it's "Dumb" but we are better off tanking if we don't get Jordan or LMA at this point and put ourselves in a position to have a pick next season than try to piece this thing together with guys like Asik or Hibbert or someone equivalent.

I don't think Tyson even considered returning after the Rondo fiasco.

Not understanding your point....you honestly think we are in a better situation than the Suns in the eyes of Chandler?

The biggest FAs we've been rumored to go after this off-season are LMA and DJ both of whom would make TC resigning virtually impossible. The only way we supposedly get better is by signing either of them and if we don't sign either we'd be basically back to where we were last season but older.

Phoenix is a young team looking for some leadership which is something he provides. We might have been better last season but I don't follow the logic that because we made it to the POs last season with an aging team will make us better than a growing youthful team next season...especially since a key piece from our team is going to their team.

@espn_macmahon: Mavs' meeting with DeAndre Jordan is done. Lasted about 4 1/2 hours.

@TravisRW: A 4.5 hour meeting after dinner etc. last night...that's a lot of time.

@Sir_Fahrenheit: Maybe Jerry Jones killed someone and they're trying to decide what to do with the body.

I choose Option C.

Jerry Jones killed someone and they try to hide the body.

Maybe Jones brought his Hooker Bus from Arlington?

3 hours last night
4.5 hours today
Dozens of times hanging out with Parsons.

If he finks, he is a giant jerk for taking up almost 8 hours of our time.

@espn_macmahon: Source says Mavs' meeting with DeAndre Jordan "went really well," per source. Of course, they all do. But Mavs are cautiously optimistic.

Hunch. He updates that daily or on the hour or whatever.

Still, I give us a 50% chance which is the highest I've personally thought.

50/50 is always the safe bet... I live dangerously, so I'm going with a 51% chance that he signs with us.

@FisolaNYDN: Knicks are definitely in play for Robin Lopez. Lakers and Mavs will also make a push depending on where DeAndre Jordan lands.

My negative projection for the next days

Aldridge signs a Max Contract with the Spurs (Bringing him into our Division).
Jordan took the Mavs to set the bar highly but at the end stays in LA and they get Paul Pierce to MLE.

Matthews signs with the Mavs but at the start of the season they know hes not the same with the injury.

No other relevant free agents sign with the Mavs.

Why? you havent heard my positive projection

DeAndre signs with the Mavs.
Mavs get Matthews who appears to be ahead of his rehab schedule and will be 100% at the start of the season.

Mavs also get Mo Williams for a reasonable deal.

Its DJ or bust at this point as far as I'm concerned.
Not sure Donnie has anything left to work with if we miss out on him.

That would mean we get Jordan in the first place...

Right now its pretty much 50/50 between the Mavs and him staying with the Clippers i guess.

The Lakers and Knicks are a complete mess. I doubt hes wasting the next years there while they rebuild.

If this was 2008 i would agree we have no chance but right now the Lakers and Knicks arent attractive from a sportive perspective.

And for some odd reason, the Kings want to do a sign and trade for Rondo, we balk, but their owner offers us a 2016 first round pick.......and of course he forgot to lottery protect it.

Don't really know why Jordan wouldn't pick Dallas if he was being truthful about what he wanted. He wants to be the main guy (which Dallas can offer with Dirk on his last legs and Parsons not talented enough for such a role), and money is not an issue (Dallas will offer him max money now and max money when he opts out if he stays healthy).

If the worst plays out and he balks then the Mavs find themselves in a rough situation. Best play would probably be to admit defeat and play for the lottery. What would hurt the most in such a situation would be the betrayal of Dirk, who signed such a team friendly contract with the hope of being competitive. Having that dashed in less than a year would be difficult to watch although I am sure the big fella would put a brave face on.

Enough with the negativity though. Come on Deandre, I want to enjoy watching the NBA next season!

The Lakers and Knicks are a complete mess. I doubt hes wasting the next years there while they rebuild.

If this was 2008 i would agree we have no chance but right now the Lakers and Knicks arent attractive from a sportive perspective.
Ha Lakers, as long as Kobe is running the ship and Byron is the yes man, no top tier FA will go there.

Agree but i still need much preparation to watch DeAndre shoot Free Throws lol. He better hit the Gym with Dirk and Holger in the Offseason if we really sign him.

Which blows my mind because they're totally wasting one of the NBA's best GMs in Mitch Kupchak... Buss-the-Lesser has totally let Kobe run that organization into the ground.

Hearing Clippers are on the brink of signing Paul Pierce


That would be very bad news for us in terms of DJ

Yep, while superstars headed to their sunsets, Dirk, Duncan are on their last legs, taking paycuts, here's Kobe, telling Buss to bend over and give him 25 a year....and it still leaves Kobe wondering why they suck.

Pierce is slower than slow. Next season he'll be slow like a turtle. He wont make a difference.
