The Dallas Mavericks' point guard priorities are now shifting to 39-year-old former Mav Steve Nash and one-time Mavs Summer League hand Jeremy Lin, according to ESPN.com's Marc Stein.
New York Knicks' Lin, a restricted free agent, but that they are undecided regarding Houston Rockets free agent Goran Dragic, who visited the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday and could command a starting salary of $10 million. The Knicks can match any offer made to Lin.
It appears the Mavs are set to lose shooting guard Jason Terry to the Boston Celtics, who have offered the veteran a three-year deal for more than $15 million. Terry's departure and Deron Williams' decision to re-sign with the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday could open the door for combo guard Delonte West to re-sign with the Mavs.
West, who played in Dirk Nowitzki's charity baseball game Saturday and held a basketball camp in Fort Worth on Tuesday despite not being under contract, said he does not know what other teams might have interest in signing him. West said he is seeking a multiyear deal after playing on one-year, minimum contracts the last two seasons.
"Looking for a team to pay me what I'm worth, not a cent more," West said.
