Cuban: Mavs not interested in restricted FAs
At least, that’s what Mark Cuban indicated during his radio appearance Monday afternoon.
“I don’t know if there are any free agents that are requiring offer sheets that are on our radar right now,” Cuban said, pointing to the process of waiting for the player’s previous team to exercise its right to match as the reason.
The most intriguing restricted free agents: Minnesota center Nikola Pekovic, Milwaukee point guard Brandon Jennings and Sacramento combo guard Tyreke Evans. Hold off on custom orders for any of those guys in Mavs jerseys, no matter how well the burly Pekovic's low-post game might mesh with Dirk Nowitzki's shooting skills.
Of course, the Mavs radar can change at a moment’s notice once the free agency frenzy gets going.
