The Dallas Mavericks' point guard priorities are now shifting to 39-year-old and former Mav Steve Nash and one-time Mavs Summer League hand Jeremy Lin, sources told ESPN.com's Marc Stein.
Sources say the Mavs will pursue Nash and the New York Knicks' Lin, who is a restricted free agent. As such, the Knicks can match any offer made to Lin.
The Los Angeles Lakers have also taken an interest in Nash, according to an NBA.com report.
Dallas is undecided regarding Houston Rockets free agent Goran Dragic, who visited the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday and could command a starting salary of $10 million, according to sources.
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 on 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.
Dallas' incumbent point guard, Jason Kidd, remains a free agent. A source told ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher that the veteran guard's decision is down to the Knicks and Mavericks.
