Mavs were smart to redo Dirk's deal

Dallas' latest update of Dirk Nowitzki's contract will greatly help the team's cap situation for 2017-18 if Nowitzki elects to play a 20th season then, Kevin Pelton writes. Rating latest NBA deals (Insider)

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Mavs would have to move some salary to be in the market for a max-contract player next summer if Dirk Nowitzki returns for the second season of his contract. Dallas has $61.1 million in salary committed to players for the 2017-18 season, assuming promising 2015 first-round pick Justin Anderson's $1.6 million option is picked up. That would leave less than $16 million in space under the projected cap of $102 million if Nowitzki returns to play his 20th season for a $25 million salary. ESPN's Marc Stein reports that the second season of Nowitzki's two-year, $50 million deal features a $5 million team option in case the face of the franchise opts to retire.

Rodrigue Beaubois will decline the Mavericks' invitation to bring their former first-round pick back to Dallas, according to a league source. The Mavs offered Beaubois, 28, a three-year partially guaranteed contract for the veteran's minimum. He would have competed for a roster spot in training camp with summer league star Jonathan Gibson, whose three-year minimum deal features a fully guaranteed salary for the first season. Spanish reports indicate Beaubois, who showed flashes of brilliance as a rookie in 2009-10 before injuries marred the rest of his four-year Mavs tenure, is close to agreeing on a deal with Saski Baskonia in Spain.

Cuban: 'Villain' Warriors good for NBA business

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said the possibility of the Golden State Warriors becoming villains to fans due to their confluence of talent will actually be good for the business of the NBA.

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Mark Cuban thinks Golden State's super team is good for NBA business. "They become the villain," Cuban told ESPN. "Just like when LeBron went to Miami, I loved that there was a villain. They become the villain. I'm fine with that. Everybody's going to root for them to lose."
