Mavericks to meet with LeBron James’ agent


The Dallas Mavericks have a ton of cap space and will be big players in free agency. They’re reportedly heavily pursuing Carmelo Anthony, and would be interested in LeBron James if it weren’t for reports that he is not leaving Miami.

Despite that, LeBron’s agent will field calls from a few teams and the Dallas Mavericks are on the short list.

Before you get to excited, consider Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski’s report:

Among top-level NBA executives and agents, there remains a strong belief that Miami will convince its key players to return on new deals. Within the suitors for James, there’s an increased pessimism they’ll never get a serious chance to engage James in free-agent meetings and presentations, sources told Yahoo Sports. His agent Rich Paul told teams he will accept their calls beginning after midnight on Tuesday, but there’s no sense the formal meetings will be scheduled in the near future, sources said.

Still it is better than not even being able to make the pitch. Who knows, the Mavericks could earn a face-to-face meeting with LeBron.
