NBA & Mavericks Rumors: Pre-Free Agency Roundup
By Rami Michail
Free agency is to officially begin in a few hours (12 PM Eastern Time) and plenty of buzz is circulating around the Dallas Mavericks and every other NBA team.
Some current Mavs’ free agents (Tyson Chandler, Monta Ellis, and Rajon Rondo) have had their names mentioned a few times today. Chandler with the Bucks, Rondo with the Kings, and Monta with a number of teams.
The Los Angeles Lakers are looking to make strong pushes at two of the Mavs’ top targets by clearing some caproom.
We earlier posted on Mavs rumored interest in Iman Shumpert, but he may not be the only restricted free agent in play. Enes Kanter and Patrick Beverely are supposedly also in the mix.
The team is also interested in bringing back high-flying big man, Brandan Wright, who the team traded away to bring in Rondo.
Wesley Matthews has also been linked to the Mavs. He could potentially help the Mavs’ pitch to Blazers’ teammate, Aldridge.
Expect the rumors to just increase and get even hotter, especially around the Mavs. With only six players under contract, the Mavs will be making plenty of moves starting tomorrow.
