The Dallas Mavericks will be the owners of a new practice facility in the near future, according to the owner, Mark Cuban.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks will be building a new practice facility in the upcoming future. The announcement was made on June 2nd and the site location was revealed as well.

In an ever-changing NBA, the trend of teams having their own separate practice facilities at a different location than the arena has become the norm, and Cuban was not going to be the one left out. So just this week, the new facility was announced in Dallas near the American Airlines Center.

This is not the most exciting news from the Dallas Mavericks organization of late, but it is nice to see Dallas keeping up with the times. The location, for all the Dallas locals reading, is 10 acres along North Stemmons Freeway in the Design District.

The new practice facility will be within walking distance of the American Airlines Center. This will clearly be a huge upgrade to the previous workout facility the Mavs have used which is located in a basement gym at the AAC.

It was estimated that the tract of land that Mark Cuban bought could be worth up to $43 million and is a large piece of land.

This information is all fine and cool but, possibly the most exciting part of the announcement is that Cuban has said the land could be used for a future arena. The American Airlines Center is still fairly new and has been kept up with very well, but with an owner like Mark Cuban, anything could happen.

The Dallas Mavericks currently share an arena with the Dallas Stars and have to do some converting during the two seasons when each team plays at home. A new arena could mean each team gets its own home stadium in the future.

It will be interesting to see exactly where all of this goes, but for now we can just be happy that Mark Cuban continues to spend his money on the most important things: the Dallas Mavericks. (Information per Tim McMahon, ESPN and Mark Cuban.)
