  1. Mavs can see Josh Smith filling Wright role

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks never had any interest in Josh Smith when he was a jumper-happy forward seeking a starting job and a high salary. But they'd love to have Smith as a bargain-priced bench player, in particular as a replacement for traded...

  2. Nelson: 'Overpaid' for Parsons' promise

    Tim MacMahon

    Chandler Parsons fills up a box score like few others in the NBA, joining LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kevin Love as the league's lone players last season to average at least 16.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists while shooting better than 45 p...

  3. Parsons fallback options falling off the board

    Tim MacMahon

    The Dallas Mavericks might be in love with Lance Stephenson by Monday morning. Or maybe they'll rekindle the flame with Shawn Marion. At that point, if the Houston Rockets exercise their right to prevent Chandler Parsons from leaving for Dallas, t...

  4. Ariza to Houston pave Parsons' way to Dallas?

    Tim MacMahon

    The Houston Rockets have a sound replacement plan if they decide not to match the Mavericks' big bid for Chandler Parsons. That doesn't necessarily pave Parsons' road to Dallas, however. It just guarantees that perhaps the Mavs' preferred fallback...

  5. Dirk: LeBron 'can have keys to the city'

    Tim MacMahon

    In his self-deprecating style, Dirk Nowitzki jokes that premier free agents must not like him. After all, the Dallas Mavericks have failed to hook a big fish the last two summers. The Mavs are ready to try, try again, with Nowitzki preparing to pl...

  6. Free-agency preview: Power forwards

    Tim MacMahon

    The Dallas Mavericks haven't had a real backup power forward behind Dirk Nowitzki for years. Shawn Marion has typically slid over to power forward over the last five years when Nowitzki rested. The Mavs would love to continue that type of rotation...

  7. If not Mavs, who for Marion, Carter, Harris?

    Tim MacMahon

    They'd love to come back to Dallas, but the veteran free agents on the Mavericks' roster will all be willing to listen to any contenders interested in their services this summer. The mutual interest is strong enough that it's a decent bet that Sha...

  8. Monta Ellis: I love proving people wrong

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS -- His critics have been quieted, but Monta Ellis can still hear them. Nobody refers to Ellis as an analytics antihero anymore or calls him a selfish gunner who values volume scoring over winning after he's played a critical role in the Dal...

  9. Dirk: 'I just couldn't get it done'

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS -- Unlike last month at Madison Square Garden, the basketball gods didn't bless Dirk Nowitzki with an extremely fortunate shooter's roll on this buzzer-beater. With the Mavericks trailing the Minnesota Timberwolves by one point on the final...

  10. Mavericks love Monta Ellis' toughness

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS -- Only one Maverick has played every game this season, and it seems to coach Rick Carlisle that Monta Ellis is "hell-bent" to play all 82. "He's going to play unless he has a compound fracture," Carlisle said. Even in that case, Ellis s...

  11. Who can eventually catch Dirk?

    Tim MacMahon

    Dirk Nowitzki is not nearly done shooting up the NBA's all-time scoring list. The big German has already bumped five NBA legends down a spot this season and is on pace to pass Dominique Wilkins and Oscar Robertson before the playoffs begin. It's f...

  12. Kevin Love to Dallas? Laughable

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS - Yes, it's true. The Mavericks would love to trade for Kevin Love. Who wouldn't want a perennial All-Star who is just entering his prime? Just a few problems here. The first is that there is "no way" the Minnesota Timberwolves are deal...

  13. Opening Tip: Comparing Dirk to elite PFs

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS - Dirk Nowitzki's initial reaction is a long sigh. "I mean, you're putting me on the spot there," Nowitzki said. The question: Who is the best power forward in the NBA right now? After a moment of thought, Nowitzki mentions three names:...

  14. Mavs mailbag: Dirk still a legit superstar?

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS -- A couple of the wins weren't works of art and the loss was awfully ugly, but the Mavericks just finished a 4-1 run in a span of seven days. Suddenly, they're alone in seventh place in the West as the midseason point approaches. The pr...

  16. Matrix reloaded: Marion scores 32, gets critical stop

    Tim MacMahon

    There are weeks when Shawn Marion doesn't score 32 points. Heck, a week ago, it seemed like he might not score 32 points the rest of the season. That's an exaggeration, but this sort of offensive explosion certainly didn't seem to be around the co...
