Dwight Howard won’t sign with Dallas Mavericks
Mark Cuban confirmed via email.
DALLAS The Mavericks will not get free agent Dwight Howard. According to Eddie Sefko at SportsDayDFW, Cuban sent out an email confirming that the Mavs are out of the running.
“Got word we are out of the DH sweepstakes. We gave it a shot and it didnt work out . It was truly an experience . At some point i will post our video and presentation we made.
"I have no idea what team he is going to, they wouldnt tell me. So its on to plan B.”
Howard has not confirmed where he will go yet. Media reports say it's now between Houston and Los Angeles. Houston is reportedly the favorite.
The Mavericks are adamant that they will find attractive free agents with their pile of salary-cap money. It is looking more and more that these are their best options:
- First, target Monta Ellis.
- Second, take a risk on Andrew Bynum.
- Third, overpay for Nikola Pekovic, a restricted free agent.
- Fourth, pair Mo Williams with Ellis for a shoot-first-ask-questions-later backcourt.
