Between this & Mullins, I wonder if a Pau deal is on the horizon or we're shopping Jordan Hill.

Something has to be going on otherwise we'd have too many 4/5s on the team. I'd rather keep Jordan Hill though unless the return is for a really good SF.

I really liked him a ton, but surprised few teams have actually really pursued him. He has weaknesses in rebounding and interior defense, but he's super nimble and athletic and excels as a weakside shotblocker and perimeter rover, and has an offensive game that's got a ton of potential. Could have been a great project for us.

I'd guess more money and more years as a Maverick.

David Aldridge ‏@daldridgetnt 1h
Dallas finalizes deal with F/C Brandan Wright for two years, $10M guaranteed, with an additional $1.1M in incentives, per agent Jim Tanner.

Wow! Given how everyone has already spent their cash, I didn't think he'd get that much.

Surprising to see the Mavs pay him so much this late in free agency, but I'm actually surprised that no one else had offered him similar money already, with the way bigs are getting paid nowadays.

I haven't really seen him play much, but 23 points, 11 boards, 3 blocks, 60% shooting (per 48 minutes) seems impressive enough to warrant $5 mil.

he's quite valuable given how many teams play small for the majority of the game these days. you can't put him on the floor much against teams like Memphis, but most nights, he can run at center and seriously disrupt pick and roll teams while scoring very efficiently on the other end.
