While the Mavericks' plan to clear as much cap space as possible this summer isn't exactly a well-concealed secret, owner Mark Cuban says the team could make a move that would compromise that approach, under one circumstance:
"Priority number one is to win a championship,'' Cuban told reporters, including Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News. "If there's something that takes up cap room, but puts us over the top, I'm in. We're going to be opportunistic. If it's something good, we'll take advantage of it."
Cuban added that the team isn't looking to make a move, but that the Mavs would certainly be listening if a team made them the right offer. As Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas writes, the Mavs owner also dismissed a recent rumor suggesting Rodrigue Beaubois could be available: "That’s what people in New Orleans say because they’ve always liked him."
