Mavs Notes: Dirk, LeBron, Melo, Chandler

Dirk Nowitzki is thrilled to have Tyson Chandler back in Dallas, writes Sean Deveney of the Sporting News. “He helped me get a championship, so we had great chemistry together,” Nowitzki said when asked about the trade when it was heavily rumored last night. “So if it is true, I will be thrilled.”  Dirk went on to say that he’d “love” to welcome Carmelo Anthony to Dallas and will help to recruit him if he’s interested in coming aboard.  Here’s more out of Dallas..

  • The Mavs are real players for LeBron James and Melo after the trade, a team source told Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com.
  • Dirk also told reporters, including Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports (on Twitter) that he expects a short and quick meeting with owner Mark Cuban before coming to terms on a new deal.
  • The Mavs initiated the Chandler talks weeks ago and were very motivated to get a deal done, Howard Beck of Bleacher Report tweets.
  • Chandler and his camp feel “great” about the trade, a source tells David Aldridge of NBA.com (Twitter link).
  • Mark Cuban isn’t admitting a mistake by re-acquiring Chandler, writes MacMahon.  “It’s apples and oranges,” Cuban said via an email. “You couldn’t get from there to here.”
  • There won’t be any drama from Dirk in free agency, as Jeff Caplan of NBA.com writes.

The Mavs are real players for Lebron according to a team source? HA! Why would he consider Dallas? Old Dirk, Old Chandler, Old Marion

Because Dirk is leaps and bounds better than Bosh, Ellis is an upgrade over Wade considering his age and health, and Carlisle is a better head coach than just about anyone in the league. A big four of Dirk, LBJ, Ellis, and Chandler would be a damn good team…much better than what they could do in Miami.
