Earlier today, we heard from ESPN.com's Chad Ford that the Mavericks may kick the tires on a trade for DeMarcus Cousins at some point this summer. Here are a few more of the latest items out of Dallas:
- French big man Rudy Gobert will work out for the Mavericks tomorrow, according to EuropeanProspects.com (via Twitter).
- When Phil Jackson was asked last week whether he thought Dwight Howard would re-sign with the Lakers, he asked, "Would you, if you felt like your game wasn't going to be featured?" Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com takes that point a step further, making the case that if Howard wants to be featured in an offense, Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle could come up with creative ways to maximize his talent in Dallas.
- Responding to Mark Cuban's comments about implementing a two-year plan to return the Mavericks to championship contention, Mac Engel of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram calls Cuban out for not making the most of the last few years of Dirk Nowitzki's prime. Engel argues that the so-called two-year plan actually amounts to a four-year plan, since it's been going on for the last couple seasons.
