Mavericks bring back C Bernard James

Mavericks bring back C Bernard James 


Marc Stein                  @ESPNSteinLine    Follow    

ESPN sources say Dallas Mavericks are finalizing one-year minimum deal to bring back C Bernard James for his third straight season w/club

How many guys we going to have on the roster?  and is this telling us there will be some more trades before the season starts?

No way to know what this will mean. He could be Frisco bound.

Good thing we aren't going to waste a roster spot on Blatche or O'Neal. I was worried for a bit there. banghead

Dear Cuban and Donnie, great job on the offseason. Now go get Rondo and sign Jermaine O'Neal and we'll be ready to go get Dirk and Tyson another ring.

I'd take Sarge over Blatche or O'Neal

This clearly means we are about to trade Wright in a package for Bledsoe.

Just look at the timing of this!!!

Didn't the Mavs say they wanted to keep that Devin-Wright combo off the bench tho?...the timing of this is odd just like you said.

Guess that means Griffin is headed to the DLeague.

What a strangely balanced roster.

PG-Jameer Nelson | Devin Harris | Raymond Felton | Gal Mekel
SG-Monta Ellis | Ricky Ledo
SF-Chandler Parsons | Al Farooq Aminu | Richard Jefferson | Jae Crowder
PF-Dirk Nowitzki
CT-Tyson Chandler | Brandan Wright | Greg Smith | Bernard James

Not sure why everyone is assuming that the 18th or 19th guy signed (depending on whether you count Rashard) is going to be one of the 15 on the roster when the season starts.

It looks to me like there will be 4 players in camp (Griffin, Lamb, Johnson, James) auditioning for only 1 roster slot, and if Lewis heals up there might not even be the 1 slot open.

Re: Mavericks bring back C Bernard James 


They'll probably just trim down to 15 after camp and send the worst of the lot to frisco. But there's still hope for the trade hungry, there might be a trade in the works with more people leaving than coming :)
Either way, i'm happy for Sarge to get another contract. I wonder if he was waiting on the Mavs or if he really didn't get any other offers.

ever wondered why the entire freaking league isn't going after Blatche and O'Neal? that included brilliant front offices and the worst front offices you can think of.

if you know the answer, then you know why the Mavs and every other team you can think of are dodging those two players up to this point.

on Dirk handling the hard path ahead of him:

I am not surprised. I'm not saying he makes the roster for sure, but they could use another big body and he looked improved in the summer league games that I saw.

Felton / Wright / Crowder / 2 Unprotected 1sts for Bledsoe


PG-Bledsoe / Nelson / Mekel
SG-Ellis / Harris / Lamb
SF-Parsons / Jefferson / Ledo
PF-Dirk / Aminu / Johnson
C-Tyson / Smith / Sarge


Seems like a pretty balanced roster to me ..

1-No need for Felton with Bledsoe
2-No need for Wright with Smith and Sarge
3-No need for Crowder with Aminu / Griffin / Ledo / Jefferson


Griffin or Lamb could be the 15th man

Wasn't O'Neil done long ago?  I think Blatche is suppposed to be a head case.  I know we need another big, but those guys?

The offense, when hitting shots, looks absolutely unstoppable.

Bryan Gutierrez @ BallinWithBryan 32 Min.

According to @ espn_macmahon's post, James' one-year deal will be fully guaranteed
