Dallas Mavs Want Udonis Haslem

by July 12, 2010

Mark Cuban isn’t going to make life easy for Pat Riley and co. down in Miami (shocker!). Yahoo! has the details: “The Dallas Mavericks are determined to make it difficult for free agent Udonis Haslem to easily return to the Miami Heat. The Mavs have offered a contract believed to be a minimum of three years and $20 million, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The Mavericks have offered Haslem their full mid-level exception starting at $5.85 million this season, a league source said. The Heat are trying to re-sign Haslem to play with Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh, but salary cap restraints could leave them with as little as $4.3 million a year to pay him. And that’s assuming the Heat signs free agent Mike Miller(notes) starting at $4.9 million.”
