Mark Cuban: Roddy Beaubois Close to Untouchable

Cuban would consider trading Beaubois, but you’d have to give up quite a bit to get him. ESPN reports: “Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has a message for the Charlotte Bobcats or any other team with designs on prying Roddy Beaubois from Dallas in a deadline trade: The kid isn’t available. ‘With a few exceptions,’ Cuban said prior to Saturday night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks. Without naming names (insert Carmelo Anthony here), Cuban made it clear it would take a superstar-type player in return for Cuban to relinquish the one young, up-and-comer on the Mavs’ roster … The Mavs have at least had internal discussions regarding several players such as Charlotte’s Stephen Jackson, Detroit’s Tayshaun Prince and Milwaukee’s Corey Maggette, among others. But, if those clubs have Beaubois at the top of their wish, Cuban says he will tell them to try again. As for the chances the Mavs make a move before the deadline, Cuban said, ‘that’s up to other teams.’”

    Never even heard of the kid, but then again I don’t follow the Mavs.

    Dude can score in bunches.

    Kid has a ton of potential…. don’t know about this superstar talk though.

    If think if Cuban can get S. Jax for Beaubois then go for it. That’s a steal imo.

    niQ, I disagree, only because we saw what Roddy Buckets can do last year, if the Mavs give up on him and he becomes a star then Cuban will be crucified.

    I know of Beaubois but I didn’t think he was this valuable.

    dude had a 40 point game last year.. thats pretty damn good when you play on the same team as dirk and terry

  • max

    dude is a beast. I actually cant think of anyone outside the superstar spectrum that I would trade him for, last year he just seemed incredibly good at points …

  • Redirkulous Kidd

    Roddy Buckets! This kid can score in bunches and is very quick. And I agree with AllBall, If we let Roddy go and he blows up…

    Cuban talk way to much. He should just focus on trading for and extending more bad contracts. Dude is plain goofy!
