Cuban apparently gave the final green light on the blockbuster (and ultimately inevitable) trade for All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo while sitting in the green room with other celebs:

Needless to say, but Cuban is very excited about bringing Rondo onboard.
Per the Dallas Morning News:
Mark Cuban is a big believer in basketball IQ and Rondo’s is off the charts. Cuban also is bullish on the 6-1 guard’s rebounding ability. Here’s what the owner had to say about the acquisition of Rondo:
“He is intense, he knows how to play. He immediately becomes our second-best rebounder. He pushes the ball and his length gives us more defensive options.
“And I think you will see an inspired player with something to prove when he puts on a Mavs’ uniform.”
