“Rashard made a difficult decision to join Dallas after two memorable seasons in Miami,” agent Colin Bryant said. “He would like to thank [Heat owners] Micky Arison, [executives] Pat Riley, Andy Elisburg and the entire Heat organization. He will always consider them family and champions.


“After talking to [Mavericks owner] Mark Cuban and coach Rick Carlisle, he felt a comfort level with the Mavericks. He’s excited to join another championship organization.”
