Report: Wesley Matthews Won’t Spurn the Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks were left holding an $80 million bag Wednesday night, as DeAndre Jordan stunningly changed his mind and re-signed with the LA Clippers.

Nothing of the sort is expected to take place with free agent guard Wesley Matthews, who verbally committed to a four-year pact with the Mavs.

Mark Cuban admitted that Dallas would’ve gone head-first into tank mode without the DeAndre and Wes acquisitions, and now … what?

For the time being, the Cuban camp is letting off steam by yelling at reporters on Twitter.

The billionaire owner said he’ll address the Jordan fiasco at some point, but that he “would not hold” Matthews to his promise if he wanted to go elsewhere.

Per The Oregonian:

Matthews, who last week gave a verbal agreement to Dallas to sign a four-year deal worth around $13 million the first year, is expected to sign and be introduced to the Dallas media on Thursday, the first day the NBA moratorium ends.


The former Blazers guard is part of what was believed to be a big offseason haul by the Mavericks and owner Mark Cuban.
