The Dallas Mavericks were relatively quiet ahead of the NBA trade deadline, but owner Mark Cuban explained Thursday on 105.3 The Fan that the team almost made a significant deal.
Two really big pieces," Cuban said, via the Dallas Morning News.
And the other piece, one of the teams just decided they didn’t want to trade a key guy to make it happen."
Dallas ended up trading a second-round pick for Willie Cauley-Stein and added Michael Kidd-Gilchrist off waivers but otherwise didn't upgrade the roster.
