DALLAS -- The odds don't appear good that the Andre Iguodala will end up in Dallas.
A source told ESPN.com on Wednesday that the Houston Rockets have recently renewed discussions with the 76ers about a deal involving Iguodala and Dalembert for the expiring contract of Tracy McGrady. ... [T]he Suns have also entered the mix, offering Amare Stoudemire for Iguodala and Dalembert. The Cavs and Dallas Mavericks have explored Iguodala deals as well.
Dalembert could be a deal-breaker for the Mavs. While he might be a nice fit for the Mavs' roster, he has a big contract that runs through next season and includes a 15-percent trade kicker.
Mark Cuban is willing to take on salary to make the Mavs better, but Iguodala's deal (four year, $56 million) would test the billionaire's financial pain threshold. Adding Dalembert would be too much, a source told ESPNDallas.com last week.
Of course, Cuban acknowledged Wednesday night that he's more inclined to make a trade now than he was a week ago.
Another factor with Philly: Ford reports that the Sixers are determined to get talent back in such a deal, not just expiring contracts. In the Mavs' case, that likely means rookie Rodrigue Beaubois, a favorite of Cuban's.
