Several Dallas Mavericks players that are active on Twitter as well as Mark Cuban sent out messages upon learning that the league and the players agreed to a tentative labor agreement that, if ratified by both sides, will end the nearly six-month-long lockout.
Here's what they said:
Mark Cuban (@mcuban): Almost there Mavs fans ! Can't wait to present solid gold commemorative mouse pads I got the guys !!
