Source: Mavs still interested in Luis Scola

According to a source, the Dallas Mavericks' acquisition of Elton Brand has not diminished their interest in Houston Rockets amnestied power forward Luis Scola.

Scola has three years left on his deal and wouldn't seem an ideal fit on the floor. However, he, like Brand, would come cheaply through the amnesty process and could become a trade asset.

The Mavs don't have to decide whether they will make a bid for Scola until Sunday, with the winning bid being revealed at 4 p.m. that day.
