Remember when people thought Dirk was soft? Not a winner? Yeah, forget all that. By nearly any measure, Nowitzki has been more clutch than Kobe Bryant.

If Arizona's 7-foot sharpshooter Lauri Markkanen is to be drafted in the top 10, Minnesota and Dallas are the most likely destinations.

The Warriors can become just the third team in the Pop Era to eliminate the Spurs on their home floor, joining Dallas (twice) and Phoenix.
Nerlens Noel would surely play more as a starting center elsewhere, but he could get more time filling in for Dirk Nowitzki if he stays with the Mavericks.

One team that's interested in free agent point guard Jrue Holdiay? The Dallas Mavericks. League sources say members of the Mavericks organization view Holiday as a free agent target this summer. Holiday will likely command top dollar on the market and Dallas would probably have to clear some cap space to make Holiday a competitive offer. New Orleans would also like to retain Holiday and can offer him more money than any other team. Some in the Knicks organization are fans of the 26-year-old, though it's unclear just how strong that interest is from New York. The length and amount of Holiday's contract would likely take New York out of the running.
Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says his team "did everything possible to lose games" once Dallas was out of postseason contention.
The Mavs could really use a young point guard to build around and would be happy with whichever one falls to them at No. 9.

Magic Johnson headlines the team representatives for Tuesday night's NBA Draft Lottery.
If the Dallas Mavericks don't move up, or down in the lottery they will own the No. 9 selection in the 2017 NBA draft.
Dallas forward/center Nerlens Noel will become a restricted free agent July 1, but the Mavs would like to have him back.

It's officially a tradition. The Cowboys open at home against the New York Giants for the third straight year and fourth time in five years. In 2012 they opened at the Giants. The close to the year isn't easy. The Cowboys play three of their final four games away from home (New York, Oakland and Philadelphia in Weeks 14, 15 and 17) with their only home game against Seattle.
If this draft wasn't stacked with PGs, Frank Ntilikina could be a top-five draft choice. He's skilled, tough and could be the team's floor general for years to come.
Devin Harris' salary for next season is only partially guaranteed, so the Mavericks could waive him to increase their salary-cap room in July.
