Mark Cuban talked about the trade deadline, last year's and this year's, prior to tonight's game against the Nets.
One subject was the Kings-Bulls trade, which sent Sacramento's Brad Miller and John Salmons to Chicago. Said Cuban, "Sacramento was looking to trade two, we just wanted one." Salmons name had been bandied about concerning the Mavericks.
Also, plenty of chat about the Kidd-Harris trade. To those who think the trade was ill-advised, Cuban said: "Watch your first basketball game. If you don’t see the impact Jason Kidd has had, that’s unique and that very few players have, you’re not watching the games."
As far as if there's any possibilities of movement in the final hours: "Our approach has stayed the same. We try to be the guys who were willing to pull the trigger, as opposed to hemming and hawing, but the deals weren’t there. Everyone knows what they want to do at this point. It’s more a question of, does someone give up or does someone get extra excited? We’ll see."
