We're on the eve of the trade deadline, but coach Rick Carlisle said his Mavs are focused on the Nets, not any possible moves that may happen within these final deadline hours. Carlisle had some fun joking about the insanity that comes with this time:
"I don’t think I’m getting traded," Carlisle quipped. As far as his players, well, they'll be fine, too.
"We have a veteran team. These guys have been down this road, seen their names. Look at (Jason) Kidd last year. That was a zoo. It was all the talk for three straight weeks. I just think our guys, we have no rookies, so they've seen and heard it all. I don’t see the big distraction everyone wants to see there. But that’s just me, I don’t know. You ask the players you may get a different reaction."
