When owner Mark Cuban begins meeting with free agents on
Thursday, one of the selling points he’ll make will be that the
possibility exists of playing multiple games per season at Cowboys Stadium, an
NBA source says.
It will be another chip that the Mavericks can push into the
pot, although it remains to be seen if they can sway LeBron James, Dwyane Wade,
Chris Bosh, Joe Johnson or somebody else to relocate to Dallas.
The NBA All-Star Game was played at the stadium in February
and the venue was met with rave reviews by most of the players. James, in
particular, is a huge Cowboys fan and while the odds are stacked heavily
against him coming to Dallas, any extra incentive that the Mavericks can supply
is like gold.
Meanwhile, president Donnie Nelson said a few minutes ago
that he has a plane reservation to Germany. However, he’s not sure he’ll
be on that plane yet because there seems to be a chance Dirk Nowitzki might be
coming across the pond later this week.
Nelson has a media session set for Wednesday in advance of
free-agency starting at 11:01 p.m.
