Mark Cuban Shows His Shrewdness

Last summer, the Dallas Mavericks, after coming off their first NBA Championship in the history of the franchise, let their defensive anchor in Tyson Chandler walk to the New York Knicks in free agency. They also let point J.J. Barea go to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

This summer, the team has already lost Hall of Fame point guard, Jason Kidd, force off the bench, Jason Terry, and failed in their bid to bring Dallas product Deron Williams back home. As unnerving (and anger inducing) this may be for Mavs fans, is there a method to the madness of owner Mark Cuban? More after the jump...

According to SI.com's veteran NBA scribe, Sam Amick, Mark Cuban seems to be quite alright with the moves that his team has (or hasn't) made over the last two summers.

"It's better to miss out on the right player than to sign the wrong player," said Cuban.

While what Cubes said makes sense, it's a pretty tough sell to a fan base that's tasted what it feels like to be on the NBA mountaintop and are hungry for a chance to get back there, especially with an aging star in Dirk Nowitzki.
