According to Marc Stein, Jermaine O’Neal will sign with the Mavericks, Celtics or Nuggets in the upcoming days.â†µ
“Those are my favorites,” O’Neal told ESPN.com “Those are teams that are going to compete [for a championship] next year.”â†µ
Would this end the Mavericks' pursuit of Brendan Haywood? I don’t think so. O'Neal would be a be perfectly serviceable option as a backup if they end up re-signing him. If they expect 30-plus minutes from him, it’s going to get ugly.
