NBA Trade Rumors: Mark Cuban Not Looking Trade, Will Listen To Offers

The defending NBA champion Dallas Mavericks are currently sitting with the fourth best record in the Western Conference, and even though they are not doing as well as last year the Mavericks are not likely to make any trades.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said as much, but did add the caveat that he would listen to offers:

Cuban always says the Mavs will be "opportunistic" in the trade market. But unlike a couple of years ago, when he acknowledged that the Mavs wanted to make a major move weeks before shipping Josh Howard to Washington in a blockbuster deal, the Mavs' front office isn't planning to be aggressive over the next few weeks.

"We're not looking to change unless someone makes us an offer we can't refuse," Cuban said. "We're not looking to shake anything up. We think we've got a good team that hasn't played its best basketball yet."

The Mavericks are not looking to make a move because they made it a priority to have a lot of cap space this off season so that they could be in the running for free agents like Deron Williams or Dwight Howard and be able to sign them to a max contract.
