Mavericks GM handcuffs himself to Harrison Barnes, avoids another DeAndre Jordan situation (photo)
The Mavericks were not amused about DeAndre Jordan reneging on his pledge to sign with Dallas last summer.
They’re having a little more fun about it now with Harrison Barnes.
Mavericks owner Mark Cuban:
Dallas either misplayed this joke -- Jordan changed his mind during the moratorium, before he could sign; Rick Carlisle is holding up a signed deal after the moratorium ended -- or Barnes has been cuffed to Donnie Nelson for a long time.
Either way, congratulations to the Mavericks for holding off a last-ditch effort by the Warriors who seemed so desperate to flip Barnes back to them and cast off Kevin Durant.
