Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban told Fox Sports and DallasBasketball.com and a select handful of other local media outlets via e-mail on Friday at 4:09 p.m. that the team has been notified that they are out of the running for Dwight Howard.
“Got word we are out of the DH sweepstakes,” Cuban wrote. “We gave it a shot and it didn’t work out. … It was truly an experience.”
And speaking of the other suitors?Cuban also said he had no knowledge of the free agent center’s decision on a destination.”I have no idea what team he is going to,” Cuban wrote in the e-mail. “They wouldn’t tell me. … So it’s on to plan B.”
Time to get back to work. The Mavs are back open for business.
