Charlie Villanueva says he would 'love to come back' to Dallas

BY foxsports • June 19, 2015

Before the start of the 2014-15 season, most thought Charlie Villanueva's time in the NBA had passed. 

The Mavericks thought otherwise, and took a gamble on the veteran forward. Villanueva responded by giving the Mavericks good minutes, and by knocking down 37.6 percent of his attempts from behind the arc.

Villanueva will be a free agent this offseason, and it's unclear whether the Mavericks will want him back. Villanueva, though, sounds open to the idea.

"I would love to come back,” Villanueva said during his exit interview after the Mavs’ season ended. “It felt like this organization gave me an opportunity, gave me a chance, took a chance on me. I'm a loyal and I would love to be back, but that's not my decision. Hopefully management and my agent can work something out.”

“I like my role,” Villanueva said. “I embraced it, I accepted it. I've been in the league for 10 years and been coached by nine different coaches. I would love to experience the same coach again next year, but we'll see."
