"We're not putting a timetable on it," Cuban said Friday on KTCK-AM 1310. "Like I told Wes, if he opens...

Straight from the Mad Men era, in 1960, singer Brenda Lee said the words DeAndre Jordan carried inside himself these past few weeks: What is free agency, in any sport, other than a very public revelation of a basic emotional reality?

Landing Monta Ellis puts Pacers back in title-chasing pack

Hit us up on Twitter @CrossoverNBA The 2015 NBA free agent pool was a little polluted or at worst, someone tinkled in the deep end and didn’t tell anyone.

Mavericks lose Tyson Chandler as they scramble for help

DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks love Tyson Chandler now. Just as they loved him in 2011.  And they've lost him now, thanks to Phoenix giving him a four-year deal worth $52 million, in a breakup reminiscent of when they lost the best center in franchise history four years ago.  Chandler was a standout in his most recent go-around in Dallas (again), in 2014-15 giving the Mavs 11.5...
