Mavs Keeping A Spot Open For Deron Williams

Tyson Chandler is one of the Nets' top free agent targets, and it may be that he's available because the Dallas Mavericks would prefer to preserve cap space for Deron Williams next summer. Ken Berger adds to what ESPN wrote last week, saying that "the buzz among front-office executives Monday was that Dallas owner Mark Cuban would be in a position to sell Williams on taking less money to play in his hometown," assuming that Williams isn't satisfied with what Billy King is able to do over the next few months.

Berger doesn't seem to think much of the package the Nets can offer the Orlando Magic for Dwight Howard, writing that "Brook Lopez, first-round picks and absorbing Hedo Turkoglu's contract doesn't figure to be enough." But he says that a potential Howard deal is "a tantalizing scenario that could play out one way or another by the end of the week."
