Mark Cuban: Mavs Better off without Howard

The Dallas Mavericks will be better off in the immediate future because they missed out on Dwight Howard, allowing them to sign several other free agents, owner Mark Cuban said.
“I think we’ve put ourselves in a spot where we’re in a better spot than we were at if we got just the one max-out deal,” Cuban told ESPNDallas.com during the Mavs’ summer league game Wednesday night. “I think it’d be better shorter and longer term. I don’t want to make that sound the wrong way. I think we’ll be better this year because we added five good players or more.”
Cuban made similar comments last summer, when point guard Deron Williams decided to re-sign with the Brooklyn Nets after being recruited by the Mavs. Dallas went 41-41 in 2012-13 with a roster made up primarily of additions on one-year deals, ending the franchise’s 12-year playoff streak.
