The fact that the Mavericks are in as much of a rebuilding mode as they’ve been with Mark Cuban at the helm, may actually help in their pursuit of Greg Oden.
The Mavericks are reportedly one of five teams in the running for Oden, alongside the Kings, Pelicans, Spurs and Heat. While chances of a championship will likely be higher with the Spurs or Heat, Oden’s agent, Bill Duffy, told NBA.com on Friday that it might be better for the center to go to a team without such high expectations.
“We’ve looked at all the scenarios,” Duffy said. “There might be less pressure if he tries this with a team that’s rebuilding. Then again, the quality of the medical staff will matter. Maybe a winning team has chemistry that’s good or his role would be clearly defined.”
