Source: Mavs Consider Bid for Luis Scola
As of Saturday night, a Mavericks source said the franchise is leaning strongly toward submitting a bid on Sunday for amnestied former Rockets forward Luis Scola.
The source added, however, that the Mavericks expect other teams’ bids to be higher than the one they would submit.
Unlike Elton Brand, whom the Mavericks claimed Friday with a bid of $2.1 million on his one-year contract, Scola bidders would have to bid at least $3.3 million for the 2012-13 season and at least $10 million spread over three years. That would cover the non-guaranteed portion of Scola’s contract, as required under the amnesty rules.
