Sources: Doubtful Terry Receives Extension
Sources with knowledge of the Mavs’ thinking, though, have left little doubt that (Jason) Terry will not receive the contract extension he’s been publicly angling for.
It’s the same situation as (Tyson) Chandler’s. The Mavs want to keep both vets … but they want salary-cap space for the summer of 2012 more. Dallas has never had cap space in the Mark Cuban era and team sources have made it clear that finding another cornerstone player to pair with Dirk Nowitzki — who turned 33 in June — is the franchise’s No. 1 priority in the wake of its championship breakthrough.
