Report: Mavs Freeing Up Cap Space To Pursue Deron
Tyson Chandler's hunch that he'll be wearing a new uniform soon could prove to be true. And it may have nothing to do with Chandler and everything to do with Deron Williams.
With serious interest registered from the Nets, Golden State, Houston and Sacramento, four teams with cap space and flexibility, the man who served as the glue for the Mavericks' 2011 NBA title could be slipping away -- but for reasons that go well beyond the uncertain free-agent market for Chandler himself.
The Mavs are in no rush to retain Chandler on a max offer, largely because they want to maintain flexibility for next summer's free-agent class -- which just happens to include Dallas' own Williams.
