On his personal blog, Mark Cuban wrote that the Dallas Mavericks believed there was a clash of personalities between the organization and Dwight Howard, when the Mavericks pursued the center this offseason.

In Cuban's mind, there might be risk with Howard.

"We saw it as somewhat of a risk, but felt like because Dwight by all appearances and checking we did,  is a good guy and with our support systems we believed we could make it work," Cuban wrote. "If not, he was obviously a very trade-able asset.  But, as everyone knows, we didn't sign him."

Howard signed with the Houston Rockets.
