Vince Carter to Join Grizzlies

Vince Carter to Join Grizzlies

Tom Pennington/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Not to be lost in the madness that was LeBron James' announcement, Vince Carter is also reportedly on the move. Sources say the veteran shooter spent Friday finalizing a three-year deal to join the Memphis Grizzlies.

Sources say the contract is worth $12.2 million per year, luring Carter away from the Dallas Mavericks. Memphis had attempted to get the shooting guard via a trade in 2013 but ended with Tayshaun Price after Dallas backed out of the talks. The Grizzlies were also hoping that Mike Miller would re-sign, but the small forward informed the team that he would not return for next season.

The Mavs were hoping to re-sign Carter by utilizing the cap-room exception owrth $2.7 million per year. Reports say that Carter had told Dallas that he would return to the team for a two-year deal worth $8 million. However, that number would only be possible if the Houston Rockets chose to match the offer give to Chandler Parsons.

ESPN: Mavericks Sign Dirk Nowitzki to 3-Year Deal

ESPN: Mavericks Sign Dirk Nowitzki to 3-Year Deal

NBA via Dallas Mavericks(NEW YORK) -- The greatest player to suit up for the Dallas Mavericks isn't going anywhere as, according to ESPN, the team has agreed on a three-year contract with forward Dirk Nowitzki.

The deal is expected to be in the $30 million range. ESPN also is reporting that the new deal contains a player option that would allow Nowitzki to return to free agency in the summer of 2016.

Nowitzki took a below-market value deal due to his allegiance to the team, and the team's desire to use the saved money to go after free agents such as Carmelo Anthony and Luol Deng.

Nowitzki has been with the Mavericks for 16 seasons, making his NBA debut back in 1998.

When all is said and done, Nowitzki will likely suit up for the Mavericks for the duration of his 19-year career, something rarely seen in professional sports these days.

During his NBA career, the 36-year-old Nowitzki has averaged 22.5 points and 8.1 rebounds per game, and led the franchise to its only NBA Championship back in 2011.

Knicks Agree to Send Center Tyson Chandler to the Mavericks

Knicks Agree to Send Center Tyson Chandler to the Mavericks

NBA via New York Knicks(NEW YORK) -- Tyson Chandler is heading back to the Mavericks as the New York Knicks and Dallas have agreed on a six-player trade with Chandler as the center piece.

The trade would sent Chandler and point guard Raymond Felton to the Mavericks in exchange for point guards Jose Calderon and Shane Larkin along with guard Wayne Ellington, center Samuel Dalembert, and two second-round picks in Thursday night's draft.

Chandler played for the Mavericks during the 2010-2011 season -- the season they won their one and only NBA Championship.

"The journey to build this team for the upcoming season and beyond continues," Knicks executive Phil Jackson said in the announcement. "We have added players with this move that will fit right in to our system while maintaining future flexibility."

This move will help Dallas pursue top free agents such as Carmelo Anthony and Lebron James.

For the Knicks, it provides future flexibility, young players, and draft picks, which is something the Knicks haven't had much of in recent years.

Nowitzki Makes Plea for ‘Melo in Dallas

Nowitzki Makes Plea for ‘Melo in Dallas

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Carmelo Anthony, projected to be one of the top free agents if he chooses to opt out of his contract, may have a new suitor. Over the weekend, Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki made his pitch for Anthony.

"If Carmelo would really love to come here, we'd love to have him," Nowitzki said in a radio interview.

Despite being under contract for next season, Anthony is expected to opt out of the final season of his contract with the New York Knicks and test free agency.

Along with the Mavericks, the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets, and Miami Heat have also been rumored to have interest in the small forward. Still, Knicks president Phil Jackson has publicly stated his desire for Anthony to remain in New York.

"Listen, I think I've showed over my 16 years that I can play with anybody," Nowitzki said. "The only tough season I think we've had is when we had [Antawn] Jamison and Antoine Walker and myself who are all three kind of the same four-men, but other than that I think I've shown over my career that I can play with anybody. I'll adjust, whether I have to get out of the way or go to the corner more, post up, pass. I'll do whatever, really, that needs to be done out there to win or for this franchise to be a winner."

Anthony, who has said he would like to remain in New York, has stated on multiple occasions during the season that he planned to become a free agent this summer. Should he choose to re-sign with the Knicks, 'Melo could ink a maximum contract worth $129 million over five years. If Anthony signs with another team, his contract would only be able to be a maximum of $96 million over four seasons.

Dallas won 49 games last year and made the playoffs as the eight seed. The Mavericks were champions in 2011 and are projected to have more than $30 million in cap space.

The Knicks won just 37 games this year and are not expected to have enough cap space to create a contender for the 2014-15 season.
