You should add they amnestied Haywood

Kaman is one of the most overrated players in the league IMHO. He puts up empty stats like no one else. His stat line is great but his impact on the game, not so much. I really hope the mavs dont over pay him, but knowing mark cuban, he probably did.

kind of had a feeling they were not pleased with haywood

I heard it's a 1 year deal for $8 mill. It's looking like the Mavs are going to just fill roster spots with short contracts and cheap players. They'll probably take a run at major FAs next off-season.

Makes sense. Who's available next summer?

The list depends on whether or not certain players pick up player options or sign extensions. Here are a few...

Josh Smith
Iguodala (player option)
Monta Ellis (player option)

and technically, D12 and Chris Paul could be free agents, but they are long shots since they'll probably sign extensions. But that probably wouldn't stop Cuban from trying.

I have a feeling Monta Ellis will opt out because he only makes $11 mill, and he's still in his prime. He could probably get a new deal worth a bit more.

Edit - also

David West
Kevin Martin

Decent pool of players, although there are no superstars that seem likely to be available. I feel bad for Dirk though.

If they kept the championship roster intact, they would've had a chance to compete for more, no? You have to feel bad for the guy because he only has about 3-4 years left. You don't want to see those years get wasted.
