Mavs’ Don’t Consider Nerlens Noel A Hard Worker

Published

It doesn’t seem that center Nerlens Noel is making a good impression on his current team, the Dallas Mavericks.

In his 2nd season with the team, Noel had an opportunity to land a major role with the team as they rebuilt for the future but a nagging thumb injury and apparently a lack of work ethic have contributed to his limited minutes on the floor.

The Mavericks reportedly view Noel as someone who is not a hard worker, according to Newy Scruggs for The Dallas Morning News.

My sources tell me that Nerlens Noel is not known as a hard worker.

I’m told he doesn’t have a sense of hard play and that’s not going to fly with a head coach like Rick Carlisle who had to cut his teeth as a NBA player.

Until Noel shows a better work ethic other players will get minutes.

Noel ended up signing a one-year, $4.1 million contract in late August with the Mavericks after testing the market as a restricted free agent looking for a lucrative deal.

Noel is only averaging a career-low 12.5 minutes in 18 games played this year.

Not only does Noel risk not stating in Dallas, he also risks hauling in a big contract in free agency should this trend continue.

A three-team trade that would have sent Jimmy Butler from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Miami Heat is reportedly off for now.

According to The Athletic’s Tim Cato, the three-team trade between the 76ers, Heat, and Dallas Mavericks sending Butler down to Miami is off, and the Heat must now find a team other than Dallas to complete the deal.

Dallas had agreed to be the third team in the trade, with the understanding that they would get Derrick Jones Jr., but the Heat instead wanted to ship Goran Dragic to Dallas.

Dallas eventually backed off the deal saying that absorbing his deal would be too much, according to the New York Times’ Marc Stein.

Mavericks Planning to Make Offer to Tobias Harris

Published

on

The Dallas Mavericks are planning to make a contract offer to Tobias Harris once free agency kicks off, according to Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News.

Although the Mavs are looking to be aggressive in the free agent market with over $28 million in cap space available, they won’t be throwing a ton of money around, as they are planning to make a less-than max offer to Harris.

The Mavericks expect the Sixers to flex their financial muscle to keep Harris in Philadelphia.
