Mavericks Re-Sign Kyrie Irving for 3 Years, $126 Million: The Dallas Mavericks reached a three-year, $126 million deal to keep Kyrie Irving, avoiding the disaster of losing him for nothing after trading two starters and three draft picks to get him from the Brooklyn Nets in February. "Irving’s talent is universally acknowledged, but it comes with various serious reservations," writes Matt Moore for Action Network.

Before he played a game for Dallas I was giddy about the prospect of this happening.

Now I'm like the characters in It's a Wonderful Life who wept and prayed.

I'm like the two cops in It's A Wonderful Life wondering why George Bailey is running through a ramshackle abandoned house apparently out of his mind.

Starring Mark Cuban as George Bailey. It'll take an angel sent from heaven to prove him right.

And now the Mavericks have landed Grant Williams on a 4-year, $54MM three-team S&T that sends Reggie Bullock to San Antonio (I'll miss you, Winter Soldier).

Overall I really like what Nico has done this Summer. No idea if it'll work, but I can't see much realistic reason for complaint at this point.
