Just recently gifted an offer by Minnesota, Mark Cuban and Dallas management reject David Kahn's trade proposal of Al Jefferson for Erick Dampier and draft picks.
Mark Cuban is supposedly looking for a player who can impact his Mavericks similar to the way Pau Gasol made an impact on the Los Angeles Lakers when he was traded there three seasons ago.
The player Cuban is targeting is Chris Paul, but Paul's unique combination of playmaking and speed are already present in Jason Kidd and Rodrigue Beaubois, respectively.
What this team lacks is a true low post presence, a player who can get baskets with minimal effort.
This can be found in a player such as Pau Gasol.
Or the next best thing—Al Jefferson.
