07:04 AM ET 06.20 | Yes, Mark Cuban is on the record in aggressively exploring opportunities to trade Dallas' No. 13 overall pick. Cuban is adamant, however, that the rumors about the Mavs being willing to part with the pick for minimal return if a team takes Shawn Marion's $9.32 million salary off their hands are inaccurate. Cuban insists that the Mavs have not had any talks with teams about trading Marion. "Not a single discussion," Cuban said via email to ESPNDallas.com. At the moment, the Mavs have $41.81 million worth of commitments and cap holds that would count against next season's cap, which is expected to be set at $58.5 million. That number could increase by six figures if they opt to keep Brandan Wright's Early Bird rights and/or the nonguaranteed contracts of Bernard James and Josh Akognon.

Marion should just redo his deal if he really wants to be in Dallas.

Heat in 7...




There's a reason why no road team has won a Game 7 since 1978.

Plus the Heat are a good team. They have 4 great quarters in them, and knowing its for all the marbles, you can bet that they are going to leave it all out there and put the beatdown on San Antonio. I am expecting a blowout, which is exactly why I won't be watching.

I can't bear to watch that slick haired graba**stic piece of amphibious **** Pat Riley celebrate another title.

You're ruining my vibe.

Heat it is! It will be a big time upset if they don't. They got the GOAT...

Half sarcasm and half true. Sarcasm is the GOAT part. That guy ain't no GOAT. GOATs don't get stopped by a 2nd year player or an old fat guy...

Actually 5.

But if you include the Confr Finals, the Home team is 17-2.

Will be interesting to watch with so many storylines...

Does Wade get going early? Do they sit Wade and go with that lineup of Lebron, Chalmers, Allen, Battier/Miller and Birdman more since they have blown SA out of the gym when they have??

I say Miami by 7 but it is tight for 3 quarters.

Somewhere in the 3rd, when Duncan and or Parker hit the bench, is when Miami dials up that magic lineup when Wade and Bosh are resting and Lebron goes to town...

I see LBJ with 30/12 and 8 tonight but I think Wade will score 20 himself.

There is no upset here if the Spurs win.

The Spurs are 4 time champs and are playing good basketball.

They exploit everything Miami hates, which is dribble n drive penetration, good Center play and the 3pt line.

Teams that can do that consistently, beat the Heat.

Key word : consistently.
