05:20 PM ET 06.28 | Los Angeles Lakers star Dwight Howard is technically not a free agent yet, so teams and opposing players aren't supposed to speak to him about playing for their respective franchise as the NBA considers it tampering. Dirk Nowitzki didn't give a crap. The face of the Dallas Mavericks, risking a team fine, has said that he's already spoken to Dwight and is attempting to lure the big man to Dallas. While the NBA has already fined the Sacramento Kings, Houston Rockets and Atlanta Hawks for tampering it's unlikely Dirk and the Mavs should see any punishment from this. Not to mention, even if they did, it would be a fine Mavericks owner Mark Cuban would happily pay if Dirk's advances brought Dwight to the Big D.

"Dirk Nowitzki didn't give a crap"...

Either this is nonsense or they're talking about David West manhandling Dirk's face...

Would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for that conversation.

Even if they get Howard, they badly need a starting PG. They drafted a PG from FL, but that's not gonna cut it. They need a solid PG to run their offense.
