02:10 PM ET 06.29 | Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has something up his sleeves. Cuban says the Mavericks have meetings in Los Angeles with a few "unnamed players." You can immediately connect soon-to-be free agents Dwight Howard and Chris Paul to the team, especially since the two stars have been called the Mavericks' top priorities this offseason. It is unlikely that the Mavericks would be able to land both players, but signing Howard is becoming more and more realistic by the day. Teaming up Howard and Dirk Nowitzki in the front court would be incredible for Dallas and it would also mean that the Mavericks would be Howard's team in a few years.

Cuban has made free agents a top priority in the past. I'll need to see it happen.

Has Cuban star power jumped the shark? He's had a hard time signing coveted free agents in the past couple of years.

MWP and Chris Duhon?

CP3 is off the table, and if Howard decides to go to the Rockets or stay with LA, what exactly are Cuban's next moves? he said this summer wasn't about "1 year" deals but long-term deals. Surely he can't be thinking about building a team around Ellis or Jennings or Al Jefferson.

Dwight is the #1 choice w/ Big Al as the #2. Jennings is not part of the equation and Ellis could still be part of the team w/ Dwight on board...

Wow. Cuban really messed this team up.

Nash and Howard to Dallas?
