I assume they'll just find some way to work around it. But this may force the Mavs to trade some other player that they don't want to trade. Or maybe it'll be a simpler fix. Either way, I'm sure the Mavs are pissed.

He won't block the deal. They'll replace him with someone else. The trade will go through, and I'd say that in either case, George won't be around the Mavs much longer.

Apparently they might sign and trade KVH.

If Mavs can't work their way around this trade, then we can pretty much say that George saved the Mavs from being split apart.

I'd do the same thing.

Not a bad move by him, though. He will likely get bought out, and get to sign with the team that he wants. He gets two paydays, and he doesn't have to play on a terrible Nets team going nowhere.

Cuban paid George under the table to exercise it, so Donnie doesnt do the trade.

j/k of course

Is George insane?

If he ruins this deal for the Mavericks, every citizen of Dallas is going to kill this guy. What is wrong with him? He's a free agent at years end anyway.... If the trade doesn't happen, Kidd will "accidentally" throw a pass against the Mavs right into George's face. Whoops!!!!

As it turns out, Gregg Popovich vetoed the trade so it didn't go through.

Damn you, Pop!!!!!

Just took a quick look at Dallas' salaries, I think they can just sub George out for Trenton Hassell...if the Nets are willing to take on the final 3 years of his contract.

I smell a conspiracy...

You don't F*ck with Cuban.... If George wanted out ... this is his ticket.
He will get waived by NJ.

Cuban should find another scrub.... and then make George sit on the
bench the rmainder of the season.

F*ck Devean George.

Nets aren't going to do that. That's an extra $9 million on the books.

Why don't the Nets just give George assurances that he'll be bought out. Then he can go whereever he wants and get double salary, even rejoining Mavs.
