In a Cyber Dust message to fans, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban issued a public statement Thursday morning, saying he had not heard from DeAndre Jordan since Tuesday night. Jordan backed out of his agreement with Dallas and signed with the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday.
Here’s the message, which was captured in a screen shot by Tim McMahon of ESPN.
Dear Mavs fans,
Never miss a local story.
There will be a time when I detail everything i know regarding the last 48 hours.
I don’t think the time is right to say anything beyond the facts that he never responded to me at all yesterday. Not once. To this minute I have not heard anything from him since Tuesday night.
More importantly, I specifically told Wes that I would not hold him to his commitment if he wanted to go elsewhere. I can’t print his exact response, but suffice it to say he is excited to play for our Mavs:) Wes Matthews is exactly the type of player we want in a Mavs uniform and our fans will love him
He will be in Dallas today so if you see him give him an MFFL welcome +letsgomavs !
