Dwight HowardAccording to multiple sources, within inner NBA Circles GM’s have been discussing the possibility of the Mark Cuban’s Dallas Mavericks signing both Deron Williams and Dwight Howard this off season.

Dwight Howard has expressed publicly that the Maverick’s are one of the teams that he would like to play for if the Orlando Magic were to trade him during the season. With the trade deadline approaching, this seems more and more unlikely.

The Mavericks have plenty of cap room next season as Jason Terry, Lamar Odom, Jason Kidd, Brian Cardinal, Delonte West, and Brandon Wright are in the final year of their contracts. Additionally, Vince Carter does not count.

Shedding these contracts will save the Mavericks about $31 million dollars. Signing both Howard, Williams, 2012 draft picks, and enough players to fill out a roster will surely put the Maverick over the cap, but billionaire Mark Cuban hasn’t seemed to let this bother him in the past.

If these NBA rumors are true, look for the Mavericks to make a huge splash in free agency. Signing Howard and Williams would certainly make the Mavericks favorites to win the NBA Championship in 2012; who wouldn’t love a Heat Mavericks rematch?
