Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban admitted to Dan Patrick that the organization wanted to tank towards the end of the season. The Mavericks were eliminated from postseason contention in the final few weeks after a tough season. Dallas started off with the worst record in the Western Conference during the first month of the season before playing well and falling off late.
Cuban said the following about the end of the year.
“Once we were eliminated from the playoffs, we did everything we could to lose games.”
Dallas will look to rebound next season with young assets and a lottery draft pick.
