Report: Mavs, ex-Magic guard Nelson to talk


Report: Mavs to meet with Nelson — Back in the 2008-09 season, then-Orlando Magic stars Jameer Nelson and Rashard Lewis joined Dwight Howard as members of the Eastern Conference All-Star team. Is there a chance that Nelson and Lewis, who haven’t been teammates since 2010-11, could be reunited in Dallas?’s Marc Stein writes that the Mavs plan to chat with Nelson about joining their squad come Thursday: The Dallas Mavericks will host free agent Jameer Nelson on a recruiting visit Thursday, as part of ongoing negotiations with the former Orlando Magic point guard, according to sources close to the situation. Sources told that the Mavericks are bringing Nelson to town in hopes of finally closing a deal with him, as Dallas continues to pursue a veteran point guard to help fill the void created by Jose Calderon‘s exit in June. The Mavericks had to part with Calderon to reacquire center Tyson Chandler in a trade with the New York Knicks. Since then, they have been chasing Nelson and fellow veteran Mo Williams to give coach Rick Carlisle another trusted ballhandler.
