The Dallas Mavericks are familiar with heartbreak and disappointment. They experienced it first hand last summer when they thought they had free agent center DeAndre Jordan signed, sealed and delivered. Not only did he back out of the agreement with the Mavericks, but he spent the night before free agency ended with the Clippers with whom he ended up signing.

In a show of self-awareness and self-deprecation, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban posted a photo with the team’s newest free agent addition in Harrison Barnes.

They certainly aren’t going to let this one escape and it looks like he’s alright with that. It’s nice to see the team show some humor after its fans were so upset about the “unsigning.” Now the Mavericks will have to see if Harrison Barnes plays better than he did in the 2016 playoffs because if that’s the player they’re getting then they might be in trouble.
