Mark Cuban Put His Reality Show Ahead of the Maveicks, Consequently Lost Deron Williams

Deron Williams going to Dallas was much closer than we think. Apparently, Mark Cuban is the reason why Deron isn’t a Maverick. Cuban decided to put his reality TV show ahead of his NBA franchise. He went to a taping of “Shark Tank” rather than meet with Deron Williams, which rubbed D-Will the wrong way.

“Of course (Cuban’s absence had an effect),” Williams said. “My top four when I was coming out of high school was Illinois, Georgia Tech, Tennessee and Maryland. “Maryland told me they wanted me to come on a visit but Gary Williams wouldn’t be there. So I told them, ‘It’s okay. I’d rather not go.’ So that was that. It’s similar.”

“I think (Cuban) would have been able to answer a lot of the questions me and my agent have for him that really didn’t get answered that day pertaining to the future,” Williams said. “And I think if he was there he would have been able to answer those questions a little bit better.
