DALLAS (AP) - Mavericks owner Mark Cuban gave free agent guard Wesley Matthews an out after accepting the reality that DeAndre Jordan was spurning Dallas to re-sign with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Matthews turned him down, deciding to stand by his agreement to sign with a franchise that could be reeling for a long time over Jordan's stunning reversal.

Cuban wrote in a message to fans that Matthews was "exactly the type of player we want in a Mavs uniform."

Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said Cuban alone would address free agency with reporters. The owner wasn't available Thursday, the first day free agent players could sign contracts.

Instead of celebrating the biggest free agent pickup in franchise history, the Mavericks are in their fourth straight summer of missing on a big-name target.
