Report: Daryl Morey taunted Mark Cuban in text after signing Dwight Howard

Yes, it was a taunt. And a good one.

First, everyone around the league knows Cuban isn’t trading Dirk Nowitzki for anything. Second, while the Rockets could use a stretch four and all, not sure Nowitzki is the building block for the future they want to take on.

I love that Morey would do this. Not sure Cuban likes it as much as I did, but it strikes me as the kind of taunting/jokes my friends and I do with each other, although the stakes aren’t quite as high. I love the idea that there is some trash talk between front offices.

Not sure Cuban thought it was all that funny, though.
