The Mavericks are tanking.

Solid veteran shooting guard Wesley Matthews is unlikely to remain an impediment.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:

This probably the pushes the 31-year-old with major injury history even further toward exercising his $18,622,514 player option for next season. Financially, opting in was already clearly the right move, though Matthews could choose to join a better team. But to do so would could require taking an even larger pay cut now.
