Mark Cuban has heard so many preposterous trade rumors that he laughs at a lot of them.
The Kevin Love-to-Dallas speculation fell into that category.

“I know what we’re talking about and not talking about,” Cuban said. “We take pride in the fact that you never read about our deals before they happen. So if you read about them, you know what that means. I don’t know if we got the Beach Boys [who Love’s uncle Mike is a member of] booked.”

The Mavericks are ridiculously shy on tradable assets to obtain a player of Love’s talents. So that makes it impossible to create any scenario that would get them in the running.
