Mavs owner Mark Cuban said that Wesley Matthews is “on a mission” and is starting to get his athleticism back.
“Wes in particular, if you watch him play, I don’t think he was even able to dunk the ball at 6-5 until towards the end of the season,” said Cuban. “Now he’s doing 45-inch-plus box jumps and dunking with either hand, both hands, one foot, two feet. The guy is on a mission. He’s in the gym every day with Dwight [Powell] and Justin [Anderson] and our other young guys who are starting to filter in.” It all makes sense and Matthews is all but certain to take a step forward this season.
