LAS VEGAS -- The consensus opinion among NBA coaches and executives surveyed during the Las Vegas Summer League is that the Dallas Mavericks made a wise move to give Harrison Barnes a maximum contract, given the circumstances.At 24 years old, Barnes is a proven, quality, versatile starter who has yet to hit his prime. Hes expected to help the Mavs compete for a playoff berth during Dirk Nowitzkis twilight and be part of Dallas core after the face of the franchise rides off into the sunset. Sure, $94 million is a lot to give a good role player, but that was market value for Barnes, and the Mavs will still have the salary cap space necessary to be aggressive bidders again next summer.After letting Chandler Parsons leave, the Mavs are much better off with Barnes than without him. However, league sources gave mixed reviews regarding the Mavs optimistic vision for Barnes growth into a go-to guy after he averaged career highs of 11.7 points and 1.8 assists per game in a complementary role for the Golden State Warriors last season.Youre going to see a lot more to his game than youve seen in the past, Mavs owner Mark Cuban said. I think he can do a lot more than hes been asked to do, and thats what we expect to see. ... Maybe not first year, but I think hes going to grow into [the role of go-to guy]. Just because a guy hasnt done things doesnt mean he cant do it.Asked about Barnes offensive potential, one skeptical Western Conference executive said: At best a third option.The biggest issue with Barnes is that he hasnt demonstrated the ability to make plays off the dribble, in isolation or as a pick-and-roll ball handler, in four NBA seasons. He is a more explosive athlete than Parsons, but Barnes doubters say he isnt nearly as fluid and lacks the feel for the game of the players hes replacing in the Mavs lineup.Hes been a championship-level system player for Golden State for several years, and hes coming into a situation where were going to need him to be more of a primary guy, coach Rick Carlisle said. Its going to take time to develop the mentality, make sure were getting him in the right situations to do it, but he has the ability and hes a worker. Im confident that hell get there.Mavs pull off coup with BogutA few years after Dwight Howard spurned the Mavs to sign with the Rockets, a starting center picked Dallas over Houston. The Warriors allowed Andrew Bogut to choose between the Mavs and Rockets as his trade destination, according to league sources.The Rockets were willing to make the same trade as the Mavs to get Bogut, which was essentially to take a future second-round pick along with the veteran big man in a salary-dump deal that helped give Golden State the cap space required to sign Kevin Durant.A source said the Philadelphia 76ers also showed heavy interest in trading for Bogut but were never seriously considered by the Warriors, who wanted to send the center to a playoff-caliber team as a token of their appreciation for his contributions the past four seasons.Acquiring Bogut in a contract year is widely considered a coup for the Mavs. He can provide the Mavs everything that Zaza Pachulia did last season but is much more mobile and athletic.Hes a top-five center as a defender without question, Carlisle said. Hes a premier rim protector, hes one of the best centers at taking charges, and he really understands the game. Offensively, were going to look to get him involved. Hell be a guy we look to throw to on the inside some, and we know hes a great passer and a great roller.Powell will have an increased presenceDwight Powells days as a fringe rotation player should be done. The Mavs didnt give the 24-year-old Powell a four-year, $37 million deal to have his primary role be shooting arrows on the bench to celebrate Wesley Matthews 3-pointers, as it often was late in the season, with Powell getting a DNP-CD in 10 of 27 games after the All-Star break.I expect him to be a rotation player, Carlisle said. The last two years weve been working toward this period where we could get him signed to a longer-term deal and integrate him to our everyday rotation. ... Hes a combination 4/5. I see him playing both positions. Time will tell how much at each, but I do believe there are going to be a lot of situations where hell play both positions in the same game.Powell might have taken a discount to stay in Dallas. A league source said the Brooklyn Nets were interested in Powell and pondering making a four-year, $48 million offer to the restricted free agent.Youth movementThe Mavs are committed to a youth movement as they fill out their roster. Their minimum-salary slots have primarily gone to veterans in the past, but theyve made a philosophical shift to give those roster spots to developmental prospects.One example is 25-year-old power forward Quincy Acy, who agreed to a two-year minimum deal with Dallas on Thursday.Cuban expects the Mavs to have as many as four rookies on the roster, all of whom will be signed to three-year deals for the minimum or close to it. Second-round center A.J. Hammons and 23-year-old Argentinian wing Nicolas Brussino have guaranteed deals. Summer league star Jonathan Gibson and undrafted forward Dorian Finney-Smith have agreed to three-year deals with some guaranteed money.Gibson has lit it up in Vegas, averaging 20 points per game while shooting 53.6 percent from the floor and 46.4 percent from 3-point range. He wouldnt exactly be a traditional NBA rookie as a 29-year-old who has played in Israel, Turkey, Italy, Iran and China. The Mavs see Gibson, who averaged 42 points per game in China last season, as potentially a poor mans Jason Terry.Finney-Smith has struggled offensively in the summer league, getting only two buckets in the first four games, but Dallas considers him a prospect because of his defense. At 6-foot-8, 220 pounds with a 7-foot wingspan and a 35?-inch vertical jump, Finney-Smith has the size and athleticism to defend multiple positions, similar to ex-Maverick Al-Farouq Aminu.

ATLANTA -- Just for fun, Paul Johnson offered a reminder of his glistening coaching record at Georgia Southern.Then he quickly added But thats all history now.Johnsons time at Georgia Southern, including back-to-back I-AA national championships, looks better than ever these days as he tries to end his Georgia Tech teams sudden two-year slump.Georgia Tech (3-3) will try to end a three-game losing streak when its takes a break from its Atlantic Coast Conference schedule to play Georgia Southern (3-2) on Saturday.Since the start of last season, the Yellow Jackets are 6-12 overall and a distressing 2-10 in ACC games. Last weeks last-second 37-34 loss at Pittsburgh , dropped Georgia Tech to 1/3 in the conference this season.Johnson has offered reminders that the Yellow Jackets first two losses came to Top 25 teams Clemson and Miami and there is still time to salvage a winning season. Even so, the visit from Georgia Southern prompted memories of his time with the Eagles as an assistant under Erk Russell and coach when losing streaks were extremely rare.Ive got really fond memories of the place, Johnson said Tuesday of Georgia Southern. When I was there we were very successful. I was looking at it today, I think my last two years there as offensive coordinator and the five years as coach we were 26-4 and 62-10, so we won a lot of games.Johnson was Georgia Southerns coach from 1997-2001. The Eagles won five straight Southern Conference championships and won national titles in 1999 and 2000.The Eagles have lost two straight games under first-year coach Tyson Summers, including a last-second loss to Arkansas State last week.---Here are some things to know about Georgia Southerns visit to Georgia Tech:POSSIBLE MILESTONE: A win over Georgia Tech would be a highhlight for the Eagles, who began their transition to the Sun Belt and FBS in 2013 and beat Bowling Green in the GoDaddy Bowl last year.dddddddddddd Following the bowl win, coach Willie Fritz left Georgia Southern to take over the Tulane program. A win obviously versus a Power 5 team and probably more importantly a team thats in our state is an important piece, Summers said. If we can find a way to win this one and be 4-2, itll be a step to getting us back on track.PEACHY TRIO: This will be the second of three games against state rivals for Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets beat Mercer 35-10 on Sept. 10 and close their regular season at Georgia on Nov. 26.MATTHEW TIME: The Eagles had an extra three days since their loss to Arkansas State on Oct. 5, but Hurricane Matthew interrupted plans for extra practice for Georgia Tech. We were trying to take care of our families and our community, Summers said. We tried to have a little bit more time with our staff but really havent been able to do it with our players like you would think.BIG SCARE: Georgia Tech survived a late scare to beat Georgia Southern 42-38 in 2014. The Eagles rallied from a 35-10 deficit to lead 38-35. I think we kind of felt like it was over at halftime, and to their credit they came back with guns blazing, Johnson said. Weve got to be ready to play one of our better games. The two option offenses combined for 1,064 yards in the 2014 game.GEORGIA SOUTHERN COACHING CONNECTION II: Georgia Tech offensive line coach Mike Sewak was Georgia Southerns coach from 2002-05.
