Perot Jr. Wants Someone Else Running Dallas Mavs

    Mark Cuban is defending his decade as majority owner of the Dallas Mavericks and rejects calls by minority owner Ross Perot Jr. that a court-appointed receiver be named to run the NBA team.

    Cuban on Tuesday, in a court filing, responded to a May lawsuit filed by Perot that alleged the Mavs were insolvent or in imminent danger of insolvency.

    Perot's lawsuit puts his Hillwood Investment Properties III Ltd. against Cuban-controlled Radical Mavericks Management LLC. Perot in 2000 sold his majority stake in the team to Cuban, but still holds 5 percent.

    Cuban maintains Perot is wrongly seeking money to offset some $100 million in losses on the Victory Park real estate development.

    Perot spokesman Eddie Reeves said his boss had no comment on Cuban's filing.
