Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is giving $100,000 to the city of Dallas to help offset a revenue decline. Cuban pledged in an e-mail exchange with theDallas Morning News regarding an ongoing budget debate at City Hall that he would make the contribution.

Cuban said in Saturday editions of the paper that he agrees with Mayor Tom Leppert that a tax increase should be avoided. "The mayor is correct," said Cuban. "Raising taxes is never a good thing. That said, recognizing that I have been blessed financially and that I probably benefit disproportionately from the great things Dallas has to offer, I think it's fair for someone in my position to be asked to voluntarily contribute more to the city."
