Vernon Bryant/The Dallas Morning News

Former Dallas Cowboys players Miles Austin and Tony Romo were spotted courtside during the Mavs-Pistons game Wednesday night.

While playing for the Cowboys from 2006 until 2013, Austin was a favorite target for Romo. After leaving Dallas, Austin played for one season in Cleveland and another with the Eagles before retiring after the 2015 season.

Romo, of course retired earlier this year and is wrapping up his first year as a broadcaster for CBS Sports. He was recently honored by SI as the Media Person of the Year.

The former quarterback is a big basketball fan and was honored by the Mavs during their final regular season game earlier this year where Romo got to have some fun during the shootaround.

Wednesday night, the Dallas Mavericks soundly defeated the Detroit Pistons 110-93 behind Harrison Barnes' 25 points and rookie Dennis Smith Jr's 15 points.

Tony Romo is wearing his familiar No. 9, but it's a much different uniform than we're used to seeing. The former Cowboys quarterback will be on the bench Tuesday with the Dallas Mavericks.
Tony Romo couldn't say no when Dirk Nowitzki asked the retiring Dallas Cowboys quarterback to join the Mavericks as an honorary teammate for a day.
The Texas Legislature honored retiring Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo Wednesday, praising his character and humble roots almost as much as his football accomplishments. Romo appeared Wednesday before the Texas House and swung the speaker's gavel -- lawmakers paused their work day to take photos with him. One state representative wore a Romo jersey and another donned a Cowboys helmet. Romo was also appearing before the state Senate.
