Cuban Planning a New Mavs' Practice Facility

The Mavs are moving.

Not up in the standings. Not toward a coveted a free agent. But, instead, to a new practice facility.

According to the Dallas Business Journal, owner Mark Cuban has purchased a 10-acre tract of land along Interstate 35 in Dallas’ Design District for the purpose of building a new team headquarters. The site is just across the highway from American Airlines Center and would, in theory, be traveled via a short walk.

Since moving into AAC in the early 2000s, the Mavs have practiced in the bottom-floor gym. But Cuban has said he desires a state-of-the-art practice facility, training center and team offices. The DBJ estimated the purchase of land between $35-45 million.

It doesn’t exactly come with the same hype as Jerry Jones building The Star facility for the Cowboys in Frisco, but Cuban – one way or another – is at least attempting to shove his Mavs back into contention in the NBA.
