Earlier this season, the Dallas Mavericks released veteran Derek Fisher, as the player was having a tough time away from his family. Only a couple of days ago, Fisher returned to the NBA, signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder, something that Mavs owner Mark Cuban was not a fan of.

According to, Cuban said:

“Look, I understand, completely,” Cuban said Tuesday prior to the Mavs’ home game against Milwaukee. “From the time Derek was here to him signing with OKC, his kids are older, so they can deal with things better. So I understand him having more comfort in being away from them.”

The outspoken owner was clearly sarcastic when making the statement, as he is not happy with how Fisher handled the whole situation.
