Now, the Mavericks hope that an injection of young blood will help get them over the hump.

“I mean, it gets us younger,” Mavs owner Mark Cuban said while watching the team’s summer-league squad last month in Las Vegas. “The good news about all the experience we had is it really allowed us to modify and give the Spurs a run for their money last year. The bad news is that we had to restrict minutes, and so restricted minutes was a bigger challenge. (Parsons) is a guy that we can keep out there a lot longer, whereas with Vince (Carter) and with ‘Trix (Shawn Marion) and Dirk (Nowitzki) we really had to balance minutes.”
