DALLAS (AP) - Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says he doesn't expect to hear from the league over his suggestion that the Los Angeles Lakers could reduce their salary cap tax by dumping Kobe Bryant through the amnesty clause.
Cuban said before Sunday's game against the Lakers that he made it clear during a radio interview Friday that he was speaking hypothetically, and he was just trying to use an example to explain new restrictions in the labor agreement.
The Lakers called the remark inappropriate but didn't plan to pursue a complaint.
Cuban has cited the labor deal as a key reason for not bringing back key pieces of Dallas' 2011 championship team. He said the labor contract is difficult to explain and ``it's not like we're getting any help from the league.''
