There will not be a Rodrigue Beaubois reunion with the Dallas Mavericks this season. Beaubois has declined the Mavs' invitation to return to Dallas, according to a league source. The 2009 first-round pick has opted to return to Europe instead of accepting the Mavs' offer of a three-year partially guaranteed deal for the veterans minimum salary. ESPN.com
The Mavs hoped to bring Beaubois, who played in France the past three seasons, to training camp to compete with summer league star Jonathan Gibson for a regular-season roster spot. Gibson, 28, who averaged 42 points per game in China last season and led the Mavs' Las Vegas summer team in scoring, recently signed a three-year minimum deal that features a fully guaranteed salary in the first season.

The Mavericks have signed free agent forward Quincy Acy. Acy (6-7, 240) holds career averages of 4.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and 15.3 minutes per game in 219 games (51 starts) with Toronto, Sacramento and New York. He averaged 5.2 points, 3.2 rebounds and 14.8 minutes per game in 59 games (29 starts) with the Kings last season. InsideHoops

Siohvaughn Funches-Wade may be trying to squeeze an extra buck out of her $5 million divorce settlement from Chicago Bulls star Dwyane Wade, but she "loathed money" as their marriage fell apart, she says. In an emotionally raw autobiography published late last month, the basketball player's former high school sweetheart admits she became "an arrogant diva" to try to fit in with the NBA wives club, repeats allegations made in court during a divorce battle that Wade beat her, and claims an unnamed mistress of Wade's called her at 3 a.m. to boast about her trysts with Wade.
