DALLAS -- Two months after missing out on free-agent target Deron Williams, the Dallas Mavericks have finally introduced their new veteran players.

Elton Brand, who the Mavs got on a waiver claim from Philadelphia, and free agent signees O.J. Mayo and Chris Kaman were among the five additions making their first Dallas appearances Monday with owner Mark Cuban. Darren Collison and Dahntay Jones came in a trade from Indiana and were also there.

After creating salary-cap flexibility for free agency, the Mavericks were unable to persuade Williams to come home to play. He stayed with the Nets for their move to Brooklyn.

Cuban said that the best deals are sometimes the ones that aren't made, and he thinks that's what happened this summer.
