DALLAS, TX–Today, the Dallas Mavericks officially opened the doors to their new practice facility in the Design District (1530 Inspiration Drive next to Community Brewery), across the street from the American Airlines Center. Complete with two practice courts, the facility is still a work in progress, but provides the Mavs and their staff some much needed extra space while gearing up for the start of the 2016-17 NBA Regular Season that kicks off on the road against the Indiana Pacers on October 26. 

“We haven’t had this kind of space,” Rick Carlisle said. “We made it work over at the AAC and it’s been fine, but this is quantum leap.”

Mavs owner Mark Cuban stressed to the media that the new practice courts were just the beginning of a long-term plan for the $70 million, 14-acre investment. The team used today’s practice as a trial run to see how the logistics of the new facility would work. They’ll be back at the AAC tomorrow before deciding how the new space with be used in conjunction with the old one going forward.
