Mark Cuban insists he knows what the Dallas Mavericks' problem is

The Dallas Mavericks are enduring a nightmare start to the NBA season as they sit rock-bottom of the Western Conference with a record of 2-11.

After adding Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut from the record-setting 73-win Golden State Warriors, many believed that as a perennial playoff team, they would only get stronger.

However, they have looked very poor in the early going and have been beaten handsomely on several occasions.

Dirk Nowitzki has been injured with a sore Achilles and for their latest 91-96 loss to the San Antonio Spurs, the Mavs were without Deron Williams, J.J. Barea and Andre Bogut, too.

All of those men are over the age of 30, and owner Mark Cuban knows that the Mavericks have to get younger and fast.

"There’s no question we knew we had to get younger. It wasn’t working just bringing in 30-35-year-old guys all the time, and so we did it. We’re not winning games like we want but we’re hoping it’ll pay off dividends because the young guys are getting minutes."

Harrison Barnes and Seth Curry look to be the future stars of this Mavericks side, but Cuban has plenty of work to do to fill out a decent side around them, especially when Nowitzki calls it a day.
