Did Shark Tank Cost the Mavs Deron Williams?

When Rick Carlisle, Donnie Nelson, and Michael Finley were in New York wooing Deron Williams, Mark Cuban was in California, taping Shark Tank. Maybe not a great move. ESPN is reporting that Williams would have liked to ask Cuban some questions:

“I think [Cuban] would have been able to answer a lot of the questions me and my agent have for him that really didn’t get answered that day pertaining to the future. And I think if he was there he would have been able to answer those questions a little bit better. It maybe would have helped me.”

I have a hard time believing that Williams couldn’t get an answer to any question he had. I mean, at least any question that had to do with basketball and the Mavericks. If, like, he wanted to know why an all-powerful, loving God would allow suffering, well, that’s different.
