Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said that there was currently no news regarding a potential signing of the veteran.
“I don't know if he wants to come here. [There are] a lot of decisions to be made before then," Cuban said about O’Neal.
O’Neal recently traveled to Germany to undergo treatment on his knees and has been working out near his home in Dallas. The Portland Trail Blazers, with whom O’Neal spent his first four NBA seasons, have also reportedly shown interest in the 18-year veteran.
O'Neal, a six-time All-Star, has averaged 13.2 points and 7.2 rebounds per game over his career. He spent 44 games last season with the Golden State Warriors, averaging 7.9 points and 5.5 rebounds.
The Mavericks (30-15) are sixth in the Western Conference, have lost two games in a row and play three of their next four games on the road.
