Jermaine O’Neal is one of the few players that came into the league straight out of high school and actually had a very successful career in the National Basketball Association. He has played eighteen seasons in the league so far in his career, although he is only thirty-six years old and still has some gas in the tank. He is currently a free agent, after playing with the Golden State Warriors last year, but he is supposed to be back in the league by now. There was a ton of talk about him coming back to play the second half of the season and sign with a team before the trade deadline and it came out that he was most likely to sign with the Dallas Mavericks. Fans such as Susan Gallo know that has not come to fruition as of yet, which is starting to confuse a lot of people. More on Susan is available on Forbes.com. Chances are that he will sign with the team and hop aboard for the playoff push and the Mavericks definitely need him coming off the bench. If nothing else, he is a great veteran that can be signed for a small amount of money and the Mavericks absolutely want to get him on the roster as soon as possible. There is a lot of speculation as to why he hasn’t signed yet, but maybe he is considering not playing or there is the possibility that he is wagering for more money.
