Dez Bryant turns recruiter for NBA neighbors

Dez Bryant’s trying to haul in another touchdown for Dallas.

Only this time, it’s for the NBA Mavericks rather than the Cowboys.

The big-play receiver sent a Twitter message to free agent point guard Deron Williams, considered the prize of this summer’s NBA free agent class.

“Dallas fans are waiting on your arrival,” Bryant tweeted to Williams, a simple, but elegant note.

Williams is expected to decide between joining the Mavericks or staying with the Brooklyn Nets soon.

Something tells me as earnest and well-intentioned as Bryant’s missive was, the envelope full of long green messages Mavs owner Mark Cuban could be sending might matter a little more.

We now return you to July in the NFL.
