You can't always get what you want, even if you're a billionaire.

Mark Cuban addressed Mavs fans Thursday after DeAndre Jordan reneged on a verbal agreement with Dallas and re-signed with the Clippers. The Mavs owner used his private messaging application Cyber Dust to explain the chaos from his perspective.

Here is Cuban's full message via ESPN's Tim MacMahon:

Dear Mavs fans.

There will be a time when I detail everything i know regarding the last 48 hours.

I don’t think the time is right to say anything beyond the facts that he never responded to me at all yesterday. Not once. To this minute I have not heard anything from him since Tuesday night.

More importantly,  I specifically told Wes that I would not hold him to his commitment if he wanted to go elsewhere.

I can’t print his exact response , but suffice it to say he is excited to play for our Mavs:)  Wes Matthews is exactly the type of player we want in a Mavs uniform and our fans will love him

He will be in Dallas today so if you see him give him an MFFL welcome

+letsgomavs !

And Dust On !

It's hard to feel bad for Cuban because he still has lots of money and owns a professional team, but if you're a Mavs fan, that's a rough way to lose a big offseason acquisition.

But it could be worse. At least Wesley Matthews isn't going anywhere.
