The Dallas Mavericks have had a busy Tuesday as they made a number of roster moves today.
The most significant move that Dallas made was waiving center Jeff Withey. The Mavs will assume a cap hit of about $588K for Withey should he go unclaimed on waivers.
Dallas waived swingman Antonius Cleveland and signed guard Kyle Collinsworth to a two-way contract to replace him. Cleveland suffered an ankle injury on Monday night so Dallas could bring him back if he is healthy, according to Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News.
In a corresponding move, the Mavs’ Johnathan Motley will remain in one of the team’s two slots for two-way contracts.
Mavs’ Kristaps Porzingis Aiming for Defensive Player of the Year
Dallas Mavericks’ big man Kristaps Porzingis is set to finally return to the court after nearly a two-year layoff due to injury, and he has some big goals in mind when he dons a Mavericks uniform for the very first time since his trade from the New York Knicks.
In a post on his Instagram account, Porzingis asked his followers to ask him anything, and responded to one fan in particular, who asked if he would rather be All-NBA Third Team or the All-Defensive team.
Porzingis simply stated: “All Defensive! DPOY is a goal of mine!!”
Porzingis tore his ACL during the 2017-2018 season, while he was still playing with the Knicks, so it will be interesting to see what kind form Porzingis takes the court.
Mavericks’ Mark Cuban Planning to Discuss Part-Ownership with Dirk Nowitzi
Even though his playing career is officially over, there are still plans for Dirk Nowitzki to be a part of the Dallas Mavericks in a big way.
According to DallasBasketball’s Mike Fisher, the greatest Mav to ever take the court may be taking a part-owner role with the organization, if Mark Cuban has his way.
Per the report, Cuban would “absolutely” love to have Nowitzki on board as part-owner of the team.
“I’ll have the convo with Dirk in the future. There is a lot of things involved to make it all work. But it would be awesome,” Cuban said in an interview with Fisher.
