The Mavs’ big man search is back to square one. Dallas was close to signing D-League All-Star Dwayne Jones to a 10-day contract to provide depth at center, but the Mavs were apparently left unimpressed by his workout today with the team. Marc Stein notes that Jake Voskuhl could be Jones’ replacement, a move which I find to be a bit uninspired and plenty underwhelming. We know what Voskuhl can do, and we know plenty about what he can’t do. But Jones deserves a legit shot at the pro level, and I think his unassuming, low-maintenance game would have been a nice addition for Dallas off the bench.

Apparently it wasn’t meant to be. But Stein also reports that the Mavs still plan on signing Von Wafer to a 10-day and will possibly put pen to paper tomorrow.

  • Steve Weinman

    Mikki Moore, anybody?

    He’s pretty much the mirror image of Dwayne Jones, only, you know, the exact opposite: occasionally hits a mid-range jumper, screams a lot, doesn’t rebound, doesn’t defend…

    …yeah, I’m still peeved about his time as a Celtic.

    Don’t get it. He can’t really be THAT bad, can he? I mean, there’s pretty much no risk at all in signing him for 10 days, is there?

  • Crawford

    NBADL must really be bad. That’s the sadder part.

    @Rob You should change the banner back, not because I hate change, but because I hate watered down stuff. Experience the sights and sounds?…way more pedestrian than your VERY PROVEN artistic capabilities.
