The Dallas Mavericks' Summer League squad will be quite the spectacle in Las Vegas from July 9-18.

The team will, of course, be headlined by Roddy Beaubois and first-round draft pick Dominique Jones.

But, of neck-craning interest will be 7-foot-4 project Moussa Seck, a native of Senegal, who was with the Mavs last summer, but was so inexperienced as basketball player, didn't play. Seck will be joined by Saint Mary's big man -- in stature and personality -- 6-11 Omar Samhan.

Another attention grabber is Harvard point guard Jeremy Lin, who is attempting to become the first American-born Asian player to make it in the NBA.

Second-round pick in 2008 Shan Foster, who has been playing overseas, will also play on the Summer League team.

A group of players, many with local ties, will be trying out for the squad Monday and Tuesday at the American Airlines Center. They include:

G, Jermaine Beal, 6-3 (Vanderbilt, from DeSoto)
F Roderick Flemings, 6-5 (Hawaii, from DeSoto)
G, Kelvin Lewis, 6-4 (Houston, from North Crowley)
G, Jamel White, 6-4 (Texas Wesleyan)
F, Zivonko Buljan (TCU)
F, Mouhammad Faye (SMU)
F, Eric Tramiel (North Texas)
F, Andre Emmett, 6-5 (Texas Tech 2004, played in Europe, S. America)
F, Larry Owens, Oral Robers (Tulsa, played in D-League)
G, Tony Crocker (Oklahoma)
G-F, Derrick Byars (Vanderbilt)
G, Dwight Lewis, 6-5 (USC)
