Mavs waive Chris Douglas-Roberts

1/7/2013

The Mavericks waived swingman Chris Douglas-Roberts on Sunday, opening up a roster spot to potentially sign a player to a 10-day contract.

Douglas-Roberts, who was promoted from the D-League Texas Legends, averaged 2.8 points in six games for the Mavs. His contract would have become fully guaranteed Monday afternoon.

One possibility to replace Douglas-Roberts on the roster is 37-year-old point guard Mike James, who signed with the Legends this week in hopes of convincing Dallas decision makers that he could help the Mavs. James scored 26 points on 10-of-20 shooting in his Legends debut, a 116-80 win over Saturday night over the Tulsa 66ers.

The Mavs could also opt to re-sign Douglas-Roberts to a 10-day deal if he clears waivers.
