Mavs eye D-League point guards

March, 10, 2013
The Mavericks are likely to call up a point guard from the D-League to fill the vacant roster spot created by Dominique Jones' release, a source said.

Some potential fits for a 10-day deal in Dallas:

*Chris Wright: He’s averaging 15.5 points, 7.0 assists and 4.3 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game for the Iowa Energy. The 23-year-old Wright (6-foot-1, 210 pounds) starred in Turkey last season after going undrafted out of Georgetown.

*Ben Uzoh: The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Uzoh, who turns 25 this month, has 60 games of NBA experience, including a triple-double for the Raptors last season. He’s averaging 13.4 points, 5.7 assists and 4.6 rebounds for the Springfield Armor.

*Justin Dentmon: He’s a 27-year-old who has averaged 20.9 points and 4.4 assists in 125 career D-League games. Dentmon, who is back with the Texas Legends after a stint in Austin, is leading the D-League in scoring with 21.4 points per game this season but is shooting only 41.2 percent from the floor.

*Sean Singletary: The 6-foot, 185-pound Singletary, 27, is Dentmon’s teammate with the Texas Legends. He averages 13.5 points and 6.1 assists per game.

The Mavs will also keep a close eye on cuts around the league in case a player who they believe has some value becomes available.
