The Mavs recalled Larkin on Saturday, a night after the first-round point guard had his best D-League performance, putting up 22 points and 11 assists in the Legends' win over the Maine Red Claws. Larkin has averaged 15.3 points and 8.3 assists in four D-League games this season.
Mekel, a rookie point guard, will switch places with Larkin, having been re-assigned to the Legends. Mekel has played in three D-League games this season, averaging 9.3 points and 6.3 assists.
The Mavs will continue regularly sending their young players to the D-League to get them minutes for the rest of the season.
