In a bit of good news, former Maverick Bernard James will become current Maverick Bernard James after clearing waivers. ESPN's Marc Stein has more.
But now that James has cleared waivers, Mavs can & will re-sign him at league minimum, which is permissable after using all their cap space— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 21, 2013
This was a risky gamble for Dallas because James is a functional big man capable of playing 10-15 minutes a game. He blocks shots, he rebounds, and generally plays hard. There's really not more you can ask out of a minimum salary player. I'm very surprised an under the cap team didn't pick him up.
James provides much needed depth to a front court which had none. With this move, Dallas now has two roster spots left to fill before the start of regular season.
