Bernard James Clears Waivers, Will Resign in Dallas

The second year big man will return to Dallas after clearing waivers

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

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.

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.
