The Dallas Mavericks have released their roster for the Orlando Summer League.
As expected, first round draft pick Dennis Smith, Jr. will not make an appearance in Orlando. Expect to see Smith and other players like Yogi Ferrell and Nicolas Brussino on the Las Vegas Summer League Roster.
However, there are some familiar names on the Orlando roster.
Jonathan Motley, who signed a two-way contract with Dallas on June 24, is one of the more notable names. He went undrafted this summer after suffering a knee injury in Baylor’s final game in the NCAA tournament. He posted averages of 17.3 points and 9.9 rebounds in his junior season.
Ding Yanyuhaung was the MVP of the China Basketball Association this year. You can read our report about him here.
Keith Hornsby has played for the Mavs before. He was on their training camp roster in 2016 before being waived by the team. He played with the Texas Legends last season. His dad is a famous musician who is friends with Rick Carlisle.
Brandon Ashley is also a former training camp invite for Dallas. He played for the team in 2015 during the Las Vegas Summer League before joining the training camp roster. He later joined the Texas Legends before playing the following season in Germany.
Jameel Warney played for the Mavs’ Summer League team in 2016. He, like Hornsby, also joined the training camp roster before being waived and joining the Legends.
And last, but certainly not least, there’s Satnam Singh. Singh, who is perhaps the most well known player on the roster, was Dallas’ second round draft pick in 2015. Singh has spent the entirety of his professional career in Frisco with the Legends. I profiled him in 2015.
Each game will air on NBA TV with the first game also airing locally in the Dallas area on TXA 21.
