The once and future Maverick will finish out summer league with Dallas

NBA: Dallas Mavericks at Orlando Magic Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

According to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports, the Dallas Mavericks have released guard Kyle Collinsworth from the multi year contract he signed last season.

Collinsworth began last season as part of the Maverick pre-season roster following a solid performance on the summer league roster. He was cut in October and picked up by the Maverick G-League affiliate, the Texas Legends. Following some injuries and roster shuffling with Dallas, the Mavericks brought Collinsworth up on a pair of ten day contracts before signing him to a multi-year deal.

However, the deal was non-guaranteed and the Mavericks had to make a decision on Collinsworth by today. Given his reasonably long affiliation with the Mavericks to date, it’s not that surprising that he’s going to finish out summer league on the Dallas roster.

On the season, he averaged 3.2 points on 38.4 percent shooting, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.8 assists. While he looked good on the court in terms of offensive movement, he didn’t look for his shot often, which is reflected in his 3.1 field goal attempts per game. His true shooting percentage, .433, is also among the lowest on the team. There may yet be a spot in the NBA for Collinsworth, but it’s most likely not with the Dallas Mavericks.
