Mavericks to complete the signing of Jameer Nelson on Thursday

The Dallas Mavericks have had a busy day on Wednesday. They voided the contract of forward Rashard Lewis when they discovered that he needed knee surgery during his physical.

They then acted quickly in their pursuit of Orlando Magic point guard Jameer Nelson. The Mavericks are expected to have a visit with Nelson on Thursday, and during that visit they will sign him to their $2.7 million exception.

That means they won’t be using that exception on small forward Shawn Marion. Nelson joins Raymond Felton and Devin Harris at point guard, looking to fill the void by the trade that sent Jose Calderon to the New York Knicks.
