Dallas Mavericks Sign Nicolas Brussino from Argentina
The Dallas Mavericks continue to fill out their roster by signing 23-year old forward, Nicolas Brussino from Argentina.
With the recent trade of Jeremy Evans to the Indiana Pacers, Dallas opened up another roster spot to fill as they continue through the summer.
With the remaining free agents available and the summer league well underway, Dallas went the international route in adding some younger talent to their roster.
Brussino comes in as a 23-year old small forward from Argentina. Standing at 6’8″, 195 pounds, Brussino who has played for Regatas Corrientes over the past couple of years, but recently suited up for Penarol last season. He entered the draft in 2015 but did not find his name being called on draft night.
At Penarol, Brussino started in 40 of the 59 games in the Argentinian LIga A league. He also starts for the Argentinian National Team.
Brussino averaged nearly 15 points a game while shooting 55% from the field last year where he led his team to 32-24 record. Brussino also shot 39.4% from behind the arc last season.
Brussino shows glimpse of athleticism and a linky body that could be developed into a defensive threat on the other end of the ball.

As far as Brussino’s fit with Dallas, he would most likely be at the end of the bench or the D-League as he continues to develop as a player.
