With three games left in the season, the Dallas Mavericks are poised to make a roster change and bring on a new guy.
When the Dallas Mavericks decided to let the 10-day contract of Manny Harris expire and they signed Jarrod Uthoff to a longer deal, this naturally opened up a roster spot for Dallas.
Before the San Antonio game on Friday night, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban spent time with the media where he raised some eyebrows in regards to the roster.
As the media session was wrapping up, Cuban casually said “We got some other surprises coming roster wise.”

This is dealing directly with the open roster spot and adding a player to the roster.
But with three games left in the season, what does bringing in a guy for that amount of time do for the franchise?
To Cuban, it seems as if it will be more than a three game tryout, but rather a contract that will allow the Mavericks to work with the player this summer also.
"“Looking for a pass first, give him a couple of minutes. See if he can do it and see what happens over the summer,” Cuban said."
Immediately, you think about possible D-League call-ups, but Cuban bluntly said “It won’t be a traditional D-League call-up.”
Whether that means it won’t be a traditional 10-day contract or that it won’t be a D-League player, a player looks to be coming to the Mavericks in the next 24-48 hours.
