Throwing out flyers in free agency, the Dallas Mavericks are inviting Corey Webster to a free agent mini-camp.
Every year, every franchise holds some type (sometimes multiple) of mini-camp throughout the offseason where they bring in players from across the globe to see what talent they have up close.
Players from leagues around the world to players that are looking for a second chance in the NBA, teams host free agent mini-camps where they can determine up close if a player is worthy of a Summer League invite or possibly a training camp invite that Fall.
For the Dallas Mavericks, a name out of New Zealand looks to join one of their mini-camps coming up.
According to the New Zealand Herald, Corey Webster, of the Perth Wildcats, will come to Dallas and participate in a free agent mini-camp for the Dallas Mavericks.

Webster is a 6’2″ shooting guard who was the 2014 NBL MVP and could be the MVP of the current 2017 season after averaging 26 points, four rebounds and five assists a game.
“I’m feeling great about it, it’s a great opportunity,” Webster told NBL Media. “Having been there before, I know a little bit more of what to expect and although it’s only a mini camp, I feel it’s a great opportunity for me.” (per NBL.com)
The experience Webster is referring to is his brief time with the New Orleans Pelicans in 2015 where he was invited for training camp and participated in the preseason. He was eventually cut from the roster before opening night.
Now, he comes to Dallas two years later hoping to impress enough in the mini-camp to gain a summer league spot for the Mavericks.
With the need for more shooting on the roster, Webster could make the most of the opportunity and come on board for the Mavericks when they send a good chunk of their roster to the Summer League.
