Meet Dallas Mavericks Las Vegas Summer League roster: David Collins- G

Collins is a 6’4 guard that played five seasons of college basketball. The first four were at South Florida before he transferred to Clemson for his senior year. Last season, Collins averaged 10.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.6 steals in 28.8 minutes per game on 51.1 percent shooting from the field and 38.0 percent on his threes.

The 24-year-old went undrafted in 2022, and he figures to play a bench role for the Mavericks in Las Vegas.

Pajola has been playing professional basketball in his native Italy since 2015, and the 22-year-old has by far the most pro experience on the roster. Last season for Virtus Bologna, he averaged 4.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 1.1 steals in 21.4 minutes per game.

Pajola is a 6’4 guard that went undrafted in 2021. He will be looking to earn minutes in a crowded rotation and stand out in front of the NBA scouts in attendance in Vegas.

Meet Dallas Mavericks Las Vegas Summer League roster: Sam Waardenburg- F

Waardenburg was a late addition to the Mavs summer league roster, but he took part in the camp that started on July 5. The 23-year-old forward gives the team some needed size and rim protection.

He played four years at the University of Miami, where he averaged 8.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.3 blocks per game last season. The 6’10 forward shot 36.9 percent from 3-point range during his college career, and he provides some intrigue as a stretch big man.
