Update on Preseason Mavericks
Our friends at Bulldog Maroon and White offered a nice update on former Mavs hopeful Charles Rhodes, who is now playing in Latvia. The game, as many know, is much different over there and can be a hard adjustment for American players to make--just ask Shaun Livingston, the new Greek god of basketball. Rhodes also illustrated this to us in his debut, fouling out in about 10 minutes and receiving a technical as well. But his coach likes his upside, and says he has some serious potential. We will keep you updated as the season progresses and hopefully he will return to Mavs training camp next year. Thanks again to Bulldog for their inside info.
Some other Mavs Training-Camper updates:
Shan Foster--Has played in 6 games for Italian squad Juve Caserta and is averaging 10.7 points per game in 29 minutes of action. Has a career high of 18 points in which he has 6-10 including 3-4 from beyond the arc.
JaJuan Smith--After being cut he signed with a Slovenian team, Union Olimpija. However, after only a week he left the team due to "personal reasons." It is not understood that Smith is a free agent.
Keith Mcleod is also a free agent, not opting to go to Europe, but holding out on an NBA team calling.
