Mavericks release:

The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have signed free agent guard Doron Lamb.

Tim MacMahon of ESPN Dallas:

Lamb, like Dallas’ other minimally/non-guaranteed players, is a longshot to make the roster. Most likely, the Mavericks will waive him before the season and assign him to their D-League affiliate, the Texas Legends.

At that point, any NBA team could sign him or Lamb could go overseas, but if Dallas keeps him close and develops him, he could join the parent club at some point.

Yes, his only top-level skill is spot-up shooting. But on a team with Dirk Nowitzki, Chandler Parsons, Monta Ellis and Tyson Chandler, that skill has value.
