Are the Mavericks trying to make inroads?
Dallas signed DeMarcus’ younger brother, Jaleel Cousins.
The Mavericks have one opening on the 20-man offseason roster after waiving Jameel Warney, but if they were serious about Jaleel making the 15-man regular-season roster, they would have signed him sooner.
Jaleel went undrafted out of South Florida, where the 6-foot-11 center averaged 8.5 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 25.0 minutes per game as a senior. He’s likely headed to the D-League.
And maybe, just maybe, he’ll help Dallas build a connection with the Cousins family.
