So, enter Jonathan Gibson, exit Quincy Acy.
Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:
The Mavericks signed Gibson last offseason to a fully guaranteed salary and waived him before the regular season anyway. Dallas values preseason competition and will pay a premium for it.
Gibson excelled for the Mavericks’ summer-league team and internationally before that. The 29-year-old went undrafted out of New Mexico State in 2010. He’s more of a scorer than a traditional point guard, but at 6-foot-2, he’ll have to handle the point in the NBA. If his outside shooting translates, that could buy him time to develop his distributing.
Acy can be a nice hustle player, but he has struggled this season. The Mavericks will eat his minimum salary, and maybe – like Gibson – give him another deal as their needs change.
