ESPN: Alexis Ajinca Could Be Traded Quickly

Marc Stein reports that recently obtained Alexi Ajinca could be headed back out of town in short order. Ajinca’s agent has apparently asked the club to pursue a move.

It doesn’t figure to be an acrimonious situation if Ajinca hangs around, but since both Ndiaye clients are at best bidding to be Dallas’ No. 3 center behind recent re-signee/presumed starter Brendan Haywood and marquee newcomer Tyson Chandler, ESPNDallas.com has learned that the Mavericks have been asked to shop Ajinca in the hope they can find a team that might be able to offer him more hope for minutes.

Ajinca is owed $1.467 million this season but has a team option for 2011-12 and a team qualifier for 2012-13, so a little value can be derived as a sort of expiring contract, particularly 60 days after the recent trade that sent him to Dallas. After that time, he can be included in a larger deal.
