Mavericks Offseason Rumors: Nick Calathes Wants To Join Dallas' Summer League Team

Nick Calathes is a former 2009 draft pick by the Dallas Mavericks, and now that his three-year contract with Panathinaikos in the EuroLeague is up he wants to join the Mavericks summer league team in hopes of making a roster spot.

While the Mavericks front office felt that Calathes was a first-round talent they picked up with the No. 45 overall pick a few years back, but now the team is not sold on offering him even a minimum contract:

However, a team source indicated that it's far from a sure thing that Calathes will join the Mavs this summer. The source said Calathes is being heavily recruited by several European teams, and the Mavs will be cautious of making even a minimal financial commitment before they've finished their free agency shopping.

If the Mavericks do sign Calathes it would be a non-guaranteed deal so that he would not impact their salary cap space this summer.
