The Dallas Mavericks will meet with free agent forward Anthony Randolph, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports. Randolph did not receive a qualifying offer from the Minnesota Timberwolves, putting the rangy 6'11 forward on the open market this offseason. According to Spears, he will meet with the Atlanta Hawks this weekend before visiting with the Mavs:

Randolph was once a salivating prospect, a long and freakish athlete coming out of LSU. But he never lived up to his potential and fell out of favor with the Golden State Warriors. He's bounced back-and-forth between Minnesota and New York the past two seasons with injury problems and limited productivity.
The Mavericks would be taking a flyer on a local kid who still has some potential if he can find the right fit. He played in just 34 games for the Timberwolves last season, averaging 7.4 points in just 15.2 minutes per game.
