The Mavericks, with two spaces to fill on their roster, are hoping to fill one of them with Delonte West.
“We’ve got 15 spots and 13 players are under contract,’’ general manager Donnie Nelson said. “We’ve got a little work to do yet, hopefully Delonte will slide into one of those spots.
“If that’s the case that’ll be great.’’
West averaged 9.6 points and 3.2 assists in 44 games for the Mavericks this past season.
“We’re still in negotiations with his agent and we’re hopeful that we can work something out,’’ Nelson said. “Obviously he’s got options and he’s got to sort through those.
“Some of those are timing issues there. We’ve just got to continue to negotiate and talk and see if there’s a fit there.’’
