The Dallas Mavericks waived Bernard James, a 6-foot-10 center who was the 33rd overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft.

James, 28, started 11 games for the Mavericks last season and averaged 2.8 points and 2.8 rebounds.

Dallas remains interested in signing Greg Oden, who is expected to choose between the Mavericks, Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs and New Orleans Pelicans.
