In an interview with NBCDFW.com, Deron Williams (sports hernia) said that he will be ready in time for training camp.

"Feeling really good. It's healing pretty well, I'm doing a lot of work on and off the court. I haven't got the full-go clearance yet but that's coming soon," Williams said. "I'll be ready to go definitely by the time training camp rolls around." He added that he's already jumping and running, and said that his next checkup is August 1st. Williams re-signed with the Mavs on a one-year, $10 million deal and should be team's starting point guard once again. However, he's more of a late-round pick after averaging 14.1 points on 41.1 percent shooting with 5.8 assists, 2.9 rebounds, 1.5 treys, 0.9 steals and 2.4 turnovers per game last season.

Mark Cuban said he views Seth Curry as an "instant-offense guy" off the bench.

"He's been in situations where only at the end of last season did he really get a chance to start and get minutes and when he got those minutes he did really well," Cuban said. "He can shoot, obviously. He can create his own shot, quick release. He's a knock-down 3-point shooter and we thought that was something we needed." Curry should be able to find a stable role off the bench in Dallas after signing a two-year, $6 million deal.

Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavs have finalized their new contract to $50 million over two years.

He was originally expected to get $40 million over two years, so the Mavs are rewarding him now that they have some cap space after some swings and misses in free agency. Nowitzki just turned 38 last month, but he played 31.5 minutes per game over 75 outings last year. While he has played at least 75 games in each of his last three seasons, it would be a surprise to see him repeat this feat next year.

Roddy Beaubois has signed a two-year deal with Baskonia in Spain.

The Mavericks were interested in bringing him back, but he wasn't pleased with their offer. Beaubois is 28 years old and likely won't be back in the NBA.

The Mavs have reportedly signed undrafted G Kyle Collinsworth to a partially guaranteed two-year deal.

It's a camp invite and there's really no way Collinsworth makes the opening-night roster with Deron Williams, J.J. Barea and Devin Harris all on guaranteed deals.

Delonte West is attempting a comeback, according to his mother.

The 32-year-old hasn't played in the NBA since the 2011-12 season, but his mom says West is working on a comeback attempt. "He is working toward coming back to the NBA," Delphina West said. "He has been working out and that’s where he's at as of now." While it's nice to see Delonte getting his life back on track, there's nothing to see here for fantasy owners.

Roddy Beaubois has declined the Mavericks training camp invitation.

The Mavericks reportedly offered Beaubois a three-year partially guaranteed contract for the veteran's minimum, but the 28-year-old is instead reportedly close to signing a deal with Saski Baskonia of Spain. While Beaubois showed promise as a rookie in 2009-10, he won't have any fantasy relevance if he heads overseas.

Roddy Beaubois is reportedly nearing an agreement to sign with Saski Baskonia of Spain.

Beaubois has reportedly declined Dallas' offer to come stateside and compete for a roster spot during training camp, and at 28 years old, he may have already played his final game in an NBA uniform.

Jonathan Gibson's three-year contract with the Mavs is only guaranteed for the first season.

Gibson will earn a guaranteed $543,471 during the first year of his deal, but Year-2 and Year-3 are both team options. Gibson was Dallas' best player during summer league, but he'll struggle to get meaningful minutes during the regular season while Wesley Matthews and Seth Curry are healthy.

Rick Carlisle said that he expects Dwight Powell to be a regular part of the rotation next season.

"I expect him to be a rotation player," Carlisle said. "He's a combination four/five. I see him playing both positions. Time will tell how much at each, but I do believe there are going to be a lot of situations where he'll play both positions in the same game." The Mavs didn't ink him to a four-year, $37 million deal for him to sit on the bench, and it sounds like he'll be the first big off the bench this upcoming season. Powell will be someone to consider as a late-round gamble on draft day.

The Warriors gave Andrew Bogut a choice between the Rockets and Mavericks, and Bogut decided to go to Dallas.

The 76ers also inquired about Bogut, but the Dubs never seriously entertained those offers, as they wanted to send Bogut to a playoff contender out of respect. Bogut could see a small boost in value playing in Rick Carlisle's system, but his lengthy injury history makes him a risky target in any setting. For what it's worth, Carlisle proclaimed Bogut is a "top-five" defensive center in the league, and suggested he'll have a role in Dallas' offense, primarily as a passer and roll man.

Mark Cuban said that he believes Harrison Barnes can develop into a go-to guy on offense for the Mavericks.

"You're going to see a lot more to his game than you've seen in the past," Cuban said. "I think he can do a lot more than he's been asked to do, and that's what we expect to see. ... Maybe not first year, but I think he's going to grow into [the role of go-to guy]." The important part of this quote is that even Cuban acknowledges it's unlikely Barnes can immediately step into a feature role during his first year with the team, and we don't see him being much more than a mid-round guy in Dallas.

The Mavs are reportedly still in talks with Roddy Beaubois to bring him to Dallas and compete for a roster spot during training camp.

The former first-round talent showed flashes of potential during his four years in the league, but various injuries kept his career from ever taking off. If Beaubois does manage to make the Mavs' opening night roster, he wouldn't be anything more than an emergency depth kind of guy, and wouldn't be worth drafting in most leagues.
Jul 14 - 6:37 PM

Quincy Acy has agreed to a two-year deal with the Mavericks.

He's a nice locker room guy, but his fantasy value is non-existent.
Jul 14 - 6:18 PM

Casey Prather has re-signed with the Perth Wildcats of Australia.

Prather had been playing summer league with the Mavericks, but will head back Down Under to re-join the Wildcats. As such, the 25-year-old can be ignored in all fantasy leagues.
