Charlie Villanueva trying to stick with MavsForward Charlie Villanueva hasn't done much in the NBA in recent seasons, and in 2013-14 for the Detroit Pistons averaged just nine minutes of playing time in 20 total games. Time for a comeback. Villanueva in training camp right now with the Dallas Mavericks, and it'll be interesting to see if he's able to make their regular season roster. He did some nice things on the court in the past and is worth keeping an eye on. Here's ESPN Dallas reporting:

The Dallas Mavericks guaranteed Charlie Villanueva nothing but a chance to compete for a roster spot when he signed this summer.

Villanueva, the nine-year NBA veteran whose once promising career fizzled the last few seasons with the Detroit Pistons, has a legitimate shot. That’s in large part because of Villanueva’s long-distance shooting range.

“You’ve got to guard Charlie when he walks in the tunnel,” coach Rick Carlisle said, right after Villanueva knocked down 22 of 25 3-point attempts in a post-practice shooting drill. “He can flip in shots from 35 feet. He’s one of those guys with uncommon range and quickness of release.”

The Mavs could use a 6-foot-10 stretch power forward coming off the bench. They thought they signed that guy in Rashard Lewis before his contract was voided following the discovery that knee surgery was necessary.
