Kevin Willis a Mav pending physical
 
Avery just said it during the pregame interviews before the Knicks game.

If he passes the physical, he will join the team in Phoenix on Monday for practice.

DALLAS - The Mavs are planning to sign center Kevin Willis, 44, to a 10-day contract.

Willis will undergo an intense physical tomorrow, and the Mavs hope he will be able to join them in time to practice in Phoenix.

Willis last played in 2004-05 with Atlanta, but he never officially retired.

The Mavs' plan is to have Willis participate in a few practices to get him comfortable and in game shape, and then have him ready to play April 6 in Denver at the earliest.

"We don't want Kevin to look bad," coach Avery Johnson said. "He's had a celebrated career. He has played a long time."

The move means the Mavs will have finally filled the roster vacancy left by the season-ending injury to DJ Mbenga. Willis will be the team's third center behind Erick Dampier and DeSagana Diop.

yeah i really like this, I'm a big fan of Kevin Willis. His age is less of a factor because of the tremendous shape he keeps himself in. I loved the way he played in 2003 and 2004 with San Antonio and Atlanta.
