Default The Mavs point guard situation

Jose Calderon was the first major signing for the Mavs this summer and will provide an upgrade at the point guard position. But they will have two intriguing prospects in Shane Larkin and Gal Mekel. Larkin was unable to participate in the summer league due to a fracture in his right ankle, but Mekel turned heads with his performance in Vegas.

Sources told ESPNDallas.com that teams in Vegas were speculating about whether Mekel actually signed a contract with the Mavs, in hopes of poaching the Israeli guard. Fortunately for Dallas, this won’t be another Jeremy Lin situation, as Mekel officially signed a multiyear contract before coming to Nevada. One or both of the guards might have to spend time with the Mavericks' D-League team, but they should provide depth for Dallas.
