Nelson said Charles Rhodes, a bruising 6-8, 245-pound forward from Mississippi State, and JaJuan Smith, a 6-2 guard from Tennessee, will likely be invited to fall training camp.
"Rhodes is real athletic and showed really good promise," Nelson said. "Smith is a guy we have our eye on. The rest are open for discussion."
Nelson said the Mavs will not have a lot of candidates for the final two roster spots.
"We’re not going to have that many guys in training camp," he said. "It won’t be any more than 17 or 18. But we’re planning on having a good old-fashioned training camp with spots that are going to be won. We have 13 players with guarantees, but if one of the veterans shows up and is not prepared, we’re not afraid to cut guaranteed money."
I definitely think he can make the team. During summer league, he worked hard on both ends. The guy deserves it. Now if only JaMont worked as hard as Charles.
