Dallas Mavericks Signed Kelenna Azubuike

The Dallas Mavs added Kelena Azubuike to their roster, reports ESPN: “The Dallas Mavericks signed swingman Kelenna Azubuike to fill the roster spot vacated by Thursday’s release of Sean Williams. Although Azubuike hasn’t played since early in the 2009-10 season because of a knee injury, Mavericks officials are intrigued by the progress Azubuike has made in his rehabilitation efforts, sources said. Azubuike will receive a deal for the rest of this season and a team option for next season and will start his comeback with the Frisco-based Texas Legends, Dallas’ D-League affiliate, sources said.”

    great bench player who played with lots of energy when he played with the Warriors. timely 3s and exciting dunks made him a crowd favorite. really good pickup for the Mavs.

    BUIKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! one of my fav former warrior players. Hope he kills it, but the mavs are NOT going to repeat.

    Nice… kinda wish the Knicks still had him. Can’t wait to see him play again.
    ^ Who do you think will win it this year, riggs?

    this dude can shoot the basketball. If we learned anything from Peja in last years playoffs, it’s that role players who can legitimately shoot are a valuable commodity when the game slows down.

    Lock down defense on the wing. Vs KB8 he could be a solid defender.
