Big Nate Jawai a Maverick!

just heard Jawai is part of the deal that sends Marion to the Mavs. I wonder how he will go with them?

Sadly I think nate is headed for the D league or Europe. He won't be playing NBA this year

Dallas isn't loaded at the 5. There is a spot for Nate.

Currently under contract all they have is Dampier, which they are thinking of moving.

Ryan Hollins is a FA and probably won't be signed. Jawai's contract is guaranteed (doesn't mean he can't be bought out) so I'm guessing that they'll use Jawai and let Hollins walk.

Gortat hasn't signed a contract yet. If Gortat signs then it gives the a 5 rotation of Gortat/Dampier/Jawai.

As it stands right now the Mavs roster is:

Dirk, Dampier, Marion, Howard, Kidd, Barea, Humpries, Jawai, Ross, Beabouis, Terry, Carroll and Williams. Which is the league minimum of 13. Add Gortat and Bucknor and you have the league maximum of 15.

I think they let Bass walk...

Interesting move for Jawai's future.
The Mavs have Dirk, Damp, Hump and probably Gortat as their bigs.
They also may bring Hollins and/or Bass back so Jawai will be competing with Hollins and Hump for any spare backup minutes at C and PF.
If he is fit for camp and ready to play I like his chances of beating out those 2.
The Mavs really need some inside scoring and he could get 5mpg at the start of the season to prove he can compete.

The other thing to consider is if the Magic keep Gortat and the Mavs lose Bass as well then a lot more minutes will open up.
There is also a chance they will use Damp in a trade for a starting SG, if they don't think Josh Howard can play SG fulltime.

Bucknor's contract isn't guaranteed. He's an easy waive.. They don't need Bucknor at all, whilst in the West they need bigger bodies.

Nate's only hope is that Brandon Bass doesn't return as they are going to fill the same role's. Bass is the more complete player as he can consistently hit the mid-range jumper and is almost as equally as explosive in the post as Jawai. Word is Bass will be allowed to walk. There isn't room for Hollins, Dampier, Nowitzki, Jawai and Gortat on the one roster as the Mavericks anticipate running a small ball unit of Kidd, Terry, Howard, Marion and Nowitzki in big game siuations

This is huge. And bad. Toronto atleast had plans to use him until this trade. No minutes in Dallas, too many star players who will eat up whatever minutes he might have had a chance at

U know what I find funny?

Nathan Jawai is the only player in the entire NBA with a NEGATIVE overall effiency rating. I know he's only played a few games... but still that's funny.

There is nothing that isn't funny about how much attention we all give this nobody. I don't why anyone cares...

Hmmm.... let me see. Australian basketball player in NBA gets traded being discussed on a basketball forum. Yes..... very strange.

Well he has got one more year on his deal so one chance to make it happen really, unlikely he would get another deal with someone else.
