Mavericks Waive Nate Hinton

4:32pm: Dallas has officially waived Hinton, the team’s PR department tweets.

4:15pm: The Mavericks are waiving guard Nate Hinton, Tim Cato of The Athletic tweets. Hinton was re-signed to a new two-way contract early this month.

Hinton, who finished the 2020/21 season on a two-way deal with the Mavs, received a qualifying offer equivalent to another one-year, two-way contract, so he likely simply accepted that offer at the time.

Undrafted out of Houston in 2020, Hinton appeared in 21 games for the team as a rookie, though he saw very limited minutes. He averaged 2.0 PPG in 4.4 minutes per contest, but saw more action with the G League’s Santa Cruz Warriors in the Orlando bubble season, posting averages of 10.6 PPG and 7.1 RPG in 10 games (23.0 MPG).

Rookie forward Eugene Omoruyi occupies the other two-way slot for Dallas.
