The Mavericks announced in a press release that they have waived Tyrell Terry, Carlik Jones, and Feron Hunt.
Terry, the 31st overall pick of the 2020 draft, was on a guaranteed contract worth more than $3.3MM over the next two seasons, including a bit more than $1.5MM this season. If no team claims him off waivers, Dallas will be responsible for the full amount of the guaranteed money left on his deal.
Terry played just 11 games as a rookie last season, missing significant time due to personal reasons. He had been away from the team during preseason action as well, reportedly due to a family matter.
The 21-year-old had a strong freshman season with Stanford in 2019/20, putting up 14.4 PPG, 4.5 RPG, and 3.2 APG (32.6 MPG) in 31 games, with a shooting line of .441/.408/.891. Many analysts considered him one of the best shooters in the 2020 draft, but had reservations about his slender frame and defense.
Jones and Hunt were undrafted rookies on Exhibit 10 contracts, and could see time with the Texas Legends, the Mavericks’ G League squad, if they’re not picked up by other teams. If they stick with the Legends for at least 60 days, they could earn bonuses of up to $50K. Both players played all four preseason contests with the Mavericks.
The moves bring the Mavericks to a full 15-man roster, with both two-way contracts filled. Terry being waived likely means that both Moses Brown and Frank Ntilikina made the team.

Congratulations to Ntilikina for being the 15th man on bench
Sounds like a Nice a gig
I thought forsure trey burke would of been wavied because he is unvacinated. I hope everything is okay with tyrell and I hope he is claimed so mavs don’t have to pay his money haha
Moses Brown better make the team. This kid is going to play well with Luka and KP and he can be a major contributor. I expect he’s a starter before too long.
Brown should make the team, but he’s not going to be starting for Dallas.
He was a starter for OKC only because they’re a young, rebuilding team.
Since Dallas has so much talent at the C position? He has to beat out Kleber and Powell, who is not even a C. Brown will start before long.
Moses Brown is one for the future for sure.
7’2 and technically in his second year averaged 8.5 points, 9 rebounds and a block a game in 21 minutes of action.
He played a total of 33 minutes as a rookie for Portland before ending up spending his second year in OKC. If you scrap that first year he would’ve made one of the all rookie teams as he had better numbers that Isiah Stewart the only centre selected in either team.
Instead he made the all G League first team and all G League defensive first team, while also finishing second in the most improved for the G League.
I hope Moses finished the year as a starter alongside KP at PG
