JANUARY 10: Pinson’s two-way contract with the Mavs is now official, the team announced today (Twitter link). Dallas once again has a full 17-man roster and is expected to add an 18th man by re-signing Marquese Chriss to another 10-day hardship contract.
JANUARY 8: The Mavericks are signing forward Theo Pinson to a two-way contract, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (Twitter link). Pinson previously signed a pair of 10-day hardship contracts with the team, the second of which will expire on Sunday night.
Pinson, 26, holds past NBA experience with Brooklyn, New York and Dallas. He played 51 games with the Nets between 2018-20 and 17 games with the Knicks in 2020-21.
In his 10 appearances with Dallas this season, Pinson has averaged 2.5 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 9.3 minutes per contest. He’s shot 30% from the floor during those outings.
Pinson went undrafted in 2018 after spending four seasons at North Carolina. The Mavericks have dealt with key availability issues this season, but the team still holds the fifth-best record in the West at 21-18.

I don’t get it. His shooting has been awful. A lot better options there for their open 2 way slot. Mavs should sign Chriss for the rest of the year too and cut Cauley-Stein.
Trog thats what I was wondering is criss going to be signed for rest of year.im all for cutting wcs and his personal problems.
I live in Dallas and the local journalists, bloggers and radio hosts all have reported that Mavs will probably share up back end of their roster. Chriss seems like a slam dunk for a guarantee. He’s performed well and gives good position flexibility with being able to play and defend 3-5.
WCS is an obvious casualty if they aren’t trying to use his salary in a larger trade. McLaughlin has not impressed on the other 2 way. Ntilikina is likely on thin ice too.
Dallas Knicks continue ????
Really have to wonder about this. Never seen it before.
Theo is the ultimate bench player. He is a cheerleader and motivator. He was a fan favorite with both the Knicks and Nets with the same FG percentage.
