Mavericks Waive Mike Miles, Two Others

The Mavericks have removed three players from their preseason roster, waiving guard Mike Miles Jr., guard Jordan Walker, and swingman Joe Wieskamp, the team announced today (via Twitter).

Miles, who signed with Dallas in July after going undrafted out of TCU, had been one of the club’s two players on two-way deals. Now that he has been cut, the Mavs are carrying only one two-way player (A.J. Lawson), leaving two openings.

Walker and Wieskamp had been on non-guaranteed Exhibit 10 contracts and look like candidates to join the Texas Legends, the Mavs’ G League affiliate. The Legends acquired Wieksamp’s returning rights from the Wisconsin Herd in a trade last month. And as an undrafted rookie, Walker can be made an affiliate player, since his rights weren’t previously held by an NBAGL team.

Walker and Wieskamp appeared in all three of the Mavs’ preseason games in Abu Dhabi and Spain, logging 24 and 12 minutes, respectively. Miles didn’t play at all in the preseason, though he averaged 12.2 points in five Summer League games for the club.

Dallas now has 18 players under contract, including 15 on standard deals, Lawson on a two-way, and Greg Brown and Dexter Dennis on Exhibit 10 pacts. The Mavs could fill their open two-way slots by converting Brown and Dennis, but it’s possible they have other moves in mind before opening night.
