Mavs re-sign Mejri to help back up Jordan

The Mavericks now have 16 guaranteed contracts with the Chinanu Onuaku. The money received from Houston will offset the cost of waiving a guaranteed player plus give the Mavericks additional compensation. Dallas now has $982K in room and will likely sign Salah Mejri, Devin Harris and Ryan Broekhoff. The Mavericks can exceed the cap based on the three players signing for the minimum exception. Dallas still has the $4.5M room midlevel exception available.

Sources: Dirk Nowitzki's one-year, $5 million deal with the Mavs does not include a no-trade clause, meaning no NBA player has one in his contract. As a one-year Bird restriction, Nowitzki still has the right to veto any trade. "Wasn't anything intentional on our end," a Mavs source told ESPN. The Mavs tried to include a no-trade clause — as Nowitzki's past deals have had — but the NBA office said it would be "redundant," another team source said. There is no chance the Mavs would ever consider trading Nowitzki, who will break a record he shares with Kobe Bryant for longest tenure with one team when he begins his 21st season this year.
