Tim MacMahon: A source said C Jaleel Cousins, DeMarcus’ younger brother, is expected to join the D-League Texas Legends if he clears waivers following his release from the Mavs. All of the Mavs’ cuts are open to joining the team’s D-League affiliate with the exception of G Kyle Collinsworth, who plans to play overseas. However, there is a decent possibility that final cut Jonathan Gibson gets claimed by another NBA team.

While he’s been to a few summer leagues, this represents Gibson’s best shot at making an NBA team. He’s got a fully guaranteed rookie salary ($543,000) and the Mavericks need a younger player behind Deron Williams, Devin Harris and J.J. Barea. Plus, it’s a shot to play in his home country, which he hasn’t done since leaving New Mexico State in 2010. “It’s definitely nice to be here,” he said. “Same language, same food. It’s great.”
Gibson also has played in Turkey, Israel, Italy and Iran. Iran? “I was there for 37 days,” he said. “It was OK. The people were nice. It wasn’t like it looks on TV. Going over there, I was (worried). But once I got there, it was OK.” Iran also was where he had one of the weirdest experiences of his overseas travels. “I was walking through a big crowd and somebody took my shoes out of my backpack – while it was on my back,” he said. “The fans are into it over there. Soccer is No. 1, but basketball is No. 2 there.”
