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.
