The Mavs join 22 other NBA teams and a D-League select squad in Las Vegas for a five-game schedule starting next Saturday (Mavs schedule below). The Dallas team will be headlined by guard Dominique Jones, who heads into his third season looking to make a serious push for a rotation spot. He didn't get the chance to compete in Vegas last summer because the lockout wiped out the league. The Mavs' three draft picks will also carry intrigue: combo guard Jared Cunningham (24th), center Bernard James (33rd) and small forward Jae Crowder (34th). ESPN.com

Rick Carlisle said they'll monitor Vince Carter progress before making a decision on possibly recalling second-year guard Dominique Jones from the club's D-League affiliate. The Dallas Mavricks assigned Jones to the Texas Legends on Sunday, prior to departing on this four-game road trip. Carter sprained his left foot on the final play of Monday's loss at the Los Angeles Lakers as he got off a game-tying 3-point attempt. Carlisle ruled Carter out for Wednesday's game at the Los Angeles Clippers, and it would seem unlikely that Carter, who couldn't put weight on the foot after the game, would be available for Thursday night's game at the Utah Jazz.

DallasBasketball.com and FOXSports has learned exclusively that Mavericks guard Dominique Jones is planning to follow up on his rookie (and championship) season by considering a trio of offers to leave the United States and play professionally overseas. Previously, Jones told us, "I turned down two offers to play overseas in Jerusalem and in Germany. No thanks. I'm fine with money. Since I was 5 years old, playing in the NBA was my dream."

On August 19, 2011, Kaufmann Sports Management Group, LLC (KSMG) announced (via its Facebook page) that it had signed Dallas Mavericks Guard Dominique Jones as a client. He has become KSMG’s first basketball client. Jones will be represented by KSMG for marketing purposes, while he will continue to be represented by Mike Hodges for team contracts. Hodges has represented Jones since he left the University of South Florida (USF) after his junior year. Dominique Jones was selected by the Memphis Grizzlies in the 1st round (#25 overall) of the 2010 NBA Draft. The Mavericks quickly purchased that pick from the Grizzlies and made Jones a part of what would become the 2011 NBA Champions. Sports Agent Blog

Former USF player Dominique Jones had his rookie season in the NBA cut short due to a stress fracture in his foot, but he'll still collect a ring/belt/bauble/small private island from Mark Cuban for winning a championship with the Dallas Mavericks this year. And to further celebrate the achievement, DoJo decided that it would be a killer idea to get the Larry O'Brien trophy tattooed on his neck. Jason Terry already tattooed the O'Brien trophy on his bicep before the season, so maybe it's the start of a trend. Picture of the tattoo after the jump. (Safe for work, but maybe a little creepy.)

Mavs first-round pick Dominique Jones had surgery to address a stress fracture in the fifth metatarsal on his right foot Friday. The Mavs did not set a timetable for Jones' return, which seems to be the team protocol with injuries. It's likely that Jones' next significant minutes would come in summer league. Jones, whom the Mavs drafted after paying $3 million for the No. 25 overall pick, played in only 18 NBA games this season. He averaged 2.3 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 7.5 minutes per game. ESPN.com
