The Dallas Mavericks’ new 2-Way deal with wing Antonius Cleveland, an undrafted rookie out of Southeast Missouri State, is, GM Donnie Nelson tells DallasBasketball.com, the result of a trickle-down effect. “We certainly like Antonius,’’ Nelson tells us. “But this is also about ‘Dodo.’’ “Dodo’’ is Dorian Finney-Smith, the Mavs’ defensive-minded wing, himself an undrafted free agent from a year ago who is carving out for himself an NBA career … but who is presently being shut down by the Mavs due to a knee injury.

Nick Friedell: Thibs wanted no part of giving a timeframe on Butler’s absence but Taj offered this observation. At a minimum it appears as if Butler will miss multiple weeks. Taj: “The doctors are saying some good things so we’ll see in a few weeks maybe.”
KC Johnson: Taj Gibson on Jimmy Butler: “He was talking so much trash on the plane, you didn’t even really think he was hurt. He came in today making jokes, being his normal self. I think he’s fine mentally.”
Darren Wolfson: Jimmy Butler is a real mensch. He’s spending time with a young man who’s battling health hurdles. A torn meniscus wouldn’t keep Jimmy from such a commitment (photo from @jbrioschi). #Twolves #AllEyesNorth
