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.

Dirk Nowitzki is always excited this time of the year, but the start of the NBA season isn’t the only reason on this occasion. He’s about to become a father for the third time as he and wife Jessica are expecting the new addition in the next few weeks. “Almost here,” said Nowitzki, who preferred not to divulge whether a boy or girl is on the way. “It’s been one after the other. But it’s fun. The big one is over 3 now. The little one is a little over 1½. So it’s busy at the house and it’s going to be even busier, but I really enjoy it. They go nuts when papa comes home. It’s the greatest feeling in the world. But obviously it’s busy.”
