Not even the prospect of an injury, which could interfere with his plans and affect his contract status, is enough to keep James off the Mavs’ summer league roster. “Knock on wood, but I managed to stay healthy pretty much throughout college and these last two years in the NBA,” James said after Monday’s practice at American Airlines Center. “So I’m not really worried about it. “I know how to take care of my body.” Fort Worth Star-Telegram

James knows the summer league route is his best chance to get a leg up on the competition and prove that he’s worthy of receiving more minutes. “I feel like contractually it’s the same as the last two summers,” James said. “The first year I wasn’t guaranteed a contract, the second year it was a team option. “And this year I’m a free agent, so for me it’s the exact same situation. I’m playing for a contract, so that’s the way I’m going to go out there and play. That’s my mindset.” The 29-year-old James, who spent six years in the U.S. Air Force, knows what he must improve to earn more court time. Fort Worth Star-Telegram
