“I think DeAndre should be great for what we do for our system,” Nowitzki said. “When you’re in coach (Rick Carlisle’s) system the (center position) has a great roll presence, a great rim presence on both ends. “And there’s obviously not a lot (of centers) that are better at that – he might even be the best at that in the league. He’s a runner, he’s a rim protector, he’s a roller, he finishes as high above the rim as anyone, so we’re really looking forward to start working with him.”
Former NBA centers Dikembe Mutombo and Brendan Haywood believe the Dallas Mavericks hit a grand slam last Friday when they signed DeAndre Jordan to a one-year, $22.9 million contract. … Mutombo told Mavs.com that Jordan has the skills to clog up the middle and create havoc inside the paint for anyone with the audacity to drive to the basket. And that, he said, will be a huge bonus for the Mavs. “I like him,” said Mutombo, who played in the NBA from 1991-2009 and is in Las Vegas to watch the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League 20018. “If they can play the perimeter game and leave him in the middle by himself, that will give him the room to get 20-30 rebounds every night.”
