Ivan Johnson missed practice with an illness on Wednesday.

The Mavericks signed Ivan Johnson this off-season to a two-year deal after he spent the 2013-14 season playing in China. Johnson averaged 7.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 4.4 fouls while playing with the Mavericks Summer League team, but the 6'10" bruiser did enough to earn a shot at the regular season roster. He will struggle to get playing time behind Dirk Nowitzki, Tyson Chandler, Brandan Wright and Greg Smith on the depth chart.

Mavericks signed G Doron Lamb to their training camp roster. 

Through two seasons, Lamb has failed to stick with either the Magic or the Bucks. He'll be given an opportunity to join the Mavericks, but considering their depth at the guard position, he's going to have to show something fierce.

Mavericks sign Dominican guard Victor Liz.

The Mavericks already have their 15-man roster limit met and brought in Charlie Villanueva on a non-guaranteed deal. That is probably the same case for Liz who averaged 6.5 points per game during the basketball World Cup. The team will take a look and see what happens during training camp.

Mavericks sign Charlie Villanueva to a non guaranteed deal. 

Dig the Mavericks new logo. It looks hip and cool. However, signing Charlie-V is anything but hip and cool. This is a non-guaranteed deal so the Mavericks can still cut him before the season starts. Would be shocked if he made the team and even if he does make the team, he does not have any fantasy value.

Raymond Felton has been suspended first four games of the season for guilty pleas to gun charges.

Felton plead guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm in late July, so this suspension handed down by commissioner Adam Silver is well-deserved, if not maybe a little light if you want to set an example. The 30-year old Felton will miss the fist four games of the season and then continue to compete with Devin Harris and Jameer Nelson for minutes on the court.

Doron Lamb will join the Mavericks for training camp

Lamb was waived by the Magic earlier this offseason. He has slim odds of making the Dallas squad for the upcoming season.

Dallas Mavericks have signed big man Ivan Johnson. 

One of the meanest looking dudes in the NBA has found a new home. The Mavericks needed some more physical players and they get that in Johnson. He doesn't have any fantasy value because he's a bench player that grabs a few rebounds, but does nothing else.

The Mavericks announce the official signing of Jameer Nelson. 

Nelson will take the spot of Jose Calderon in being the floor general for the Mavericks next season and still has plenty left in the tank to be a solid fantasy contributor. However, until we see how he fits in the team's offensive scheme it is hard to tell just how many shots will be left over for him playing along side Dirk Nowitzki.
