Reports: Mavericks waiving, stretching JaVale McGee; re-signing Markieff Morris

Multiple NBA insiders are reporting that the Mavericks will not only stretch-and-waive center JaVale McGee before the Aug. 31 deadline, but additionally use that freed up roster spot to re-sign forward Markieff Morris.

NBA insider Marc Stein first reported the news about McGee being waived, while The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported the detail about the Mavericks re-signing Morris.

According to the new CBA rules (helpfully explained by Spotrac’s Keith Smart), instead of the Mavericks paying McGee $5.7 million this season and $6 million next season, the Mavericks will now have McGee on the books for $2.
