The Mavericks wasted no time filling a need – and the roster spot that will be created when Delonte West is waived – by putting in a waiver claim for veteran NBA center Eddy Curry, a source said.

The deadline for finalizing the 15-man roster that will start the season is Monday. The Mavericks have until then to waive West, who is suspended from the team for the time being.

Curry, 29, was the fourth overall pick in the 2001 draft, the same one that produced Tyson Chandler.

The Mavericks could be without Chris Kaman for the start of the regular season. Kaman will miss the Friday preseason finale against Charlotte with a strained right calf muscle.

By signing Curry, the Mavericks will have a 16-player roster. But they are expected to jettison West, either by cutting him or finding a willing trade partner, before Monday’s roster deadline.

Curry was waived by the Spurs on Tuesday.

i say we take the chance. you never know what dumb rules the Mavs had in place that got Delonte in trouble- yes he should have followed the rules, but maybe you dont blame him as much..

hes what the 2nd unit needs. someone who can shoot,attack and finish.. with Jamison playing the 3 in the 2nd unit, theres no garuntee that anyone in that unit will be able to create their own shot.. i know he will be interested in coming here tho, we have almost 20 mins to give him behind Nash, AND we can give him more minutes at the 2 , if Meeks isnt playing well on a certain night..

His game would translate well to this team's bench, his attitude is another story.

I think he needs to clear waivers

NBA teams can release a player to the waiver wire, where he can stay for 48 hours (during the regular season). While he is on waivers, other teams may claim him, for his existing salary. If he is not claimed, he is said to have "cleared waivers", and is treated like any free agent, able to sign with any team (with the special restriction noted above for players who were traded and then waived).

and meeks is NOT a combo gaurd! he cant dribble! hes strictly a shooter. and hes expanding his game to creating from the 3 point line but thats it. big difference from being able to handle it full court, or handle it for more than 2 dribbles, actually

i agree bro. BUT with Jamison playing the 3, is he gunna be able to create while being guarded by quicker defenders? im not confident from what ive seen. (i like Jamison alot at the 4)
our 2nd unit needs at least one player who can create...

West would be a major upgrade but at what risk though? he is a knucklehead that doesn't need to be on this team... I'm not even looking at him skill wise i'm looking at him attitude wise
