Mavericks sign Sasha Pavlovic to 10-Day Contract

 

Filling the SF void in Dallas

In an attempt to fill the void left by the recent season-ending injury sustained by swingman Caron Butler, the Dallas Mavericks have signed forward Sasha Pavlovic to a 10-day contract.

 

Pavlovic is in his seventh season after being selected 19th overall in the 2003 draft by the Utah Jazz. He has career averages of 5.5 points per game, 1.9 rebounds, and one assist. The Mavericks had an open roster space after waiving Steve Novak last week.

This is by no means the move that many expect the Mavericks to make to replace Butler. It is simply a move to fill a vacant position on the roster. Since Butler went down, Dallas has been playing with out a small forward on its roster. DeShawn Stevenson has been filling in at the three, as the Mavericks continue to play without Dirk Nowitzki, despite being better suited to play shooting guard.
