Von Wafer, who tried out for the Mavericks last week with Rashad McCants, arrived in Dallas on Sunday night, using his Twitter account to announce his arrival. Wafer, a long-distance shooter who averaged 9.7 points off the bench for the Rockets last season but has been out of the league this season, is expected to take a physical Monday.
He has a bulging disk issue in his back and failed a physical with the Rockets in December. If he passes, Wafer could sign a 10-day contract. The Mavs have two roster spots open.
Wafer, an active tweeter, said he hopes he signs and thanked "Mr. Cuban" and "Mr. Nelson" for giving him a chance.
