Mavs waive guards Randle, Neitzel

The Dallas Mavericks waived long-shot guards Jerome Randle and Drew Neitzel Thursday morning.

The 5-foot-10 Randle put up a good fight in the two preseason games, averaging 11.0 points and 2.0 assists in 18.0 minutes. He scored 17 points in Tuesday's loss at Oklahoma City.

Neitzel also played in both games.

The odds were heavily stacked against both players because of the veteran Mavs' depth.

The cuts take the roster down 14, leaving one spot open that the Mavs can use to explore possibly adding another center.
