Mavs' quickie camp starts Saturday

The Mavericks have their media day Friday and get to work the next morning.

The Mavs will squeeze six practices into four days to prepare their potluck roster for the team's two-game trip to Europe.

The Mavs will practice twice on Saturday and Monday with single sessions on Sunday and Tuesday before flying overseas. The Mavs will practice at the American Airlines Center unlike previous camps, when they used the facilities at North Texas and SMU.

They'll play Alba Berlin in Dirk Nowitzki's native Germany on Oct. 6 and FC Barcelona in Spain on Oct. 9 before returning to Dallas.
