Mavs Beat Grizzlies, Cut Roster to 18

Last night the Mavericks finished their home pre-season schedule by beating the Grizzlies.

This morning they continued putting the finishing touches on their roster.

The Mavs waived forward Eric Griffin and guard Yuki Togashi, trimming their roster to 18. They must be down to 15 by Monday at 4 p.m.

Griffin shined in the Summer League but only played in two exhibition games, while the 5 foot 7, 145-pound Togashi was just signed last week.

The Japanese point guard will likely wind up in the NBA’s Development League playing for the Texas Legends in Frisco.

A native Texan who was born in Duncanville and graduated from UT-Arlington, Richie Whitt has been a mainstay in the Metroplex media since 1986. He’s held prominent roles on all media platforms including newspaper (Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Dallas Observer), radio (105.3 The Fan) and TV (co-host on TXA 21 and numerous guest appearances, including NBC 5). He currently lives in McKinney with his wife, Sybil, and two very spoiled dogs.
