Found October 28, 2012 on Fox Sports Southwest:
DALLAS (AP) -- The Dallas Mavericks have waived forwardcenter Melvin Ely and forward Chris Douglas-Roberts, leaving them with still one roster move to make by Monday. The moves Sunday came only a day after Ely and Douglas-Roberts signed non-guaranteed contracts, and before they had even practiced with the team. That leaves Dallas with 16 players on the roster, one over the limit it has to get to a day before Tuesday night's season opener at the Los Angeles Lakers. The Mavericks are expected to permanently part with guard Delonte West, who last week was suspended indefinitely Thursday for unspecified conduct considered detrimental to the team. It was his second suspension this month.
