DALLAS The Mavs' situation at point guard gets more unsettled by the moment. The latest bit of jostling: In what is apparently a mutually-agreed-to move, Dallas has waived Derek Fisher.
"I have asked the organization to waive me so I can return home," says Fisher, and that's that.
The Dallas Mavericks announced the transaction at 4:41 p.m. Saturday, saying simply that they have requested waivers on guard Derek Fisher. Fisher was signed as a free agent by Dallas on Nov. 29.
Fisher (6-1, 210) averaged 8.6 points, 3.6 assists and 25.4 minutes in nine games (all starts) for Dallas this season.
It's clearly a bit more complicated than that, however.
The Mavericks roster now stands at 14 players. Indications are that Dallas is set to call up Chris Douglas-Roberts from Frisco, where he was set to play on Saturday night for the D-League Legends. Douglas-Roberts is a former second-round NBA draftee who has played in 155 NBA games with the Nets and Bucks, making 53 starts.
