In a move that will probably not affect the balance of power in the Western Conference, the Mavericks announced today that forward Pops Mensah-Bonsu has been placed on waivers. If he gets through -- and there is little doubt that he will -- he will likely sign with an Italian team. The Mavericks had to make the move or else Pops salary would have been guaranteed for the season.
Mensah-Bonsu played in only 12 games for the Mavericks last season.
