Mavs rookie Nick Fazekas is finally going to get some much-needed playing time -- in the NBDL.
Tuesday morning the Mavs assigned their top draft pick -- 34th overall -- to their new affiliate, the Tulsa 66ers.
Fazekas has seen action in just two games. The Mavs are loaded on the bench with veterans, plus up-and-comer Brandon Bass plays Fazekas' position, so playing time is scarce.
The 66ers begin their season on Friday against Fort Wayne.
