According to a league source, the Mavericks are in the mix for veteran point guard Tyronn Lue, who was waived by Sacramento on Friday.
The source said Denver and Phoenix are also interested in the 10th-year player out of Nebraska. Lue, who was acquired by the Kings in the trade that sent Mike Bibby to Atlanta, can sign with another team Tuesday and be eligible for the playoffs because he was waived by Friday’s deadline.
The Mavs have an open roster spot and some minutes available at backup point guard, where J.J. Barea and Devean George have played recently.
Lue, 6-0, 175 pounds, averaged 6.8 points and 1.8 assists in 33 games this season.
