Mavericks waive Macon to create two-way opening

The Dallas Mavericks have waived guard Daryl Macon, the team announced in a news release.

Macon spent last season as a rookie on a two-way contract, averaging 3.6 points in eight appearances.

He fared well in 41 games with the Texas Legends, the Mavericks' affiliate in the G League. The 6-foot-3 combo guard averaged 19.0 points and 6.2 points for the Legends.

Macon went undrafted out of Arkansas in June after averaging 16.8 points and 3.7 assists, while shooting 44.7 percent from the field, 42.1 percent from the 3-point arc and 87.5 percent from the free-throw line.

The Mavericks signed Antonius Cleveland to a two-way contract earlier in the week. After waiving Macon, they now have one more two-way slot available.
