Mavs waive Tyrell Terry, Jones, Hunt

The Dallas Mavericks waived guards Tyrell Terry, Carlik Jones, and forward Feron Hunt, the team announced on Friday.

Terry was the 31st overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft by the Mavericks. He appeared in 11 games as a rookie last season. The second-year guard, who was away from the team for personal reasons, will be owed 1.5 million this season and $1.8 million next season. Hopefully, the 21-year-old Terry will get whatever help he needs going forward.

Hunt went undrafted in the 2021 NBA Draft after three seasons at Southern Methodist University. He played in all four preseason games for the Mavericks averaging 5.3 points and 1.8 rebounds. 

Jones went undrafted in the 2021 NBA Draft after a college career at Radford and Louisville. The Cincinnati native played in all four preseason games and averaged 6.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 2.0 assists.

In addition, Dallas signed forwards Justin Jackson and E.J. Onu.

Jackson was the 15th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by the Sacramento Kings and holds career averages of 6.6 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.1 assists with Sacramento, Dallas, Oklahoma City, and Milwaukee. The Houston native was previously traded to the Mavericks on Feb. 6, 2019, which sent Harrison Barnes to the Kings and finished that season with the Dallas in the NBA bubble. Last season, Jackson won an NBA championship as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks.  

The 6-11 Onu went undrafted in the 2021 NBA Draft after four years at Shawnee State, where he was named First Team NAIA All American while leading the Bears to an NAIA championship. Onu played in four games for the Mavericks at the MGM Resorts Summer League in Las Vegas, averaging 1.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks per contest.

Both Jackson and Onu will probably be headed to the G League.
