I wonder if this is preemptive to a trade next week with Noel. I’m not sure why else this would be necessary since we already have Dirk and Maxi, plus Mejri, Powell, and Nerlens clogging up the 4/5

He will replace Noel's DNP-CD's? :P

Noel is having surgery which opens up that roster spot. Motley is on a two-way so he can jump back and forth between Legends and Mavericks.

Right, but why was there a need to make a move at all to replace someone who doesn’t play anyway?

I just hope Rick gives him a fair opportunity and doesn't pull him if he misses a shot or his plus/minus ever goes negative. If I understand the two-way contract correctly they are wasting an opportunity every game these guys suit up and don't play. Cleveland and Motley should be playing meaningful minutes every game, not just in garbage time and when 4 seconds are left in a quarter.

Hopefully Carlisle believes that he has a good work ethic because if not, he will be doomed to stay in the doghouse.
