Mavs Praise Shooting, Readiness Of Charlie Villanueva 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Dec 28, 2014 9:36 pm

Charlie Villanueva signed with the Dallas Mavericks to attend training camp on a non-guaranteed deal and earned a roster spot.


The Mavericks have praised Villanueva's readiness and shooting in limited minutes. He has has averaged 11.3 points in 13.9 minutes over the last four games.


“All he needs is minutes. He can fill it up,” small forward Chandler Parsons said. “He can really shoot the ball, probably our best shooter on the roster. He just has a knack for scoring and we need that.” 


Added power forward Dirk Nowitzki: “He’s got a flamethrower out there, and it’s always ready to roll. He’s been fun to watch.”  A


"Teams can’t lose him or leave him. If they do, he makes them pay for it," Tyson Chandler said.

He's like a Cardinal\Peja thing. He should be getting all 18 minutes behind Dirk.

I thought he was done after how he finished in Detroit, but he came in here and earned it, has filled in nicely as a backup PF, but they could still use somebody like JO as well.

A wasted talent. Edit - hopefully has realized that now and can do some good things with the Mavs.

I like how RealGM still has him in a Bucks uni.
