Mavs Gaming is looking for practice squad members.
The team, which only has former first-overall pick Dimez on its roster, has the No. 5 and No. 14 picks in the first round of the NBA 2K League entry draft. The Mavs traded Dayfri to Wizards District Gaming in exchange for the No. 14 pick during the league’s first trade window.
The Mavs have overhauled their esports operations since last season. MPBA legend Toijuin “LT” Fairley replaced Jonah Edwards as head coach after the latter departed to coach Magic Gaming. The team is looking to hire an assistant coach. The front office has also changed significantly over the offseason. Trey Christensen joined the organization as Director of Esports, and Jonathan Miller has come on board as the Esports Marketing Manager.
