Charles Rhodes Signed To Dallas Mavericks Training Camp Roster

Posted by Kyle Weidie on October 1, 2008

Former Mississippi State Bulldog Charles Rhodes was one of four additions the Dallas Mavericks made to their training camp roster on Tuesday. The Mavericks also signed Reyshawn Terry, Cheyne Gadson, and former Tennessee Vol, JuJuan Smith. Dallas’ training camp roster now stands at 19. NBA teams are allowed to keep 15 players, 12 max can dress for games, during the regular season.

It was last reported that Rhodes was being courted by one of Spain’s top professional teams, Regal FC Barcelona, after being drafted by the Continental Basketball Association. However, having suited up for the Mavericks in both the Las Vegas and Rocky Mountain Revue NBA Summer Leagues, Rhodes has opted to take his chances with a try-out for an NBA team.

By most accounts, Rhodes impressed the Dallas brass enough with his summer league play to earn a spot at camp. Most likely, he will be competing with other big forwards, Terry and James Singleton, who is currently signed to a guaranteed contract, for the last roster spot.

Rhodes will join former Bulldog Erick Dampier in training camp, which will held at Southern Methodist University. Good luck to Chuck and check back with Bulldog Maroon & White for updates on his progression with the Mavs.

[Update] Marcus Campbell, who didn’t really play for the Miami Heat during the summer, is evidently in training camp with the Houston Rockets.
