Dallas Mavericks Roster Report 2008-10-05

Dallas Mavericks Roster Report 2008-10-05
DRAFT PICKS: Shan Foster, G, 6-6, Vanderbilt -- Athletic swingman with above-average three-point range who will play in Italy this season.


--G Jerry Stackhouse presented a check for $50,000 from his Triple Threat Foundation to the Lenoir Memorial Foundation to benefit the Diabetes Program at the Minges Wellness Center in the Lenoir Memorial Hospital (Kinston, NC).

The donation will create an endowment that will provide three nursing scholarships in honor of his two sisters who passed away from diabetes related complications. The diabetes program will be renamed after his mother, Minnie Stackhouse, who also suffers from diabetes.

Stackhouse founded the Triple Threat Foundation in 2002 to increase funding for diabetes-related research, patient care and prevention; promote the importance of daily physical activity and maintain a proper diet; and encourage behavioral changes that lesson the risk of diabetes and other serious medical conditions caused by obesity.

--F Josh Howard made a court appearance in Winston-Salem, N.C., recently to have his case rescheduled. Howard entered the District Court through a side door after his request to skip the appearance was denied, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

He was charged with speeding, reckless driving and racing July 31. His case was reset for Nov. 7, the same night the Mavs are scheduled to play at Denver.

--G Eddie Jones has fallen behind in the first camp under Rick Carlisle. The veteran strained his left hamstring running on a treadmill before camp began and wasn't ready to participate in drills as it opened.

"I can't even run right now," he said after the first day of practice. "But I'd rather have it happen now than in January."

--F Charles Rhodes, a free-agent rookie, has been invited to training camp. The 6-8, 245-pound bruiser played four seasons at Mississippi State, and finished his career ranked 11th all-time in points (1,451) and rebounds (691), and sixth in blocks (143).

Rhodes earned his spot after a strong showing in summer league play. He averaged 10.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 19.0 minutes in five games in Las Vegas. At the Rocky Mountain Revue, he contributed 8.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 22.5 minutes while shooting 59.4 percent from the field and 93.3 percent from the free throw line.
