Mavericks In "Advanced Talks" To Sign Point Guard

Things are close to a resolution as the Dallas Mavericks look to fill the role of third ballhandler. According to NBA Insider Marc Stein, the Mavs are in "advanced talks" with free agent point guard Facu Campazzo.

Campazzo spent the past two seasons as a backup with the Denver Nuggets, averaging 5.6 points and 3.5 assists in 20 minutes per contest. 

The Mavs have an open 15th and final roster spot, and the highlight-reel passer Campazzo appears to be in line to grab it. Dallas, of course, has most of their ballhandling duties spoken for by Luka Doncic and Spencer Dinwiddie, but Facu can certainly run the point when they're off the floor, or even be able to take some of the playmaking chores off of Luka at times, freeing him up to roam the floor off the ball.

Interestingly, however, despite the report from Stein, Mavs GM Nico Harrison said on Dallas radio this morning that he's "not really worried about us having a third ballhandler."

Not sure where this leaves the Campazzo negotiations, but we'll update this as it becomes available.
