Once Orlando Magic guard Terrence Ross completes a contract buyout, the Dallas Mavericks have emerged as front runners to sign him as a free agent, sources told ESPN on Saturday.
Ross, 32, is expected to join a Mavericks bench who will need to fill in their backcourt depth following a trade to take on Kyrie Irving last week.
As long as Ross agrees to a buyout by March 1, he can be included on his new team’s playoff list.
Ross has played seven seasons in Orlando and has shot 38% on 3-pointers this year. Ross played his first five NBA seasons with the Toronto Raptors, averaging 11 points and 36% 3-point shooting throughout his career.
