Mavs get Kevin Willis to take Mbenga's spot

Old dude, but was a good player and is still in good shape. He'll be good for 6 fouls if we need him against Shaq or Yao.

Thinking big
Pending physical, Mavs to sign 44-year-old Willis

Kevin Willis was a key reserve on the Spurs' championship team in 2003 and envisions a similar role with the Mavericks if he signs.

DALLAS (AP) -- The Dallas Mavericks will sign 44-year-old forward Kevin Willis to a 10-day contract Monday if he passes a physical.

Dallas coach Avery Johnson said Friday the 7-foot Willis would be signed to give the team another big man for the postseason.

"He'll be around our big guys at practice to bang on them," Johnson said. "Hopefully we can get him in good enough shape to play in an emergency and maybe give us a couple of fouls."

Willis is a veteran of 20 NBA seasons and played in 29 games for the Atlanta Hawks in 2004-05. He was not on an NBA roster last season.

Willis has averaged 12.2 points and 8.4 rebounds during his career, and he would be the oldest active player in the league if signed.

Actually, I think it's a genius move on their part. For what they need him for, he'll do just fine. What's he going to play, 8 minutes tops?
