In quest to rebuild roster, Mavs have become one of the NBA's most international teams

On Thursday, news came that the Mavericks have signed Germany's Maxi Kleber
to a partially guaranteed contract. While he apparently has no trouble
with English, and is from the same hometown as Dirk Nowitzki, it
extended the Mavericks' global reach once again.

Looking at the roster, there are seven international players who could show up for the
Mavericks' training camp in two months: Nowitzki, J.J. Barea, Dwight
Powell, Salah Mejri, Brussino, Kleber and Yanyuhang, although those last
three will have to earn their spots on the roster in camp.

(...) this batch of players born outside the U.S. is why the Mavericks spend a

small fortune on scouting around the globe. As Mark Cuban said
recently, only half hyperbolizing, "We're scouting third-graders in Nigeria."

They have one of the most multinational rosters in the league.
