Mavericks send trio to D-League for playing time

AP - Sports

DALLAS (AP) -- The Dallas Mavericks have assigned Jae Crowder, Shane Larkin and Bernard James to the NBA Development League for a likely one-game stay and have recalled Ricky Ledo.

All three regulars on the Dallas roster were set to be available for a home game Thursday night for the team's D-League affiliate in suburban Frisco. The Mavericks play at home Friday night against Chicago.

Crowder has started eight games for Dallas but has played less than 3 minutes combined in the past three games, including sitting out one entirely.

Larkin, a rookie first-round pick, has seen a significant drop in playing time since veteran Devin Harris returned. James has played sparingly all season.

Ledo has bounced between Dallas and the D-League the past several weeks.
