The Mavericks have gone 17-16 against Western Conference teams. Dallas is 18-4 when outrebounding opponents and averages 43.6 rebounds per game. The Kings are 10-17 in conference games.
After moving into the starting lineup for two games with Richaun Holmes out, Damian Jones is being brought back to the Sacramento Kings on another 10-day contract, per reporting from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The Kings have yet to announce the deal, likely because today was an off day for the team. The official release will probably come before practice tomorrow or before Sacramento plays Dallas on Sunday to maximize Jones’ time with the squad.
On Friday night, the Boston Celtics announced that they had signed former number two overall pick, Jabari Parker. Parker last played for the Sacramento Kings, who waived him earlier in the season. After getting traded to the Kings during the middle of the 2019-20 season, Parker never found a home in Luke Walton's rotation with the Kings.
