Mavs add 3 to roster as training camp approaches

The Associated Press

DALLAS (AP) -- The Dallas Mavericks have added center Fab Melo, guard-forward D.J. Kennedy and guard Richard McConnell to their roster for training camp.

Melo was a first-round pick by Boston last year and played six games for the Celtics. The 7-footer spent most of the season with Maine in the NBA Development League. He was traded to Memphis for Donte Green in August and waived by the Grizzlies two weeks later.

Kennedy helped Rio Grande Valley win the D-League championship last season. He played two games for Cleveland during the 2011-12 season and scored 12 points in his debut with the Cavaliers.

McConnell played in Italy last season, averaging 13.6 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists for Tezenis VE.

The Mavericks now have 17 players. Training camp starts Oct. 1.
