C.J. Fair Will Play For Dallas Mavericks' Summer League Team

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Fair will play for the Dallas Mavericks's team in the Las Vegas Summer League.

A day after his hopes of being drafted were dashed, C.J. Fair still found an NBA team that wanted him. The Syracuse Orange forward will play for the Dallas Mavericks in the Las Vegas Summer League.

"Dallas really wanted to bring him in,'' Fair's agent, Torrel Harris, said. "I think this is a good spot for him.''

"The Mavericks have a genuine interest in C.J.,'' Harris said. "They were going to pick him. They want him.''

That's all you can really ask for and, truth be told, it's no less or more than what C.J. would have gotten had he been taken late in the 2nd Round.

Syracuse.com notes that the Mavericks traded their second round picks to the Knicks, implying that if they hadn't, they might have taken Fair then. But it's a moot point anyway.

Joining C.J. in Las Vegas will be James Southerland and the New Orleans Pelicans as well as Brandon Triche, who got an invite from the New York Knicks.
