Shane Larkin on the D-League shuttle train

It’s a win-win situation when some of the Mavericks’ young players can drive up the tollway and play a home game for the Texas Legends in Frisco. It helps the D-League team and it helps the players get some needed game-situation work.

Shane Larkin will play Saturday for the Legends against Maine at Dr Pepper Arena as the Mavericks re-assigned him on Friday.

It extends a trend of sending players to the Legends, who obviously get a bump in attention and upgraded play when Mavericks end up on their roster.
Jae Crowder and Bernard James have put in cameo appearances at Frisco as well. Ricky Ledo has been there most of the season.

Larkin has played 42 games for the Mavericks and is averaging 2.9 points and 1.6 assists in 11.1 minutes per contest.

This will be his fourth assignment to the D-League. Larkin has seen action in three Legends’ games and holds averages of 13.3 points, 7.3 assists, 6.0 rebounds and 35.6 minutes.
