DALLAS (AP) _ The Dallas Mavericks waived veteran forward Terry Mills on Monday, a day before training camp begins.

Coach Don Nelson said Mills requested the move. Mills, a 10-year pro, never played a game in Dallas.

Mills was acquired from Detroit by the Mavericks in an Aug. 29 trade in which Dallas also got Christian Laettner in exchange for Cedric Ceballos, John Wallace and Erick Murdock.

Also Monday, the Mavericks signed guard Mike Jones and forward Jamal Kendrick to free agent contracts. Terms were not disclosed.

Jones, a 1998 Texas Christian graduate, played the last two years in China.

Kendrick, who played Midwestern State in Wichita Falls, Texas, competed in the IBA last season.
