There is always a spot on a roster for a big who brings hustle and toughness off the bench.

The Dallas Mavericks have added that — maybe a guy who can be a small-ball, second-unit center — by reaching a deal with Quincy Acy. Shams Charania of The Vertical broke the news.

This is reportedly a deal for the league minimum.

This is a good signing at this price. Acy can play the four (or a small ball five) and is an athletic, hustling big who gave the Kings 5.2 points and 3.8 rebounds in nearly 15 minutes a game. Last season he took almost on three a game and hit 38.8 percent of them, he can also knock down 15 footers.

Dallas will start Dirk Nowitzki at the four, but after that will lean on Dwight Powell and Charlie Villanueva. Andrew Bogut will start at the five, then maybe Salah Mejri and A.J. Hammond get run. There are minutes to be had by Acy.
