Mavs release four players

The Mavericks released four players on Tuesday, requesting waivers on forward Renaldo Balkman, forward Devin Ebanks, wing D.J. Kennedy and center Fab Melo.

All four players were invited to camp on nonguaranteed deals and played sparingly during the preseason.

The Mavs' roster now has 16 players, one more than the maximum for the regular season. That includes 15 players with guaranteed contracts.
