Former Spartan Drew Neitzel was one of two players cut by the Dallas Mavericks today as the NBA gets ready to begin the regular season.
In his first preseason game, Neitzel played four minutes and went 0-for-1 shooting. In his second game, he played 14 minutes and scored seven points on 3-for-6 shooting.
From Neitzel's Twitter account: "Disappointed but so blessed to be a part of the World Champs for the past 2 weeks. First class organization from top to bottom. #illbeback"
