Because he’s never been mired in a situation like this, where he has to fight to earn a spot on a team, Charlie Villanueva realizes he has to reinvent himself.

Villanueva knows that the 144 games he missed over the past three seasons due to back and ankle injuries have created havoc with his career. He also knows that’s why coaches and general managers aren’t swooning over him anymore like they were when he was the seventh overall pick of the 2005 NBA Draft.

“Now I’ve got to throw myself up, reinvent myself again,” Villanueva said Wednesday afternoon. “It’s not a problem. I’m actually looking forward to the opportunity.”

The Dallas Mavericks signed Villanueva to a non-guaranteed contract this summer.
