The Dallas Mavericks waived swingman Ricky Ledo on Wednesday to clear a roster spot for forward/center Amar’e Stoudemire.

Stoudemire, whose contract was bought out by the New York Knicks on Monday, officially signed with Dallas after clearing waivers for a prorated veteran minimum of approximately $460,000.

Ledo was selected by the Mavericks in the second round of the 2013 draft, but he spent most of the subsequent time playing for the Texas Legends of the NBA Development League. He appeared in five games for Dallas this season, missing all six of his shots from the floor and scoring one point.

Last season, Ledo played in 11 games with the Mavericks and averaged 1.7 points.

Stoudemire is expected to make his Mavericks debut Thursday against the Thunder in Oklahoma City as a backup to center Tyson Chandler and forward Dirk Nowitzki.

The 32-year-old Stoudemire averaged 12.0 points and 6.8 rebounds per game for the Knicks this season, below his career averages of 20.0 points and 8.2 rebounds.
