Mavs send rookie Larkin to D-League

Posted Mar 14, 2014 8:42 PM

DALLAS (AP) -- The Dallas Mavericks sent rookie guard Shane Larkin back to the NBA Development League in another effort to get him playing time.

Larkin will be available for the Texas Legends on Saturday night against the Maine Red Claws in the Dallas suburb of Frisco. He will likely be back with the Mavericks on Sunday night in Oklahoma City.

The son of Hall of Fame shortstop Barry Larkin has seen a significant drop in playing time since Devin Harris returned from offseason toe surgery. He hasn't gotten off the bench in 10 of 21 games, and played more than 10 minutes just twice in that span.

Larkin is averaging 13.3 points, 7.3 assists and 6.0 rebounds in three games with the Legends.
