One regular roster spot and one two-way left

Kinda hoping he gets on the 15 man and Kostas gets the last two way to keep developing his game.

Then again there’s a lot of more developed vets sitting out there as UFAs so I wouldn’t be surprised if one of both of those guys ends up on the legends full time without a contract

So Dalton Trigg seems to think Spalding is actually going to beat out another player (likely Kleiber) for an actual spot on the team (no two-way), and the Mavs will leave that last roster spot open for either a cheap veteran who falls through the cracks or a trade later on in the season... From what I've seen in SL so far, I agree that there's a high likelihood of that happening.

I like Spalding. He's very fluid out there.

But I would be shocked if he gets anything other than a 2 way contract this year. We are trying to win games this year and it would be better for his development to play every game in the G-League

And on Spalding's contract status:

@fishsports: Source tells http://DallasBasketball.com that #Mavs plan to SIGN 2nd-round rookie Ray Spalding ( @RaySpalding_4 ) to either a 2-way or a multi-year deal near minimum with series of 'outs' and team options.

I love Spalding's game but we are getting a plethora of big men to go along with an abundance of PGs.
We basically have no decent wings that can defend other than Wes.

DFS could become a critical piece if Wes gets injured and that is a scary thought.

Based on this article it sounds like there is a chance that the Mavs sign Spalding to a multi year minimum contract and not just a 2-way contract.
