With the NBA D-League season now just weeks away, the Dallas Mavericks are reportedly getting set to assign young gun Ricky Ledo to the Texas Legends. In other news, a Legends alumni is apparently ready to call it quits.

Though the NBA D-League season still won't begin for a couple of weeks now, such rosters are already beginning to take shape with training camp starting for many teams in the coming days.

In addition to some returning players and a handful of recently acquired affiliate players that have since been waived by the NBA parent club after training camp, big league clubs will also look to bolster their minor league affiliates by assigning various guns to the D-League throughout the season.

With that in mind, Dallas Mavericks' rookie Ricky Ledo may turn out to be one of the first assignments of the season, according to a recent report. Coach Rick Carlisle says it's likely he spends some time with the Texas Legends.

In other Legends-related news, NBA journeyman/ past Legends big man Dan Gadzuric will reportedly retire from The Association. That said, the linked tweet also says that the big man is considering picking things up by playing in Puerto Rico instead.

The 35 year old was last seen playing for the Lakers in training camp this fall, but previously averaged 12 points and 11.3 rebounds through twelve games for Texas during the 2011-12 season.
