DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Mavericks have added veteran Michael Kidd-Gilchrist to their young core as the club closes in on the playoffs for the first time in four years. Kidd-Gilchrist joins Dallas after taking a buyout in Charlotte. The 26-year-old was the No. 2 pick in the 2012 draft behind former Kentucky teammate Anthony Davis. The Mavericks have waived Ryan Broekhoff to make room for Kidd-Gilchrist. The eighth-year pro gives Dallas the size and experience to help defensively against elite forwards in the rugged Western Conference. Offense could be an issue for Kidd-Gilchrist, a 28% career shooter on 3-pointers.
