The Dallas Mavericks have waived guard Andy Rautins five days after he was acquired in a three-team trade that sent Tyson Chandler to the New York Knicks.

Rautins was acquired along with a 2012 second-round draft pick from Washington, while New York got Chandler and the draft rights to Ahmad Nivins and Giorgos Printezis from Dallas.

Washington received forward Ronny Turiaf, a 2013 second round pick and cash considerations from New York and a 2012 second round pick from Dallas.

Rautins was a second-round pick out of Syracuse by the Knicks in 2010.

Born in the U.S., Rautins is a Canadian citizen who's played for the national team since 2005.
