PHILADELPHIA (AP) Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 points, Shawn Marion had 22 and the Dallas Mavericks beat undermanned Philadelphia 124-112 on Friday night, handing the 76ers their 10th straight loss.

A day after dismantling the roster and trading away Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen, the Sixers had just eight players in uniform.

Thaddeus Young scored 30 and Michael Carter-Williams had 25 for Philadelphia, which has looked toward next season and beyond since training camp.

The Sixers, who have the NBA's second-worst record, made four trades before Thursday's deadline, giving up three players and a draft pick for five players and six second-round draft picks between 2014 and 2018.

They're hoping for a top-3 draft pick and trying to clear space under the salary cap to make a run at quality free agents.
