Mavs re-sign Devean George
Dallas, TX (Sports Network) – The Dallas Mavericks signed veteran swingman
Devean George on Thursday.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team, however, according to the
Dallas Morning News, George agreed to a one-year deal worth $2.5 million.
The 29-year-old averaged 6.4 points and 3.6 rebounds in 60 games last
season for a Dallas team that dominated in the regular season but was stunned
by Golden State in the opening round of the playoffs.
George originally opted out of the final year on his existing two-year deal
last month to become an unrestricted free agent, but returns to the fold
looking to rebound from a rocky second half of the year which saw him
slowed by a knee injury.
The 23rd overall pick of the Lakers in the 1999 NBA draft, George won three
titles in seven campaigns with Los Angeles before coming to Dallas prior to
the start of the 2006-2007 season.
