The Dallas Mavericks sign free agent Richard Jefferson

By Ricky Yandoli,

Veteran forward Richard Jefferson and the Dallas Mavericks have come to an understanding and will sign a one-year deal with the team.

Jefferson, who had a successful career with the New Jersey Nets, has bounced around during his past couple of years in the NBA. He has played for the Milwaukee Bucks, the San Antonio Spurs, the Golden State Warriors, and the Utah Jazz.

After losing Vince Carter to the Memphis Grizzlies in free agency, the Mavericks were looking for another wing player who could shoot the ball, reports ESPN. Jefferson will bring winning experience to Dallas because has been apart of teams that have reached the NBA finals on more than one occasion.

Even though Jefferson is not a high caliber player like he used to be, he still puts up decent stats for a 13-year veteran. Last season, he averaged 10.1 points per game, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.6 assists, according to NBA.com.
