Yi Jianlian, the 6-foot-10 Chinese forward the Mavericks have long coveted and have agreed to sign to a one-year deal, attended Monday's 100-87 win over the Thunder.

Coach Rick Carlisle said Jianlian will likely first be sent to the Frisco-based Texas Legends of the D-League and that a timetable for his debut with the Mavs isn't known.

"Time will determine that," Carlisle said. "It's going to take him awhile to get used to what we're doing. He may spend some time in the D-League initially. And so, I can't give an accurate answer right now as far as when exactly he's going to be up and on the roster."
