The Dallas Mavericks have recalled Jared Cunningham from the D-League.

Cunningham averaged 18.1 points, 2.9 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 37 minutes for the Legends.

“I think it's good to have high energy athletic guys around,'' Rick Carlisle said. “He had a stint in the D-League, he got a chance to play some minutes, so now he'll be back with us until -- if and when -- we decide to have him go back down.''

Cunningham will be battling Darren Collison, Dominique Jones and Rodrigue Beaubois for playing time.

“He did some good things [for the Legends] and he got some good minutes,'' Carlisle said of Cunningham. “That's important."
