After playing Monday’s game with the NBA D-League’s Texas Legends, veteran guard Mike James will sign a 10-day contract with the Dallas Mavericks, league sources confirmed to RealGM.
James will make his Mavericks debut on Wednesday night against the Clippers in Los Angeles.
James dropped 26 points on 10-for-20 shooting and four assists in 30 minutes in his first game with the Legends on Saturday, swiftly impressing the Mavericks’ front office. The Mavericks then waived Chris Douglas-Roberts on Sunday to create roster space for a 10-day deal.
James had a similar path back to the NBA last season when he played for the D-League’s Erie BayHawks before landing with the Chicago Bulls. At 37 years old, he has averages of 10.4 points and 3.6 assists over 10 NBA seasons.
ESPN first reported James’ deal with the Mavericks.
