The Dallas Mavericks have reassigned rookie guard Jared Cunningham to the Texas Legends, the Mavericks’ NBA Development League affiliate. 

Cunningham returns to the Legends following an assignment earlier in the season when he played in seven games, and averaged 18.1 points, 3.0 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 37.0 minutes. 

In eight games for the Mavericks this season, Cunningham is averaging 2.0 points in 3.3 minutes per game. Originally selected in the first round (24th overall) of the 2012 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers, Cunningham’s rights were traded on Draft Night to the Mavericks.
