Mavs Sign Richard Jefferson

JULY 21ST: The deal is official, the team announced via press release.

JULY 13TH: Free agent Richard Jefferson is finalizing a one-year deal with the Mavericks, a league source tells Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports (via Twitter).  RJ’s deal is for the veteran’s minimum, according to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein (on Twitter).

Jefferson, 34, spent last season with the Jazz and averaged 10.1 PPG and 2.7 RPG in 27 minutes per contest.  Jefferson isn’t quite the player that he was during his Nets heyday, but the Mavs are getting a solid veteran piece for next to nothing.

While he won’t be making big bucks this season, RJ has plenty of money already in the bank.  According to Basketball-Reference, Jefferson has earned nearly $107MM over the course of his career.

A nice move to help replace Vince Carter.

I still remember that high powered Nets offense with Kidd, RJ, and Vincanity.

Funny how the Mavs keep bringing in players from the old NJ Nets. They traded to bring Jason Kidd back, couple years later signed Vince Carter, signed Devin Harris, then Carter leaves for Memphis and they sign Richard Jefferson. Maybe they can make a call and find out where Nenad Krstic is
