MONDAY, 2:01pm: The Mavericks will sign Mike James to a 10-day contract after the Texas Legends' game today, according to ESPN.com's Marc Stein (via Twitter). James had recently signed with the D-League squad hoping to impress the Mavs and earn another shot in the NBA.
In his lone game for the Legends so far, James helped lead the club to a comfortable victory over the Tulsa 66ers, pouring in 26 points in three quarters. He'll join a Dallas team that was seeking a veteran for its backcourt after losing Derek Fisher (Twitter link via Stein).
James, 37, has appeared in 539 NBA games since making his debut back in 2001. Last season, he signed a pair of 10-day contracts from the Bulls in 2012 before inking a deal for the remainder of the season.
