Mavericks Sign Justin Dentmon

MONDAY, 11:06am: The Mavericks have officially signed Dentmon to a 10-day deal, the team announced today in a press release.

SATURDAY, 11:45am: The Mavericks are set to sign Justin Dentmon to a 10-day contract, according to's Marc Stein (on Twitter).  Dentmon will fill the spot left by Chris Wright since the Mavs are not going to re-sign him to a second 10-day deal.

The Mavs are quite familiar with Dentmon, who plays for their D-League affiliate Texas Legends.  The 27-year-old has been strong in 2012/13, averaging 22.3 PPG, 4.0 RPG, and 3.7 APG this season for the Legends and the Austin Toros.  Last year, Dentmon received 10-day contracts with the Spurs and Raptors and was named the MVP of the D-League.

Dallas is apparently looking to audition multiple guards between now and the end of the season.  After Dentmon they'll likely test out one more backcourt option before making a final determination.
