Mavs Sign John Jenkins

FRIDAY, 2:33pm: The deal is official, the team announced via press release.

MONDAY, 7:03pm: Unrestricted free agent guard John Jenkins has reached agreement on a three-year deal with the Mavs, reports RealGM’s Shams Charania (on Twitter). The contract is partially guaranteed in the final two seasons and is at minimum salaries, Tim MacMahon of tweets.

The Hawks renounced their rights to Jenkins to clear cap space earlier this month. Jenkins was previously tied to the Spurs and Timberwolves. With Jenkins, the Mavs add a solid wing defender.

Jenkins, 24, a former first round pick, struggled for playing time in each of his three seasons in Atlanta, never averaging more than the 14.8 minutes per game he saw as a rookie in 2012/13. The Hawks declined their fourth-year option on his rookie scale contract this past fall, setting him up for unrestricted free agency this summer.
