JULY 8th, 7:28pm: The Mavericks announced the signing is official via press release.

JULY 3rd, 10:19pm: Dwight Powell has agreed to a four-year, $37MM deal to remain with the Mavericks, tweets Shams Charania of The Vertical. The contract includes a player option for the final season (Twitter link).

The second-year forward appeared in 69 games for the Mavericks in 2015/16, averaging 5.8 points and 4.0 rebounds per night. He came to Dallas in a 2014 trade with the Celtics.

Powell, 24, may see an increased role on the Mavericks’ front line next season with the loss of Chandler Parsons in free agency and the uncertain status of free agents Zaza Pachulia, David Lee and Charlie Villanueva.

    Wow….not sure what I think about this. Seems high on one hand, but compared to other signings it seems reasonable. I still can’t get used to the new salary cap…

      What do they have to give up? They could give up a pick but at this point they would want to hang on to those.

        i am surprised no team has gave the bucks a great offer for monroe considering with the cap increase his contract is a good deal. i would of loved the rockets to over beverly/dekker and tjones before the bucks over paid for belladova they may have taken that deal as beverly contract actually decreases as the years go by

      Like Lakersfan said, we have nothing to trade for them. Id love to see Monroe in Dallas, but we’d have to S&T something of worth to get him. Only thing I can think that we’d want to part with right now might be Zaza in S&T plus a second rounder. We can’t afford to lose many first rounders anymore.
