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.
