JULY 13, 10:39pm: The Mavericks have agreed to a deal with unrestricted free agent point guard Jonathan Gibson, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports (via Twitter). It will be a three-year pact that includes guarantees, Charania adds. The scribe’s report doesn’t specify the type or amount of the guarantees, nor which years of the arrangement they cover.
Gibson, 28, has been playing for Dallas’ summer league squad, making three appearances and averaging 22.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 29.5 minutes of action. He’s shooting .511/.440/1.000 from the field in Las Vegas this summer.
The guard went undrafted out of New Mexico State in 2010 after completing his senior campaign. He has primarily played overseas since then, spending the 2015/16 season in China with Qingdao. Gibson appeared in 36 games for the Double Star Eagles this past season, averaging 42.0 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.1 assists on 46.7% shooting overall.
