Mavericks To Sign Wesley Iwundu To Two-Year Deal

7:39pm: Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports (via Twitter) that Iwundu is headed to Dallas on a two-year deal, while Zach Lowe of ESPN tweets that it’ll be worth the veteran’s minimum.

7:13pm: Free agent swingman Wesley Iwundu is nearing a new deal with the Mavericks, tweets Shams Charania of The Athletic. Terms of the agreement haven’t been released, but Iwundu made $1.6MM last season with the Magic.

Iwundu’s contract will be fully guaranteed, a source tells Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News (Twitter link). That source confirms that J.J. Barea will be brought back and says the team still has an open roster spot to fill.

Iwundu, 25, spent the past three seasons in Orlando, where he was a valuable rotation piece and a part-time starter. He averaged 5.8 points and 2.5 rebounds last season in about 18 minutes per night.

    Dallas does really good job at finding hidden talent. Not saying he will be a starter but off the bench he could be really great for us!

    another really good pickup by Dallas. I think they’re going to be significantly better. They went from almost no defense or depth on their wing to having arguably a little bit of a surplus. Regardless, it should allow their new young wings a chance to develop without as much pressure
