The Mavericks have officially signed No. 18 overall pick Josh Green to his first NBA contract, the team announced today in a press release.
Green, one of multiple Wildcats to declare for this year’s draft, was the first of three Arizona players selected on November 18, ahead of former teammates Zeke Nnaji and Nico Mannion. In 30 games (30.9 MPG) as a freshman, he averaged 12.0 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 2.6 APG, and 1.5 SPG with a .424/.361/.780 shooting line.
Assuming he signs for 120% of the standard rookie scale amount, as nearly every first-round pick does, Green will make $2.82MM as a rookie this season. His four-year deal will be worth about $13.64MM in total if his third- and fourth-year options are picked up.
The Mavericks also officially announced their two-way deal with Tyler Bey, which had been previously reported. As our roster counts page shows, Dallas has reached eight other contract agreements that aren’t yet official, so it’s safe to assume the club will be sending out a few more press releases pretty soon.
