Mavs adding Jarrid Famous

Free agent center Jarrid Famous has reached agreement on a partially guaranteed one-year contract with the Dallas Mavericks, league sources told RealGM. Famous, a skilled 6-foot-11 product, will join the Mavericks with a chance to make the regular-season roster after an impressive summer league with the Washington Wizards. The 27-year-old received significant interest overseas before his agreement with Dallas.
We’re still weeks away from the meat of the offseason, but agent Daniel Hazan says that teams are already expressing interest in bringing Famous to training camp. Famous’ last training camp experience is one that he’d probably like to forget. The Grizzlies were gung-ho about him in 2012, a year in which he played in the summer league for both the Pacers and the Bucks, but things were put on hold when Famous separated his left shoulder while dunking. Three years later, Jarrid Famous is 100% healthy and he says he’s more ready than ever for the stiff competition he’d face in an NBA team’s camp.
“I feel I belong in the NBA. I could have done the international thing all over again this year but I chose instead to stay here and train and do the things I need to improve in advance of training camp. Going overseas, I felt like I didn’t have the right people there pushing me. In years past, I would just go overseas and then jump right into camp or summer league. Now, I’m here, I’m preparing for camp at home and I already know that I’m going to be very well prepared for it all,” the Hazan Sports Management client explained (Jarrid Famous).
