The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have signed free agent guard Jameer Nelson. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. Nelson (6-0, 190) is a 10-year veteran and former NBA All-Star (2009) who has spent his entire career with the Orlando Magic. He has career averages of 12.6 points, 5.4 assists, 3.1 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 29.2 minutes in 651 games (556 starts) with the Magic. Nelson stands as the franchise’s all-time leader in assists with 3,501. He also ranks second in games played (651) and field goals attempted (7,033), third in minutes played (19,038), three-pointers made (874) and three-pointers attempted (2,335), fourth in scoring (8,184 points) and field goals made (3,109) and fifth in steals (619). mavs.com

Meanwhile, two sources said the Mavericks were preparing to welcome 6-foot Jameer Nelson to town on Thursday. He is expected to take a physical and if everything is in order, will sign with the Mavericks for their cap-room exception of $2.7 million. They also reached an agreement on a two-year, $2.1 million contract with New Orleans free agent Al-Farouq Aminu, who has a nose for rebounding and defense but is limited offensively. He would be an option when it comes to guarding the toughest offensive matchups in the Western Conference such as Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant. Dallas Morning News

What were the three days like waiting to see if the Rockets were going to match? Chandler Parsons: It was definitely a crazy time, just not knowing where I'm gonna go. Before this whole process started, they had told me 'You've earned this. You deserve this. Go and sign the best deal for your career. Just know in the back of your mind that we plan on matching.' Throughout the process, I definitely thought they were gonna match the contract. But Mark and my agent really put together a tough contract for them to be able to match. Me, individually, I thought it was a perfect situation for me to take that next step. I'm ready for a bigger role. I'm ready for more leadership. I have nothing but respect for coach Carlisle. Dirk's one of my favorite players of all time growing up. Having all those things tied into Dallas, it was a no brainer for me to sign that contract as soon as possible. Dallas Morning News
