Real Madrid is finalizing the signing of Salah Mejri, as reported by El Espanol’s Jorge Calabres.

Mejri, who becomes a free agent on June 30, hopes to return next season for his fifth year with the Mavs. He sees a huge turnaround coming for the Mavs next season, especially with the addition of 7-3 center Kristaps Porzingis, who was acquired in a blockbuster trade with the New York Knicks on Jan. 31. “I worked a little bit with Kristaps one-on-one,” said Mejri, who turns 33 on Saturday. “Maybe I’m the only guy on the team who can play with him, because of his height and length. He’s way taller than (the 6-11) Maxi (Kleber), and people who are going to guard (Porzingis) are 7-footers. He’s long and he’s good. He reminds me of Dirk (Nowitzki), but he’s way longer than Dirk.”

When asked specifically if this is one of those games where Simmons’ absence is felt, Rivers quickly dismissed that thought. “I don’t worry about that,” he quickly said. “Ben’s not here, so yeah. If we would’ve won the game, so, no. I don’t do that.”
