The Dallas Mavericks and post Dwight Powell will reportedly agree on a 3-year deal worth $33 million when NBA free agency officially begins at 5 p.m. on Sunday, according to the New York Times’ Mark Stein.

Powell averaged 10.6 points and 5.3 rebounds while shooting 59.7 percent from the field last season. He was unquestionably one of the Mavs’ most productive players off the bench all season.

His ability to stretch the floor with an improved perimeter stroke has made him all the more valuable as Dallas ushers in this new era of basketball without Dirk Nowitzki and with young stars Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis.
