Mark Cuban addresses replacing Dirk Nowitzki
The Dallas Mavericks have found some post depth.
The Mavs and free agent center Boban Marjanovic agreed to a two-year, $7 million deal on Wednesday, according to multiple reports.
“You know what they say....EVERYTHING is bigger in Texas. @dallasmavs,” Marjanovic wrote on his Twitter handle.
Marjanovic, listed at 7-foot-3, 290 pounds, gives the Mavs much-needed depth at center. Dwight Powell is expected to start at center for the Mavs, and Kristaps Porzingis (who is projected to start at power forward) could see time at center as well.
Marjanovic, 30, has career averages of 6.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 0.4 blocks in 9.8 minutes in four NBA seasons. He averaged 7.3 points and 4.6 rebounds in 11.7 minutes per game for the LA Clippers and Philadelphia 76ers last sesason.
The Serbian most recently played for the 76ers, joining them following a trade from the Clippers in February. He’s also had stints with the San Antonio Spurs and Detroit Pistons.
Marjanovic has also been seen on the big screen with a role in the movie “John Wick 3.”
