Free agent center JaVale McGee signed with the Dallas Mavericks, the team said Thursday.
The 7-foot, 270-pound McGee is a seven-year veteran who appeared in 23 games for Denver and Philadelphia last season, averaging 4.6 points and 2.7 rebounds in 11.1 minutes per game.
He has career averages of 8.4 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 19.9 minutes per game in 382 games (158 starts), which included a stop in Washington.
McGee’s father, George Montgomery, was a second-round draft pick of the Portland Trail Blazers in 1985 and his mother, Pamela McGee, played in the WNBA for the Los Angeles Sparks and Sacramento Monarchs.
