The Dallas Mavericks and Richard Jefferson have reached an agreement on a one-year minimum contract, a league source confirmed to CBSSports.com's Ken Berger. Jefferson will presumably play a similar role to the departed Vince Carter, who agreed to a deal with the Memphis Grizzlies.
Jefferson averaged 10.1 points and 2.7 rebounds in 27 minutes per game for the Utah Jazz last season, shooting 45 percent from the field and 41 percent from the three-point line. It was a bounceback season after struggling to contribute for the Golden State Warriors in 2012-2013.
It's unlikely that Jefferson will play big minutes for Dallas, but if the 34-year-old can simply shoot threes with similar accuracy this season, he's a fine pickup for the minimum.
