Offseason: Free Agency | Latest from Ken Berger | Rumors

CSN Northwest reports that the Mavericks, after waiving Rashard Lewis have agreed to terms with Pelicans forward Al-Farouq Aminu.

It's terrific value for a player who's only 23 and averaged 7.2 points and 6.2 rebounds per game last season for New Orleans. He's an athletic defender who can get out in transition and for a team that could be losing Shawn Marion in free agency, they need a rebounding defensive forward. Aminu worked his tail off in New Orleans to become a capable rotation player, adding an offensive game that at least makes him a non-negative-if-not-plus on that end of the floor.

It's another good value signing for a team that has had a reat offseason.
