In a bit of a surprise, the Mavericks and Devean George have agreed on a two-year deal to keep George in Dallas.
George and his agent had indicated that he was looking at offers from other teams and the Mavericks did not seem to be interested. But Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said by email that he expects George to play a big role on the team this season.
"We are are excited to have DGeorge back," Cuban wrote. "His ability to defend multiple positions and to get out and run will be of increasing value this year."
