The agent for Devean George said this morning that the 6-8 swingman has exercised his player option to remain with the Mavericks for next season.
That means George will be under contract for 2009-10 for $1.6 million.
That doesn't necessarily mean he will be on the roster come October. He remains a valuable trade chip if his salary is needed to make the numbers match up on any future deals.
Someday, if George can ever remain healthy enough for a full season, he is capable of producing for good teams. Here's hoping George has one of those seasons soon. After 10 years in the league, he's running out of time.
