DALLAS -– The Dallas Mavericks moved a step closer toward filling out their roster Saturday when they signed rookie guard Jared Cunningham to a three-year, $3,020,900 contract.
Under the NBA's rookie scale, Cunningham will be paid $963,600 this season and $1,007,000 during the 2013-'14 campaign. The Mavs hold a team option that will pay Cunningham $1,050,300 in the 2014-'15 season.
Cunningham was the 24th overall pick out of Oregon State last month. The 6-4 Cunningham averaged 17.9 points and 2.5 steals this past season when he was chosen first-team all-Pac 12.
The Mavs, who now have 13 players under contract, are expecting Cunningham to be a part of their rotation this coming season.
Forward Jae Crowder signed his rookie contract with the Mavs on Friday. With Cunningham’s signing, that leaves forward Bernard James – the 33rd overall pick – as the lone Mavs’ draftee yet to sign.
