DALLAS -- In their attempt to continue to shore up their backcourt, the Dallas Mavericks signed rookie shooting guard Ricky Ledo to a four-year, $3.32 million contract Wednesday.
Only the first two years of the contract are guaranteed.
Ledo will be paid $550,000 in his first season with the Mavs and $816,482 in 2014-'15. He also has team options that'll pay him $942,276 in the 2015-'16 campaign and $1,015,696 in the '16-'17 season.
Ledo was the 43rd overall pick of last month's NBA Draft and joins the Mavs after never playing college basketball. The Mavs like the upside of the 6-7, 195-pounder who sat out his freshman season at Providence last year after the NCAA ruled he was academically ineligible
As a senior at South Kent. (Conn.) High School, Ledo averaged 23.4 points and 6.2 rebounds and was a Jordan All-American. He also was ranked as the No. 17 prospect in the nation and the country's No. 5 shooting guard.
In the Mavs' six games in the recent Las Vegas Summer League, Ledo averaged 7.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 21.5 minutes per game, and shot 35.6 percent from the floor.
