Mavs sign veteran forward David Lee, waive John Jenkins
DALLAS (AP) The Dallas Mavericks have signed veteran forward David Lee and waived guard John Jenkins.
Lee joined Dallas on Monday after getting waived by Boston, where had he had fallen out of the rotation following an offseason trade with Golden State.
The 32-year-old Lee was a two-time All-Star, with New York in 2010 and the Warriors in 2013. But he was a seldom-used reserve when Golden State won the NBA title last season.
Lee has career averages of 14.4 points and 9.2 rebounds in 725 games but the 11th-year pro was down to 7.1 points with career lows of 4.3 rebounds and 15.7 minutes per game with the Celtics.
Jenkins signed as a free agent with Dallas in the offseason. The fourth-year player averaged 3.3 points in 21 games.
