The Dallas Mavericks have signed swingman John Jenkins, according to the team's official website. Jenkins, 24, played for the Atlanta Hawks for three injury-plagued seasons, struggling to stay on the floor. 

Here's more on Jenkins from Bobby Karalla of Mavs.com:  

The guard missed a chunk of the 2013-14 season after suffering a leg injury, but bounced back nicely last season. During his rookie season in 2012-13, he displayed the ability to shoot the ball both as a stand-still, spot-up guy but also coming off screens. 

According to Synergy Sports, Jenkins hit 50.8 percent of his field goal attempts coming off screens that season, and the 1.028 points per possession he averaged in those scenarios ranked 12th in the league among players with at least 70 possessions played. Similarly, he shot 52.4 percent coming off screens last season in 12.4 minutes per game.
