After spending two seasons with Real Madrid, perhaps the best team in the world outside of the NBA, center Salah Mejri has agreed to a contract with the Mavericks.  

The 7′ 1″, 245 pound 29-year-old is the first Tunisian player in the NBA and was the first Arabic player in general to play in the Spanish ACB League, widely considered the second-best basketball league on the planet.
