Eddie Sefko reports that the Mavericks have agreed to a two-year deal with free agent Ian Mahinmi starting at the league minimum of $850,000. Mahinmi claimed that playing with Rodrigue Beaubois was a big factor for him.
Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle likes the player.
“He’s a young, athletic big guy that we like as a prospect,” Carlisle said. “He can help us a little now and we think he can get better.”
