DALLAS -â" The Dallas Mavericks moved a step closer toward filling out their roster Saturday when they signed rookie guard Jared Cunningham to a three-year, $3,020,900 contract.
Under the NBA's rookie scale, Cunningham will be paid $963,600 this season and $1,007,000Â during the 2013-'14 campaign. The Mavs hold a team option that will pay Cunningham $1,050,300 in the 2014-'15 season.
Cunningham was the 24th overall pick out of Oregon State last month. The 6-4 Cunningham averaged 17.9 points and 2.5 steals this past season when he was chosen first-team all-Pac 12.
The Mavs, who now have 13 players under contract,Â are expecting Cunningham to be a part of their rotation this coming season.
Forward Jae Crowder signed his rookie contract with the Mavs on Friday. With Cunninghamâs signing, that leaves forward Bernard James â" the 33rd overall pick â" as the lone Mavsâ draftee yet to sign.
