Mike James will be sticking around.

The guard’s second 10-day contract expired after Sunday’s game, and the Mavericks had to make a decision about whether to keep him or cut him loose.

They elected to sign him for the rest of the season, meaning the roster will remain full with 15 players heading toward the trade deadline.

“He’s done a terrific, solid job since he’s been here, so it’s good news for us,” coach Rick Carlisle said.
