George (6-8, 235) played 60 games starting 17 times for Dallas in 2006-07 after signing as a free agent on August 2, 2006. In total, he averaged 6.4 points, 3.6 rebounds and 0.77 steals in 21.4 minutes. He shot 39.5% (146-370 FGs) from the field, 35.3% (53-150 3FGs) from 3-point range and 75.0% (36-48 FTs) from the line. Prior to joining Dallas, he spent his previous seven NBA seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers and was originally the 23rd overall pick by the Lakers in the 1999 NBA Draft. During his tenure with L.A., he became just the seventh player in NBA history to win an NBA championship in each of his first three seasons.

In 489 career games with 83 starts, George has averaged 6.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 19.2 minutes per game. He has also appeared in 81 playoff games with 27 starts, while averaging 4.9 points and 2.7 rebounds in 17.5 minutes per game.

George scored in double-figures 12 times in 2006-07, with a high of 21 points vs. the Clippers on Dec. 22. He scored 11 points in the second quarter and went 5-6 from 3-point range in that game. He led the team in steals 10 times during the season and had a total of five games with 3 or more steals.

Born and raised in Minneapolis, George attended local Augsburg College. He became the first player to come from a Division III university and appear in the NBA Finals. In four seasons with the Auggies, George averaged 23.5 points and 9.0 rebounds. In 1997-98 and 1998-99, he was named the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Most Valuable Player after leading Augsburg to consecutive MIAC regular season championships and two straight berths in the NCAA Division III National Tournament.
