Mavericks sign Tyronn Lue
The Dallas Mavericks announced today they have signed guard Tyronn Lue. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Lue (6-0, 175) played 33 games for Atlanta this season and averaged 6.8 points and 1.8 assists in 17.1 minutes. On February 16, he was traded from Atlanta to Sacramento, along with guard Anthony Johnson, centers Sheldon Williams and Lorenzen Wright and a 2008 second round draft choice, but never saw action with the Kings due to a left calf strain.
The 10-year pro has career averages of 9.1 points, 3.4 assists and 1.8 rebounds while shooting 43.6% from the field in 493 total games with five different teams (Los Angeles Lakers, Washington, Orlando, Houston and Atlanta).
Last season, Lue had the best scoring season of his career as he averaged 11.4 points, along with 3.6 assists, 1.9 rebounds and 0.4 steals in 26.6 minutes per game with the Hawks. He won NBA Championships with the L.A. Lakers in 2000 and 2001.
