Former Magic Guard Jameer Nelson Signs With Mavericks
Former Orlando Magic point guard Jameer Nelson signed a one-year, $2.7 million contract on Thursday to play with the Dallas Mavericks.
I am excited, Nelson said. It's one of those things that during the process it was fun to go through, but there came a point where I was ready to get it done. From the start, Dallas was on my radar and one of the top teams I was targeting."
Nelson will sign with the Mavericks for their cap-room exception of $2.7 million.
The 10-year veteran was waived from the Magic in a cap saving move. The Magic owe Nelson $2 million this season, making the deal even better for Dallas.
