DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Mavericks have added veteran power forward Rashard Lewis.
Mavericks owner Mark Cuban revealed the move Tuesday night in a post on a Cyber Dust account controlled by Cuban and the team.
The 34-year-old Lewis is a two-time All-Star who has played 16 seasons with four teams since going straight to the NBA out of a Houston high school in the 1998 draft. He played for Seattle (1998-2007), Orlando (2007-10) and Washington (2010-12) before the last two seasons in Miami.
His one-year deal in Dallas came on the same day the Mavericks officially signed forwards Dirk Nowitzki and Chandler Parsons.
Lewis has averaged 14.9 points and 5.2 rebounds in his 1,049 career games.
