Mavs re-sign veteran Tim Thomas

The Dallas Mavericks re-signed veteran forward Tim Thomas on Wednesday to an undisclosed contract.

The Mavs are the versatile journeyman’s seventh NBA team spanning a 13-year career in the league, having been selected seventh overall out of Villanova in 1997 by the 76ers. A pair of stints in New York and Chicago followed as well as stops in Milwaukee, Phoenix and with the Clippers.

In 18 games with the Mavericks last season, Thomas averaged 7.5 points and 2.3 rebounds. He missed 11 games after right knee surgery and 41 games due to personal reasons.

Thomas has career averages of 11.5 points and 4.1 rebounds in 824 career regular-season games. The 6-10 sharpshooter has shown an ability to increase his production come playoff time, averaging 13.3 points and 5.1 boards.

The 33-year-old has hit on 43.7 percent of his field goals and shot 36.9 percent from three-point range in the regular season while bringing those totals up to 46.8 percent and 43.6 percent from beyond the arc in the postseason.
