The Mavs already have a legion under their employ without the roster spots to accommodate them, but that didn’t stop Donnie and Mark from finalizing the details a new deal with James Singleton. Sending James on his merry wouldn’t have caused the ship to sink, but having him around as an extra lifesaver is definitely comforting.
All indications point to a deal of the one-year, $1 million-ish variety, which is great value for a player with Singleton’s heart. James has a tendency to succeed in the roles that he’s given, and even if he has to forcibly pry minutes from the hands of other front-court players, I’m still happy to see such a quality player back in a Maverick uniform.
Marc Stein’s column on ESPN.com notes in the sidebar that Singleton ranked 2nd in win shares among players with 1,000 minutes or fewer. Groovy.
