The trade is official, and Eduardo Najera is the newest Dallas Maverick. Via the press release:
Najera (6-8, 235) will be returning to Dallas after playing his first four professional seasons for the Mavericks. Dallas originally acquired the rights to Najera in a draft night trade with Houston on June 28, 2000. He played in 208 games (34 starts) as a Maverick averaging 4.9 points and 3.9 rebounds in 17.4 minutes per contest. Najera also played in 39 postseason games with Dallas, including 19 games (5 starts) in 2003 when the Mavericks advanced to the Western Conference Finals.
Here’s a classic American Express spot from Najera’s first stint with the Mavs, featuring Tariq Abdul-Wahad, Dirk, Steve Nash, Najera, and a slightly less crazy Don Nelson:
