Dallas Mavericks Ink Yi Jianlian to a One-Year Deal

As expected, Dallas has signed Eazy-Yi to a 1-year contract. Reports the Star-Telegram: “After being the sixth pick of the 2007 draft by the Milwaukee Buicks, Yi played four seasons in the NBA with Milwaukee, New Jersey and Washington. In 242 career games, the 7-0, 250-pounder averaged 8.5 points and 5.3 rebounds in 24.1 minutes per game. Yi will be working in Frisco with the Texas Legends of the D-League trying to get in shape before the Mavs call him up.”
