The Dallas Mavericks are bringing back a pair of their own free agents next season.

Deron Williams is returning to his hometown on a one-year, $10 million deal, and will be joined by Dwight Powell who re-upped on a four-year pact worth $37 million.

The Mavs are also in the hunt for Harrison Barnes.

Per the AP:

Powell is a restricted free agent, which means Dallas could have matched any offer from another team.

 

The Mavericks are also trying to pry a restricted free agent from two-time Western Conference champion Golden State, with plans to sign Harrison Barnes to an offer sheet on a maximum contract at four years and $95 million. The Warriors could match the deal if they miss out in their pursuit of Kevin Durant.

 

The three agreements in a span of two days come after the Mavericks missed out on their top targets in free agency for the fifth consecutive year. Memphis guard Mike Conley and Miami center Hassan Whiteside decided to stay with their current teams, both on maximum contracts.
