Dallas Mavericks have signed big man Ivan Johnson. 

One of the meanest looking dudes in the NBA has found a new home. The Mavericks needed some more physical players and they get that in Johnson. He doesn't have any fantasy value because he's a bench player that grabs a few rebounds, but does nothing else.

The Mavericks announce the official signing of Jameer Nelson. 

Nelson will take the spot of Jose Calderon in being the floor general for the Mavericks next season and still has plenty left in the tank to be a solid fantasy contributor. However, until we see how he fits in the team's offensive scheme it is hard to tell just how many shots will be left over for him playing along side Dirk Nowitzki.

Forward Rashard Lewis will have knee surgery soon. Lewis has previously agreed to sign with Dallas.

If Lewis didn't pass his physical or officially sign the papers, than Dallas could take away their offer to sign the veteran small forward. It would be sad if this injury ends Lewis' stellar NBA career.

Mavericks announced today that they have signed free agent forward Eric Griffin.

Cut last year at this time by the Heat, Griffin put on a nice show playing in Puerto Rico instead of playing in the NBA or its D-League. This year, he's averaging 9.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in 19.3 minutes per game in the Summer League and is looking like a potentially dynamic option. The Mavs made sound investment here and Griffin should prove to be a string asset off the bench.

ESPN sources say Washington and Dallas Mavericks on course to finalize DeJuan Blair sign-and-trade deal Wednesday.

Blair would head into a situation where he would back up the oft-injured Nene. Blair averaged just 6.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 0.3 blocks in 16 minutes per game last year, but has always been able to bang down low in the block and create space. The Wizards are in dire need of quality depth in the front court.
