Pops Mensah-Bonsu is Officialy a Mav

The expected signing of Pops Mensah-Bonsu became official this afternoon.

I can't find any info on the contract yet, but it's probably a three year deal with only one year guaranteed.

Here's what I wrote about Pops before the summer league began.  He stuck with the Mavs through both summer leagues and put up OK numbers.  Draft Express made the comment in one of their scouting reports that he's the kind of player who has better games than his box scores indicate.

"Pops showed today one of the reasons why we do not solely rely on stats to gauge someone's performance. His statline wasn't that impressive, but he was easily the most exciting player for Dallas today with his hustle on the boards, and his insane ups on a couple of dunks, including an offensive rebound/dunk at the 3rd quarter buzzer. He plays a lot bigger than he is.

In my opinion, he's a far better prospect than either Josh Powell or Rawle Marshall who went to Indiana in the Anthony Johnson trade.
