Mavs make Ledo, Wright deals official

The Mavericks have signed rookie Ricky Ledo to a four year deal and made it official on Brandan Wright.


The Mavericks are finally starting to make some more of their signings official.

Yesterday, the Mavs signed second-round draft pick G Ricky Ledo to a four-year deal. David Lord of first reported the contract details. It appears the first two years are fully guaranteed at slightly above the minimum, with years three and four being either non-guaranteed or a team option.

As Andrew detailed in his Summer League Round-Up, Ledo certainly appears to have some great raw potential. However, Summer League marked the first organized basketball he has played since being widely recognized as a top high school prospect in 2012. Although he showed flashes of NBA-level talent (even drawing some comparisons to Kevin Durant), he certainly has a lot of learning to do. It has been speculated he'll start the season in the D-League with the Texas Legends. But the structure of his contract - guaranteed money for two years for a second round pick, which is somewhat unusual - seems to indicate that the Mavs plan to keep him around as part of their bigger picture going forward.

Today, the Mavs also made F/C Brandan Wright's re-signing official. As previously detailed, Wright's deal is reported to be $10 million over 2 years, plus incentives.

Officially, this leaves the Mavericks with two roster spots to fill. However, unofficially the team will also be re-signing second year C Bernard James soon, which will leave them with one roster spot available.
