The Dallas Mavericks continue to fill out their training camp roster. Thursday, the team signed undrafted center Aric Holman, the Athletic’s Shams Charania reports. Holman played collegiately at Mississippi State.
Holman, 22, played all four years in college and put up his best numbers as a junior. In 37 games, 30 of which were starts, he averaged 10.9 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks in 23 minutes per game. He also shot the ball extremely well, knocking down 57.3 percent of his field goal attempts. Behind the three-point arc, he also showed the touch, making 44 percent of his shots and averaged over two attempts from deep.
During his four years, the the 6-foot-10, 225-pound big man posted averages of 8.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks. He’s a career 51 percent shooter and made 38.2 percent of his three-point shots.
After going undrafted this summer, he joined the Los Angeles Lakers and competed in both the Sacramento and Las Vegas summer leagues. He appeared in three games off the bench in Sacramento and four of the Lakers’ five games in Vegas.
In Las Vegas, Holman averaged 4.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, and one block in 15.8 minutes per game. He shot 26.3 percent overall and 30 percent from downtown.
Each NBA team can carry 20 players on their roster during training camp and preseason. Holman is the 19th player the Mavericks have under contract.
