Troy Murphy reaches one-year deal with Dallas Mavericks

Free agent forward Troy Murphy has reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Dallas is working to clear a roster spot to sign Murphy. The Mavericks, at the league limit of 15 players, have been unsuccessfully shopping third-year guard Dominique Jones.

Murphy, 32, played a sparing role in 59 games for the Los Angeles Lakers a season ago, but he's still a capable perimeter shooter. Once considered one of the league's elite perimeter shooting forwards, the 6-foot-11 Murphy has bounced around several teams in the past three years, including the Lakers, Boston Celtics and New Jersey Nets.

In his first 10 seasons – including six with Golden State – Murphy averaged a double-double in points and rebounds five times. He averages 10.9 points per game for his career, but his minutes and numbers have dropped dramatically in the past three seasons.
