Free-agent forward Richard Jefferson has agreed to a one-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Jefferson, 34, has played 13 seasons in the NBA, including parts of the past two seasons with the Utah Jazz.

Jefferson gives the Mavericks some value on a minimum deal at small forward, where he has been a starter for several playoff teams through the years, including the Nets and Spurs.
