Former UNC basketball standout Theo Pinson is staying put in Dallas.

The forward is returning to the Mavericks on a one-year deal per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Pinson entered this offseason as a free agent but struck a deal to stay in Dallas for another season.

The 26-year-old Pinson played 19 games for the Mavericks last season, averaging 2.5 points and 1.1 rebounds per game. He was signed on a 10-day contract with the Mavs dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak and then earned a two-way contract for the remainder of the season.

While Pinson hasn’t become a key figure in their rotation, he’s crucial for team chemistry, something the team values.

The Mavericks are fresh off a run to the Western Conference Finals a year ago where they fell to the eventual NBA champion Golden State Warriors.
