Mavericks Sign Forward To Multi-Year Extension

The Dallas Mavericks have been able to stave off impending free agency in one of their key rotation players, signing power forward Maxi Kleber to a multi-year deal. 

NBA Insider Shams Charania reports that it's a 3-year, $33M contract, and the new deal keeps him in Dallas through 2025-26. Shams also notes that it's fully guaranteed. Kleber will earn $9M this season before the extension kicks in. 

With the deal, the 6'10" power forward is ineligible to be traded until at least March, well past the trade deadline. 

The 30-year-old is going into his 6th year with the Mavs; he's averaged 7.1 points and 4.8 rebounds, while spreading the floor with a 36% rate from 3-point range over his five seasons. 

The Mavs still have 8-year Dallas vet Dwight Powell, and newly-acquired Christian Wood on expiring deals this season.
