The 39-year old point guard averaged 6.2 points and 5.5 assists while shooting an abysmal 36.3 percent from the field during 48 regular season games with the Mavericks this past season. He has been a starter during his entire 17-year NBA career, but is likely facing a transition to the bench next season.
