Dallas, TX (Sports Network) - The Dallas Mavericks officially signed point guard Jose Calderon on Thursday.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but multiple reports indicate that the deal is for four years and worth $29 million.

Calderon started last season playing for the Toronto Raptors, but as part of a three-team deal ended up in Detroit. He averaged 11.3 points and 7.1 assists over 73 contests.

For his career, which started in 2005 with the Raptors, Calderon has averaged 10.1 points and 7.2 assists in 553 contests.

Calderon should help the Mavericks in their long-range shooting. He is an overall 39.9 percent shooter from beyond the arc. Last season, he shot 46.1 percent from 3-point range, which was the best mark in the NBA.
