Gian Clavell chose to sign a partially guaranteed minimum deal with the Mavs over a similar offer from the Heat after starring for Miami's summer league team. "The Miami Heat gave me a chance this summer and I'll be forever grateful," Clavell said in a text. "That being said I couldn't be more excited to start my NBA journey with the Dallas Mavericks. From Rick Carlisle to Donnie Nelson and Mark Cuban it's a first class winning organization that I will come in and compete and give my all. I couldn't be more excited."
