Source: Richard Jefferson returning to Mavs

Small forward Richard Jefferson has agreed to return to the Dallas Mavericks on a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum, a source said.

Jefferson celebrated DeAndre Jordan’s decision to come to Dallas at a Manhattan Beach, Calif., bar Friday with a group including Mavs owner Mark Cuban and small forward Chandler Parsons.

In a video sent by Cuban on CyberDust, he laughed and asked Jefferson if he knew where he’d play next season. Jefferson joked: “We’ll see!”

Jefferson, whose best years came with the New Jersey Nets at the beginning of his career, averaged 5.8 points for the Mavericks last season. He has a career scoring average of 13.9 points.

Jefferson, 35, a 14-year veteran, has become a journeyman in the latter stages of his career, playing for four teams over the last four seasons. His best asset at this point is his perimeter shooting touch, as he’s shot better than 40 percent from 3-point range, in four of the last five seasons, including 42.6 percent in 2014-15.

Jefferson also signed a one-year deal with the Mavs for the veteran’s minimum last summer. He has made $106.6 million in his career.
