Richard Jefferson to Sign With Cavs

Richard Jefferson has changed his mind about joining the Dallas Mavericks and chosen to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers on a one-year deal worth about $1.5 million.

Jefferson, 35, averaged 5.8 points and 2.5 rebounds in 74 games for the Mavs last season. Physically, Jefferson has been fighting off father time very well. He threw down a series of nasty dunks this past season.

Via the AP:

Richard Jefferson has experience, deep knowledge of the NBA and a deft shooting touch.

The Cavaliers plan to lean on all those attributes.

The free agent forward has agreed to terms on a one-year deal for next season with Cleveland, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because Jefferson has not yet signed his contract.
