DALLAS — The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have signed free agent guard Gian Clavell. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Clavell (6-4, 185) recently competed for the Miami Heat’s summer league teams in both Orlando and Las Vegas. In five games in Las Vegas, he averaged 12.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 24.6 minutes while shooting 45.2 percent (19-of-42) from the field, 40.6 percent (13-of-32) from 3-point range and 91.7 percent (11-of-12) from the foul line.

A native of Caguas, Puerto Rico, Clavell also played for Brujos de Guayama in the BSN league this summer. He averaged 5.7 points and 2.0 rebounds in three games for the Puerto Rican club.

The former Colorado State standout went undrafted in the 2017 NBA Draft after earning Mountain West Player of the Year honors as a redshirt senior last season. In 27 games for the Rams in 2016-17, he averaged a MWC-best 20.4 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 2.0 steals in 36.6 minutes. 

Clavell spent two years at Northwest Kansas Technical College (2012-14) before transferring to CSU. He attended high school in Miami (at Hialeah Gardens HS), as did fellow Mavericks guard J.J. Barea (Miami Christian School), who also hails from Puerto Rico.

Clavell was included on the Puerto Rican national team’s preliminary list for the FIBA Americup 2017.
