The Dallas Mavericks have decided to re-sign 30-year-old German forward Maximilian Kleber and offered a three-year, $33 million extension, according to a report from The Athletic .
Kleber participated in the league draft in 2014 but was unfortunately not selected. In the following three years, he did not get a contract with the NBA team, so he moved to the German professional basketball team to play in the Basketball Federal League (BBL) and the European Basketball League.
It was not until 2017 that he won a contract with the Mavericks through his overseas performance and officially entered the league stage. Now he has played for the Mavericks for 5 seasons, played a total of 326 games and 31 playoff games in the past 3 seasons, averaging 7.1 points and 4.8 rebounds per game in this 5-year career. 1.1 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.9 blocks. Shot 44.6 percent overall and 35.9 percent from 3-point range, making them part of the Mavericks’ rotation.
And Kleber ‘s playing time also increased from the initial 16.8 minutes to 26.8 minutes, averaging a maximum of 9.1 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists. In 59 regular-season games for the Mavericks last season, he averaged 7 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.5 steals and 1 block in 24.6 minutes while shooting 32.5 percent from 3-point range.
Although Kleber’s performance is far inferior to that of the main player Luka Doncic, it is difficult to enter the starting lineup, but he is still the core player of the rotation. And the seasoned veteran in the Mavericks will continue to extend his time with the team, and this new contract extension will also take effect in the 2022-2023 season, which will last until the 2025-2026 season three years later.
