DALLAS (AP) _ The Dallas Mavericks signed Mark Strickland, a free agent forward who has spent seven seasons in the NBA.
The 6-foot-10 Strickland was to be in uniform Saturday night against New Jersey. He is averaging 4.6 points and 2.8 rebounds for a career in which he has played with Indiana, Miami, Denver, New Jersey and Atlanta. He was with the Hawks last season and most recently played in France and Puerto Rico.
The Mavericks signed Strickland under a special NBA roster rule. A team with three players on its injured list may substitute an active player if another player misses a minimum of three straight games because of injury.
