Mavs sign German forward Maxi Kleber

The Dallas Mavericks announced on Wednesday that they have officially German power forward Maximilian “Maxi” Kleber. 

ESPN’s Tim MacMahon reports the deal is only partially guaranteed, believed to be for two years.

Born in Dirk Nowitzki’s hometown in Würzburg, Kleber went undrafted in the 2014 NBA Draft. In 2015, he signed a two-year contract with Bayern Munich of the Basketball Bundesliga (BBL). During the 2015-16 season, the 25 year-old Kleber averaged 8.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.2 blocks, and 1.0 steals in the Bundesliga and 9.7 points and 6.6 rebounds in 17 games in the EuroCup. Kleber was named to the All-EuroCup Second Team.

Kleber is described as a high-character big man with a good outside shot but has struggled to stay healthy.
