Mavs Sign Peja

After a slight delay due to waivers and a trade snag, the Mavericks announced that they have signed Peja Stojakovic. The deal is presumably for the rest of the season, and will likely pay Stojakovic the minimum salary. In order to free up a roster spot, Dallas traded Alexis Ajinca to the Raptors, satisfying Ajinca and his agent by finding the young center an opportunity for more playing time while also snagging a veteran shooter on the cheap.

Peja Stojakovic is a good third string small forward. His expertise as a shooter makes him a valuable situational reserve to have one’s bench.

Nice addition for the Mavs
