The Dallas Mavericks on Monday announced the signing of former Orlando Magic shooting guard Doron Lamb. In Dallas, Lamb will reunite with Jameer Nelson, who signed with the team in July after Orlando elected not to guarantee his contract for the 2014/15 season.
Lamb spent an undistinguished season-plus with the Magic after arriving via trade with the Milwaukee Bucks. The second-leading scorer on the Kentucky Wildcats' 2012 national title-winning team, Lamb struggled to crack the Magic's rotation ahead of the older and more versatile E'Twaun Moore. An ankle injury he suffered in what would have been his first training camp as a member of the Magic only set him back further.
All told, Lamb made 77 appearances for the Magic, averaging 3.5 points and one rebound per game on 39.5 percent shooting from deep.
The team's confidence in former no. 2 Draft choice Victor Oladipo, along with its offseason additions of Ben Gordon and Evan Fournier, made retaining Lamb low on Orlando's list of priorities.
