DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have signed free agent forward Dorian Finney-Smith. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Finney-Smith (6'8, 220) signed with Dallas after going undrafted in the 2016 NBA Draft. He played his final three collegiate seasons at Florida after transferring from Virginia Tech following his freshman year. In 134 career collegiate games, he averaged 10.7 points and 7.1 rebounds in 28.6 minutes per game.

Finney-Smith led the Gators in rebounding in all three of his seasons at Florida (2013-2016) and he led the team in scoring in each of his final two (2014-2016). His 1220 points at Florida rank 36th in school history. What's more, he became the first Florida player to join the 1000-point club after transferring to the school.

As a senior in 2015-2016, Finney-Smith averaged 14.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 31.8 minutes in 36 games en route to being named Second Team All-SEC by the coaches and Third Team All-SEC by the Associated Press.

The Portsmouth, Virginia native will compete for the Mavericks on their 2016 Samsung NBA Summer league team, which begins play July 9 in Las Vegas.
