AP source: Matthews, Mavs reach agreement on 4-year contract

AP Sports Writer

DALLAS (AP) - Free agent guard Wesley Matthews and the Mavericks have agreed on a four-year deal with financial terms that will depend on whether center DeAndre Jordan decides to join him in Dallas.

A person with knowledge of the deal says Matthews and the Mavericks reached an agreement in principle late Thursday night and will wait on the decision from Jordan, who is apparently choosing between the Mavericks and his original team, the Los Angeles Clippers.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal isn't finalized. Players can't sign until July 9.

Matthews is coming off a ruptured left Achilles tendon sustained in a game against the Mavericks in March. It's unclear if he'll be ready to start the season.
