The Dallas Mavericks are re-signing veteran guard J.J. Barea to a one-year contract worth the veteran's minimum, league sources told The Athletics' Shams Charania.

The veteran's minimum is $2.56 million, according to Hoops Rumors.

Aside from a three-season stint with the Minnesota Timberwolves from 2011-14, Barea has been with the Mavericks since 2006. Since re-joining the franchise in 2014, the 35-year-old Puerto Rico native has averaged 10.2 points and 4.8 assists per contest while shooting 35.4 percent on 3-pointers.

Longtime teammate Dirk Nowitzki retired at the end of last season, so Barea now holds the distinction as the only current Mavericks player to appear on the 2011 title-winning team.
