The Dallas Mavericks will acquire minimum-salaried reserve big man Greg Smith in a trade with the Chicago Bulls as soon as Monday, a source confirmed.

The 6-foot-10, 250-pound Smith averaged 5.3 points and 4.1 rebounds in 14.4 minutes per game over the last three seasons with the Houston Rockets. The Bulls signed him through next season after Houston waived him in April.

According to the source, the Mavs are giving up "nothing" in the deal, which was first reported by Yahoo Sports. The Bulls are simply dumping a little bit of salary to help them make another move.

Smith, who will make $948,163 in 2014-15, fills the Mavs' need for a low-priced banger off the bench, the role filled by DeJuan Blair last season. The Mavs are also likely to re-sign Bernard James to a minimum-salary deal, a source said.

The Chicago Bulls signed forward Greg Smith and waived forward Tornike Shengelia on Monday.

The 6-foot-10 Smith has played in 89 games over the past two-plus seasons for the Houston Rockets. He averaged 3.5 points and 2.5 rebounds in 11 games with Houston this season.

Acquired from the Brooklyn Nets in a trade for Marquis Teague, Shengelia played in nine games with the Bulls.

The Bulls signed veterans Mike James, Ronnie Brewer and Lou Amundson last week. The roster now stands at 15 players.
