Tunisian center Salah Mejri signed with the Dallas Mavericks, the team announced Thursday.

A source said Mejri's deal is a three-year contract with the first year guaranteed.

The 7-foot-2 Mejri, 29, averaged 4.3 points and 2.1 rebounds in 8.6 minutes per game for Spanish League champion Real Madrid last season.

Mejri was a member of the Tunisian national team that competed in the 2012 Olympics.
