DeShawn Stevenson finds home with Nets


The last of the Dallas Mavericks six free agents has found a new home. Tough-minded shooting guard DeShawn Stevenson has finally agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the New Jersey Nets, according to an ESPNNY.com report.

Stevenson joins former Mavs coach Avery Johnson and point guard Deron Williams, a native of The Colony near Dallas who is highly coveted by the Mavs when he can become a free agent this summer.

Four of the Mavs' six free agents from last season's title team are with new teams. Brian Cardinal re-signed with Dallas and Peja Stojakovic retired.
