Larkin signs rookie contract with Mavs
As the 18th overall pick, Larkin is slotted to make $1.28 million in the first season of his rookie deal.
Larkin, a point guard who was the ACC player of the year and tournament MVP as a Miami sophomore, is recovering from a broken ankle suffered the day the Mavs' summer league team left for Las Vegas. He underwent surgery July 16. His recovery time is estimated to be three months, putting his status for the beginning of training camp in question.
With Larkin's signing official, the Mavs have 13 players on the roster. They also intend to sign Devin Harris after the veteran guard recovers from surgery to repair a dislocated toe. That leaves one open roster spot for the Mavs, who are among the teams pursuing injury-prone former No. 1 overall pick Greg Oden.
