(Xinhua)    13:09, July 24, 2018

The Dallas Mavericks of the NBA have signed Chinese player Ding Yanyuhang.

No details of the contract have been disclosed.

Ding previously played for Shandong in the CBA and was named MVP in China the last two consecutive seasons.

He averaged 26 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 45 games last season. 

Previous reports say Ding signed a training contract with the Mavericks and will play in this year's NBA China Games in October.

If Ding convinces the Mavericks he is good enough, he will join NBA great Dirk Nowitzki in the new season. Nowitzki has just re-signed with Dallas and is about to set a new NBA record of playing 21 straight seasons for the same team.

Ding played for Dallas in the Summer League last year.
