DALLAS (AP) – The Dallas Mavericks have recalled 7-foot forward Yi Jianlian from their D-League team. Yi was scheduled to join the Mavericks in time for their game Tuesday night at Detroit.

Yi signed a free agent contract with the Mavericks on Friday, and was then assigned to the Texas Legends. Yi averaged 23 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks in two games with the Legends.

The former Chinese Basketball Association standout was picked sixth overall by Milwaukee in the 2007 NBA draft.

In 242 NBA games for the Bucks (2007-08), New Jersey (2008-10) and Washington (2010-11), Yi has averaged 8.5 points and 5.3 rebounds a game. His best NBA season came for the Nets in 2009-10, when he averaged 12 points and 7.2 rebounds in 52 games.
