DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Mavericks have signed first-round draft pick Jared Cunningham.

Terms were not disclosed.

Cunningham was the 24th overall selection in the NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was acquired by the Mavericks last month, along with the draft rights to Bernard James, the 33rd overall pick, and 34th overall pick Jae Crowder, in exchange for guard Kelenna Azubuike and the draft rights to the 17th overall pick in the draft, Tyler Zeller.

Cunningham is on the Mavericks’ summer league team in Las Vegas, but has not played because of a strained hamstring.

Cunningham was selected first-team All-Pac 12 as a junior when he averaged 17.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.5 steals per game for Oregon State.

The Mavericks say they’ve also signed second-round draft choice Jae Crowder.

Terms of the deal with the former Marquette star were not disclosed.

The Cleveland Cavaliers made the 6-foot-6, 235-pound forward the 34th overall pick of the NBA draft.

The Mavericks acquired him last month, along with draft rights to 24th overall pick Jared Cunningham and 33rd overall pick Bernard James. In return, the Cavs got guard Kelenna Azubuike and Tyler Zeller, the Mavs’ first-round pick and 17th overall.

Crowder is playing for Dallas in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. He’s averaging 14.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 32.3 minutes while starting his first three games. Before transferring to Marquette, he starred at Howard College in Big Spring, Texas.
