DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) — The Dallas Mavericks are closing in on a one-year deal to bring back veteran center Bernard James, according to a report.

Marc Stein reports the one-year deal would be worth the veteran’s minimum.

Dallas received James, better known as ‘Sarge’, in a draft day deal with Cleveland in 2012.

The 29-year-old has spent his entire career in Dallas, appearing in 76 games (11 starts) and averaging 2.1 points and 2.3 rebounds in 7.9 minutes.

The 6-foot-10, 240 pound James  joins Tyson Chandler, Brandan Wright, and recently acquired Greg Smith as centers on the roster.
