Mavericks in talks to sign Maxi Kleber

The Dallas Mavericks have not been very active on the free agency market this summer. A large part of their roster is already set and they are not reported to chasing any big-name free agents. Most speculation concerning the Mavs is about restricted free agent center Nerlens Noel, who was traded from the 76ers earlier this year.

Now, the Mavericks are considering adding a new name to the roster. According to E. Carchia from Sportando, the Mavs are considering 25-year-old German forward Maxi Kleber. Kleber has been playing in Europe since 2009 and has been a part of German club Bayern Munich for the last two years.

He has also played for Spanish club Obradoiro CAB and his hometown team S.Oliver Baskets. This forward featured in some games for the German national team as well. Kleber was a part of the German roster for the Eurobasket qualification tourney in 2014, where he played with Atlanta Hawks guard Dennis Schroder, although he was not included in their final roster for the competition held in 2015.

His averages in the 2016-17 season with Bayern Munich were 9.3 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. The same report also states that if Kleber does not move to the Mavs, he will remain with Bayern Munich.

Kleber declared for the 2014 NBA Draft, but went undrafted.
