Kyle Collinsworth has bounced between the Dallas Mavericks and the G-League this year, but he will be staying in the NBA for the rest of the season.
The Dallas Mavericks announced this afternoon that they have signed the former BYU guard. Terms have not been publicly disclosed, but Shams Charania of The Vertical first reported that it is a three-year deal, with the rest of this season guaranteed.

The Mavs traded away point guard Devin Harris today in return for forward Doug McDermott, meaning the Mavs could have available minutes at the guard line.
In 11 games for the Mavericks, Collinsworth has averaged 2.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, 0.8 assists and 10.5 minutes per game. He initially signed a two-way contract with the Mavericks on Dec. 19, but was waived by the team on Jan. 10. He then signed a pair of 10-day contracts with the club on Jan. 13 and 24.
With the Mavs well out of the playoff race, they may opt to play younger guys, which could give Collinsworth a chance to show the Mavs and other teams around the league what he can do.
