July 17 Free Agency Rundown: Augustin, Dalmbert, Mullens Miller

Here is a rundown of the some of the smaller stories you may have missed during the day:

Dalmbert, Dallas Agree To Deal

The Dallas Mavericks and center Samuel Dalmbert have to a verbal agreement, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.

Dalambert, an 11-year veteran, averaged 6.7 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game for the Milwaukee Bucks last season.

The 26th overall pick of the 2001 draft out of Seton Hall spent his first eight years with the Philadelphia 76ers before joining the Sacramento Kings, Houston Rockets and Bucks.

The likely takes the Mavericks out of the running for big man Greg Oden.

Mike Miller Drawing Interest

A day after being released by the Miami Heat via the amnesty clause Tuesday, veteran swingman Mike Miller is drawing interest from several teams.

However, Miller, who has been hindered by a bad back, is considering surgery.

According to Yahoo’s Adiran Wojnarowski, the injury could scare them off.

Wojanrowski specifically lists the Cleveland Cavaliers as a suitor, reporting they “are strongly considering a claim on Miller, and it is believed they’ve also been weighing the issues regarding his back.”

Teams under the salary cap have until Thursday at 5:00 pm EST to claim Miller. If no one does, he will become an unrestricted free agent.

The Houston Rockets are another team who supposedly have Miller on their radar.

 Raptors, Augustin Come To Terms

The Toronto Raptors have come to terms with point guard D.J. Augustin, according to Wojnarowski.

Augustin spent last season with the Indiana Pacers.

He averaged 4.7 points, 2.2 assists and 1.2 rebounds per game. Augustin spent his first four season with the Charlotte Bobcats, who selected Augustin with the ninth overall pick in the 2008 draft.

The deal is worth $1.2 million over one year.

Mullers, Clippers Close To A Deal

The Los Angeles Clippers and big man Byron Mullens are “nearing an agreement on a two-year contract,” according to Wojnarowski.

Mullens, who is entering his fifth NBA season, had his best year as a pro in his fourth. The 24-year old seven-footer averaged 10.6 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. He shot 38.5% from the floor, 31.7% from beyond the arc and 64.6% from the free throw line.
