DALLAS (AP) -- The Dallas Mavericks say they've 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 (a-zoo-BOO'-kay) 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.
