The unrestricted free agent will receive about $1.87 million in the first year from the Mavericks' biannual exception, agent Leon Rose said. The 35-year-old Jones, a three-time All-Star, is expected to be in Dallas on Monday to take a physical and sign the agreement.

The 6-foot-6, 200-pound swingman has averaged 15.4 points per game in 13 NBA seasons.
