The Dallas Mavericks have signed Japanese guard Yuki Togashi after he played on their summer league team.
Togashi averaged 5.3 points in four summer league games. The native of Niigata, Japan, played high school basketball in the U.S. at the school that produced Kevin Durant.
After his graduation from Montrose Christian School in Maryland in 2012, Togashi played professionally in his native country in 2013-14, averaging 16.3 points and a league-high 7.6 assists per game for the Akita Northern Happinets.
