Kleber, 27, is a German player who has spent his two seasons in the league with the Mavericks. Last season, the power forward averaged 6.8 points and 4.6 rebounds per game. He also stretches the floor as he shot 35.3 percent from behind the arc last season.
It was important for the Mavericks to solidify their frontcourt depth after Dirk Nowitzki decided to retire following the season. Kleber’s role could increase with more minutes available next season.
