Former UC Santa Barbara guard JaQuori McLaughlin will reportedly sign a two-way contract with the Dallas Mavericks, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.

McLaughlin, who went undrafted, was named the Big West Player of the Year after averaging 16 points, 5.2 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 26 games last season. He became just the third player in program history to register at least 1,000 and 300 assists in a career.

The 6-foot-4 standout most recently played in the Las Vegas Summer League with the Golden State Warriors. He averaged 10.2 points, 5.8 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 1.6 steals in five games on 38.3% shooting from the field. His best game came on Aug. 13 after recording 14 points.

McLaughlin will split his time between the Mavericks and Texas Legends in the NBA G League. He will have the opportunity to develop with the Legends while gaining NBA experience throughout the season with the parent club.

Players this season signed to two-way contracts are eligible to spend no more than 50 games in the NBA. They will earn a flat salary equal to 50% of the minimum salary applicable to a player with zero years of service.
