The Dallas Mavericks have re-signed center Bernard James and officially added free agent shooting guard Wayne Ellington.

Terms of the deals announced Friday weren't disclosed.
James, a former Air Force staff sergeant, was the 33rd pick in the 2012 draft. The Mavericks acquired the rights for James, Jared Cunningham and Jae Crowder in a deal involving No. 17 pick Tyler Zeller.
James averaged 2.8 points and 2.8 rebounds in 46 games, including 11 starts.
Ellington is a four-year veteran with career averages of 6.9 points and 2.0 rebounds. He has played for Minnesota, Memphis and Cleveland.
