DALLAS (AP) - The Mavericks moved quickly once they were out of the running for Dwight Howard.
A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press that Dallas and free agent point guard Jose Calderon have an agreement on a four-year, $28 million contract.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because free agent contracts can't be discussed publicly before Wednesday, when they can first be signed.
A starting point guard was the top priority for Dallas after the pursuit of Howard. The Mavericks were among five teams pursuing the free agent center, but owner Mark Cuban said Friday he was told Dallas was out of the running.
Calderon spent his first seven years with Toronto before the Raptors traded him to Detroit in January.
