The Dallas Mavericks signed free agent forward Charlie Villanueva on Tuesday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team. Earlier reports indicated that it was a non-guaranteed contract.

The 6-foot-11 Villanueva joins the Mavericks after completing a five-year, $35 million deal with the Detroit Pistons. He has career averages of 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 530 games with the Pistons, Milwaukee Bucks and the Toronto Raptors, who drafted him No. 7 overall in 2005.

Last season with the Pistons, the 30-year-old Villanueva averaged 4.6 points and 1.7 rebounds and shot 38 percent from the field in just 20 games.
