Basketball: Shane Larkin Inks Rookie Deal With Mavs


On Monday the Dallas Mavericks announced that first-round draft pick Shane Larkin has signed his rookie contract.

Larkin, who was picked 18th overall in the 2013 NBA Draft, is slated to make $1.28 million in his first season as a Dallas Maverick, ESPN has reported.

Larkin suffered a broken ankle during summer-league practice that could leave him sidelined anywhere from two to three months.

During the 2012-13 season, the 5-11 guard was named ACC Player of the Year as well as the ACC Tournament MVP leading the Hurricanes to their first ever ACC championship win, as well as a Sweet 16 appearance.

In his final season at Miami, Larkin averaged 14.5 points per game, 4.6 assists and 3.8 rebounds.
