DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - The Mavericks have re-signed point guard Trey Burke to a three-year, $10 million deal, Marc Stein of the New York Times reports.

Burke joined the Mavericks when the season re-started in the Orlando bubble because they had a need at the point guard position with Jalen Brunson out with a shoulder injury.

Burke flourished in his role under coach Rick Carlisle, averaging 12 points and 3.8 assists per game in the eight regular season games Dallas played in the bubble.

He continued his strong play against the Clippers in the first-round of the playoffs, averaging 12.3 points on 50.8% shooting from the field.

This is Burke's second go-around with the Mavs as he played for Dallas last season, averaging 9.7 points and 2.6 assists in 25 games.

Prior to joining the Mavs this summer, the 28-year-old appeared in 25 games with the 76ers, averaging 5.9 points and 2.1 assists per game.
