Kyle Collinsworth had one last chance to show the Dallas Mavericks what he could do before his 10-day contract expired, and he delivered.
The former BYU playmaker had his most complete showing since joining the Mavericks in a 98-75 win over the Washington Wizards on Monday as he totaled career highs in scoring, rebounds and assists while playing his most minutes since joining the team. He finished with four points on 2-for-2 shooting from the floor while adding four rebounds and three assists in 19 minutes off the bench.
He also showed well on the defensive end of the floor with a pair of steals.
His performance was good enough to earn a second 10-day deal with the Mavericks, according to Dallas Morning News writer Eddie Sefko.
In six games, Collinsworth has managed 11 points on 80 percent shooting from the field, including a make on his only 3-point attempt. He has also contributed eight rebounds, five assists and three steals in 52 minutes.
His second 10-day deal will give Collinsworth five more chances to show what he can do against NBA talent before the Mavericks have to make a decision on his future with the team.
The first of those games comes on Wednesday when Dallas faces off with the Houston Rockets.
