The Dallas Mavericks signed forward Maxi Kleber to a contract extension Thursday, keeping one of their most valuable players in the fold.

A huge cornerstone for the Mavs, Kleber is entering the final season of a four-year $35.6 million contract he signed on July 10, 2019 that will pay him nine million dollars this coming season. His new contract, according to multiple reports, will pay him $33 million over three years and will keep the five-year veteran with the Mavs through the 2025-’26 season.

In 326 career games with the Mavs, the 6-11, 220-pound Kleber averaged 7.1 points and 4.8 rebounds while playing 22.7 minutes per contest. The 6-11, 220-pounder also averaged seven points and 5.9 rebounds last season, including 8.7 points and 4.6 rebounds during the Mavs’ 18 playoff games.
