DALLAS — The Dallas Mavericks announced today they have signed rookie free agent forward Eugene Omoruyi to a two-way contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

As a senior, Omoruyi averaged a team-high 17.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 30.6 minutes while shooting 47.3% (174-368 FG) from the field, 37.6% (41-109 3FG) from behind-the-arc and 76.5% (91-119 FT) from the foul line. He was the only Duck to start all 28 games and helped lead Oregon to the Sweet 16.
