As the Dallas Mavericks continue to fill out their roster, two more deals officially got done this week.

Shooting guard Wayne Ellington, who is expected to back up fellow free-agent addition Monta Ellis, made his two-year, $5.3 million deal official. The Mavs used the "room" exception to sign him.

Meanwhile, Bernard James' contract is also official as the Mavs signed him for the veteran's minimum. He was waived last week as the Mavs were clearing as much cap space as possible, but luckily he was not claimed. Dallas was able to re-sign the second-year player in James to be the third-string center once again.

He will back up new Mavs' starting center Samuel Dalembert and Brandan Wright, another player returning after getting his deal finalized this week.
