DeSagana Diop has reportedly reached an agreement with the Mavericks on a five-year contract for the full mid-level exception. The seven footer played 27 games with the Nets after the February trade that sent Jason Kidd to Dallas. He had reportedly received interest from at least four teams when free agent negotiations began Tuesday. "My heart has always been here," Diop said of Dallas.
