Mark Cuban used his Twitter account to announce the signing of Peja Stojakovic in late January. The Mavericks owner wrote: "Peja is now a Mav! Time to let him drop some of those 3s on the bad guys."

The message came days after the Toronto Raptors bought out Stojakovic's $15 million expiring contract. The 34-year-old was allowed to sign with any team and he chose the Mavs.

It obviously turned out to be the right decision.

Even though Stojakovic scored only two points in the Finals series against the Miami Heat, he was a tremendous contributor in the three previous rounds of the playoffs.

Stojakovic averaged 9.5 points per game in the first round, 12.5 in the series sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers and 5.0 in the Western Conference Finals.

While speaking with media members Tuesday at American Airlines Center , Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle talked about acquiring the sharpshooter mid-season.
