The deal is reportedly for $6.7 million.
“The $1.5 million cap hit in year one is the largest salary in NBA history for a player selected out of college in the second round,” Marks noted.
Roby is a 6-foot-8 forward out of Nebraska and was selected by the Detroit Pistons with the No. 45 overall draft pick. He was quickly traded to the Mavericks.
He averaged 11.8 points and 6.9 rebounds with the Conrhuskers as a junior last season, declaring for the draft without hiring an agent.
“Prior to signing Roby, the Mavericks had 13 players on guaranteed contracts on their books,” Luke Adams of HoopsRumors noted. “Roby will be the 14th, while J.J. Barea – who has agreed to a new deal with Dallas but has yet to officially sign it – figures to be No. 15.”
