The Cavaliers went back to Dallas to find another small forward. They hope this one has a little more left than the last one.

Richard Jefferson is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Cavs for the veteran’s minimum, a league source confirmed. Jefferson, 35, shot 43 percent from 3-point range primarily as a reserve last season with the Dallas Mavericks.

Jefferson quickly agreed to a deal to return to the Mavericks for the veteran’s minimum at the start of free agency and even helped the Mavericks in their recruitment of free-agent center DeAndre Jordan. But when the Mavericks’ deal with Jordan fell through, the Mavs allowed Jefferson to seek a better situation.
