DALLAS — Former Charlotte Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has agreed to sign with the Dallas Mavericks, league sources told ESPN.

The Mavs have to waive a player to create an open roster spot before making the move official.

Kidd-Gilchrist, the No. 2 overall pick of the 2012 draft, had fallen out of the Hornets’ rotation this season before receiving a buyout last week.

At 6-foot-6, 232 pounds, Kidd-Gilchrist has earned a reputation as a strong wing defender. He will provide the Mavs a physical option to guard powerful, elite scorers on Western Conference playoff teams such as James Harden, LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard.

Kidd-Gilchrist’s jump shot is his biggest flaw, as he’s a career 28% 3-point shooter. He averaged 8.6 points and 5.5 rebounds in 433 games for Charlotte.
