EXCLUSIVE: Ex-Lakers’ Alex Fudge ready to join Mavericks, ‘learn’ from Luka Doncic, Kyrie Irving


The Dallas Mavericks recently signed forward Alex Fudge to a two-way contract. Fudge was previously on a two-way deal with the Los Angeles Lakers and appeared in four games with LA. He performed well at the G League level, averaging 7.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks per outing across 18 games with the South Bay Lakers.

Prior to Tuesday’s game against the Indiana Pacers, Mavericks head coach Jason Kidd revealed what Fudge brings to Dallas.


“I think when you talk about being athletic, he’s going to spend most of the time in the G League,” Kidd said. “He gives us another opportunity to develop. We’ve done that at a very high level here. And hopefully we can do that with Alex.”


Kidd has praised the Mavericks organization as the team continues to develop young talent. AJ Lawson is the latest example of someone the Mavs helped develop and he recently received a standard NBA contract after previously being on a two-way deal. Kidd is hopeful that Fudge can follow a similar path.


Fudge is excited to join the Mavericks organization. He took some time for an exclusive interview with ClutchPoints on Tuesday.
