DALLAS (AP) - Charlie Villanueva will return for a second season in Dallas after earning a reserve role as a 3-point threat and making the playoffs for the first time in his 10-year career.

Villanueva announced his decision Tuesday on Twitter. He reportedly will get a one-year contract for the veteran minimum of $1.5 million after making the roster on a non-guaranteed deal out of training camp last season.

The 30-year-old Villanueva averaged 6.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in 64 games for the Mavericks, including one start. He was fourth on the team with 83 3-pointers.

The former top-10 pick started his career with a season in Toronto before spending three years with Milwaukee and five in Detroit. Villanueva's career averages are 10.9 points and 4.8 rebounds.
