After just one season in Dallas, forward Elton Brand has signed with the Atlanta Hawks on Monday (July 15).

While terms of the contract were not disclosed, ESPN.com reports that it will be for a one-year contract.

“Elton brings a veteran presence, both on and off the court and is a welcomed addition to our locker room,” Hawks president of basketball operations Danny Ferry said in a statement. “His ability to play center or power forward will give our frontcourt a great deal of versatility and we think he will be an outstanding fit to our program.”

Last season, while playing for the Dallas Mavericks, the 34-year-old averaged 7.2 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 21 minutes per game.
