Dallas Mavericks guard Daryl Macon shared a must-see Instagram post. Plus, we take a look at his status with the team for next season.

The Dallas Mavericks signed undrafted rookie Daryl Macon to a two-way contract last summer. That meant that Macon would play most of the season with Texas Legends in the G-League.

He lit up for the Legends. Macon averaged 19.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 1.1 steals in 34.4 minutes per game. Despite his strong play, Macon got limited opportunities with the Mavs. He played in only eight games and averaged just 11.3 minutes a night.

Macon had a stretch late in the season to show off what he could do. He played over 21 minutes in three of four straight games from April 1 to April 7. Macon averaged 8.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 25.6 minutes per over that short stretch.
