The Dallas Mavericks are looking to reload their roster after a good 2019-2020 NBA season.
The NBA was able to successfully complete the 2019-2020 season in Orlando, but as the Lakers lifted the Larr O’Brien trophy for a league-leading 17 times, questions about when the subsequent season would start naturally followed.
However, the question need not be asked anymore because the league unanimously agreed to restart the season on December 22nd, just in time for the annual NBA Christmas showcase. The Dallas Mavericks will likely be featured on Christmas day after their successful 2019 campaign.
With that said, Dallas will have to improve their play in hopes of not only competing with the best teams in the league but also winning the tough matchups specifically in clutch time that the team struggled to finish last season.
In order to progress from last season, the team will need to make some adjustments; the most impactful ones will likely come during free agency. That was the case last offseason when the team re-signed Dorian Finney, Maxi Kleber, and Dwight Powell; signed Seth Curry to return to Dallas, and traded for Delon Wright in a sign-and-trade with the Memphis Grizzlies. Dallas drafted Isaiah Roby in the second round and later traded him to Oklahoma City for Willie Cauley-Stein.
I think you get my point.
The issue with this offseason is the 2020 free agency class not only doesn’t have enough game-changing talent but also it pales in comparison to the 2021 free agency class which is headlined by the one and only two-time MVP Giannis Antentoukoumnpo.
But, Dallas recognizes their championship window has officially started, and wasting them not trying to accumulate talent that can potentially elevate the team is how you waste important years of the Luka Doncic era in Dallas.
So let’s find them some talent today that might be available through trades… or not?
