Dallas Mavericks Free Agent 3

Norman Powell, wing

Norman Powell is a player who’s sure to get loads of attention this summer. The 28-year-old wing player had a strong run with Toronto and Portland, and depending what happens with CJ McCollum, he should hit the market since Portland can’t afford to sign both.

Powell is an offensive weapon who’s suited to play second fiddle. Playing alongside Damian Lillard, Powell was able to take on a supportive role when he needed to, but also could flip a switch and create offense on his own.

He’s strong playing off-ball and has a natural feel for space. Last season he finished in the 90th percentile in spot-up corner three percentage. That’s something Dallas hasn’t seen since Seth Curry. But again, he’s not just a spot-up shooter and seems to have been underutilized in other offensive areas. He can drive, distribute, and run an offensive play.

Powell isn’t exactly a great defender but he’s not a liability either. He can hold his own just don’t ask him to pick up the slack of others. All in all, Powell is a fine player who would fit the Dallas Mavericks pretty well.

Wrap up

It will be interesting to see what the Dallas Mavericks do with Tim Hardaway Jr because that will say a lot about their ability to shop for others and/or interest in the three players we just discussed. Hardaway and the Mavs are on great terms but with Jason Kidd running the show, it’s hard to know if the Mavs want him back. It also seems as though other teams will be willing to spend more than the Mavs are willing to spend.
