The Dallas Mavericks shocked the NBA world by making an improbable run to the Finals in the 2023-24 season. They eventually came up short against the Boston Celtics but they proved that they will be title contenders for the foreseeable future.

However, the Western Conference is stacked and the Mavericks can't stand pat and expect to be back in the NBA Finals every year. Therefore, they need to upgrade the roster in the offseason. They can turn their attention to familiar faces who know the organization, Jason Kidd, and Luka Doncic to help them get over the hump. Let's take a look at three former Mavericks who are hitting free agency.

Reggie Bullock

The 33-year-old small forward was traded by the Dallas Mavericks last offseason as part of the Grant Williams deal. That move didn't work out for either side as Bullock barely cracked the rotation with the Houston Rockets and the Williams-Dallas marriage was an utter disaster. A reunion could do wonders for both sides.

Bullock had the best stint of his career with the Mavericks between 2021 and 2023. He made 2 threes per game on 37% shooting while guarding multiple positions on the other end. He was a huge factor during the Mavs' Western Conference Finals run in 2022 when he started in 18 games and played 39 minutes per appearance.

At this stage of his career, Bullock is likely a step slower. But his skill set would still be useful for Dallas, especially considering that he would be on a minimum contract.

Any player who can hit open shots and defend reasonably well usually works great next to Luka Doncic. That describes Bullock and the Mavericks should target him in free agency.
