The Re-tooled Mavericks

The past week has been an amazing week in NBA free agency. Dallas is standing with a team that looks to compete but still not quite there. Let’s take a look at the roster as it is right now:

 

Guards: Deron Williams, JJ Barea, Seth Curry, Devin Harris, Wesley Matthews

Forwards: Harrison Barnes, Dirk Nowitzki, Dwight Powell, Justin Anderson

Centers: Andrew Bogut, Salah Mejri

 

I know the team has other players but this will most likely be our core. On paper it is a competitive team but injuries and maybe potential trades could change the outlook of the season. Barnes is a good signing in this market and a for sure upgrade over Chandler Parsons. He’s younger, he’s more athletic, and he can cover a lot more positions. Bogut is a stop gap and Seth Curry will be interesting to see. Our guards are very strong offensively but not so much defensively. We will have more coverage as free agency continues.
