The Dallas Mavericks will be an intriguing team to follow in NBA free agency. Tobias Harris makes sense as a potential fit alongside Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving in Dallas, something that Brett Siegel of ClutchPoints recently mentioned. And according to Ian Begley of SNY, the Mavs are interested in the veteran forward.

Begley also notes that the Utah Jazz have interest in Harris. Harris is an established veteran who will catch the attention of a number of teams around the league. At 31 years old, he likely still has multiple good years of basketball remaining.

Mavericks general manager Nico Harrison told reporters on Friday that one of the team's priorities is re-signing Derrick Jones Jr. It is uncertain how aggressive Dallas will be in the trade and free agency markets. Adding another scorer to compliment Irving and Doncic would provide a boost during the 2024-25 season.

Of course, rumors have swirled about the team's interest in drafting Bronny James. It is unlikely, but if Dallas ended up selecting Bronny in the NBA Draft rumors would immediately begin linking LeBron James to the Mavericks.

In other words, rumors are going to continue to come and go. But would adding Tobias Harris be a good move for Dallas?

Breaking down Mavericks' possible Tobias Harris acquisition

Harris is a versatile player. At 6'7″, he is capable of guarding multiple positions. He can help out in the post but is also a reliable wing player.

Harris' scoring prowess will intrigue the Mavs. PJ Washington displayed signs of being the third scorer on the team but he was inconsistent at times. Adding Harris would take less pressure off Washington, which could lead to overall better results.

Harris averaged 17.2 points per game on 48.7 percent field goal and 35.3 percent three-point shooting in 2023-24. He also recorded 6.5 rebounds and 3.1 assists per outing. Adding help on the boards is never a bad idea and Harris' career 6.2 rebounds per game prove he can help in that department.

Again, though, the most intriguing element of a Tobias Harris acquisition would be his scoring output alongside Doncic and Irving. He can play on the wing and be a catch-and-shoot threat, but Harris is also someone who is capable of making things happen inside of the three-point line.

One would imagine that Harris would start along with Irving and Doncic. PJ Washington and Derrick Jones Jr. (if he re-signs) would be other options to start, while either Dereck Lively II or Daniel Gafford would round out the starting lineup at the center position.

Mavs' offseason needs

In all reality, the Mavericks do not need to make any massive changes during the offseason. They played extremely well throughout the second-half of the season. Their momentum continued into the playoffs, as Dallas upset the odds in the Western Conference and reached the NBA Finals.

That doesn't mean they shouldn't make any moves, though.

A third scorer makes a lot of sense. Dallas may look to capitalize on potential trade assets to improve the roster as well. Rebounding and size were previously concerns, but the Mavs addressed those questions with their trade deadline acquisitions of Gafford and Washington.

It projects to be an especially interesting offseason for Dallas coming off their NBA Finals appearance.
