Current Mavericks Roster Status

The Dallas Mavericks enter the 2020-21 season with high hopes. After another breakout campaign from superstar point guard Luka Doncic, a lot will be riding on the capable shoulders of the 21-year-old.

Last season, the Mavs lost Kristaps Porzingis through injury in the first round of the playoffs against the Los Angeles Clippers. This proved to be a huge blow for Dallas, as they eventually fell to the Clippers in six games. The Mavs are hoping that their prized big man is able to avoid serious injury in 2021, as Porzingis is expected to play a pivotal role for the squad alongside Doncic.

The Mavs lost a couple of key guys during the offseason, with perhaps none more central than Seth Curry. Dallas did get a capable replacement in return, though, with the Philadelphia 76ers sending over Josh Richardson as part of the Curry deal. Delon Wright was also traded to the Detroit Pistons, while long-time servant J.J. Barea was released. On the other hand, Dallas brought in veteran forward James Johnson, who adds a lot of toughness to the squad.

Dallas' best lineup should consist of Doncic, Richardson, Tim Hardaway Jr., Porzingis, and Dwight Powell. Jalen Brunson, Trey Burke, and Josh Green will all come off the bench as the squad's backup guards, while Dorian Finney-Smith, Wes Iwundu, Maxi Kleber, and James Johnson will fill the forward spots of the second unit.

dallas mavericks Team Analysis

Who Did The Mavericks Recently Sign?

The Mavericks recently signed swingman Wesley Iwundu. The Texas native recently played for the Orlando Magic, the team that drafted him back in 2017. In three years in Orlando, Iwundu suited up for 182 games and even started in 46. Last season, the 25-year old averaged 5.8 points per game in 18.3 minutes of action.

Who Are The Mavericks Targeting In Free Agency?

It's clear that the Mavericks didn't make the splash fans expected them to make during the 2020 offseason. Though they did acquire key pieces like Josh Richardson and James Johnson through a couple of trades, the front office seemingly held back to possibly wait things out until the 2021 offseason where bigger names will be available. They may have struck gold on draft night by snagging promising pick-ups like Josh Green, Tyrell Terry, and Tyler Bey, but obviously, these youngins still need to be tested in the pros.

They were rumored to be in talks with veterans like Marc Gasol, Jae Crowder, Montrezl Harrell, and Serge Ibaka, but these talks all fell through as these vets either wanted more money or an instant chance to win it all. Instead, the Mavs chose to re-sign members from last season like Willie Cauley-Stein and Trey Burke, and they're hoping all of their other additions are enough for them to improve on last season's first-round playoff exit.

Who Did The Mavericks Most Recently Trade For?

The most recent trade the Dallas Mavericks pulled off was shipping out Delon Wright and Justin Jackson in exchange for 12-year vet James Johnson from the Oklahoma City Thunder. Though Wright and Jackson showed promise in their short time in Dallas, the Mavs badly needed to boost their defense and defense is definitely in Johnson's calling card.

What Is The Best Mavericks Roster Of All-Time?

The 2010-2011 Dallas Mavericks is still the best Mavericks roster of all-time. It's hard not to be considered the best after bringing home the franchise's first and only NBA title in their 40-year history. Dirk Nowitzki led the pack with Jason Kidd, Caron Butler, DeShawn Stevenson, and Tyson Chandler completing the team's starting lineup. The Mavs also had key members coming off the bench with Jason Terry, Shawn Marion, and JJ Barea all contributing huge minutes for the 2011 champs.

Although this Dallas unit wasn't the best Mavs team in terms of the regular season, the third-seeded Mavericks took care of business when it came to the postseason. After dropping two games against the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round, the Mavs went on to the second round and swept the second-seeded Los Angeles Lakers, who had Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, and Andrew Bynum trying to win a third consecutive title. They then closed out the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals, who had a young core of future MVPs in Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden, beating them in just five games. In the Finals, the Mavs were able to avenge their 2006 loss against the Miami Heat as they defeated the big three of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh in six games.

What Is The Mavericks' Salary Cap?

The total salary cap for the Dallas Mavericks is $126,780,222 (via Spotrac) coming into the 2020-2021 NBA season. They're over the cap by around $17 million.
