Breaking down this summer’s upcoming Dallas Mavericks free agents, as well as those with player and team options for 2022-23.
The first two games of the 2022 Western Conference Finals didn’t go the Dallas Mavericks’ way, but there’s a reason this group is one of only four teams still playing in the NBA. Look no further than what they did a week ago to the Phoenix Suns, the top seed in the West, in Game 7 of their series.
The Mavs have made one thing abundantly clear: They intend to build a championship team in the Luka Dončić Era.
And because it’s never too early to start looking ahead, now’s as good a time as any to think about how Dallas could keep its momentum going into the offseason.
The Mavericks do not have many outright free agents, but a key piece may be on the move and head coach Jason Kidd, GM Nico Harrison, and owner Mark Cuban will have to navigate free agency well in order for the franchise to continue its ascent.
Check out Boardroom’s full breakdown of imminent Mavericks free agents, as well as a snapshot of the team’s salary cap outlook as things currently stand.
