It seems like every summer the Dallas Mavericks drastically alter their roster. From letting Tyson Chandler, Caron Butler, and J.J. Barea walk for Lamar Odom, Vince Carter, and Delonte West then bringing in O.J. Mayo, Darren Collison, Chris Kaman, and many other one-year deals, then ditching them for Monta Ellis, Jose Calderon, Samuel Dalembert, and others, to why they’ve done this offseason.
The team started the offseason with a big bang. They brought back Tyson Chandler and his New York teammate Raymond Felton in a trade with the Knicks. In the deal they gave up starters Jose Calderon and Samuel Dalembert along with other pieces.
Things then got quiet for sometime, as free agency was held hostage while waiting on LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony to make their decisions.
