Dallas Mavericks: 5 Questions Heading into the Offseason
1.) What to do with Chandler Parsons?
This will be the biggest storyline heading into the summer for the Dallas Mavericks, what do they do with Chandler Parsons?
Both of Parsons years in Dallas as resulted in season ending knee surgery and one playoff game where he tried to play on his injured knee. He has shown glimpses of being the playmaker that Dallas has coveted, but simply hasn’t stayed healthy long enough to make re-signing him to a max deal a no-brainer.
But Parsons is still only 27 years old and he loves the city of Dallas. We all know the luck that Dallas has had with free agents and if you have someone to Parsons caliber that wants to be in Dallas, it might be best to give him the money to stick around.

As far as how much will Dallas pay, it looks to be the max. Parsons does have a player option for next year that he could surprise everyone and pick up, but it would be dumb financially for him to walk away from the big pay-day. With teams like the Lakers and Magic looming with max offers, Dallas better be ready to hand out the money come July.
These are just five questions heading into the offseason and you really could list almost five more. Who will be the starting center next year? What veterans do the Mavs try to bring back this summer? Will the Mavs keep four point guards on the roster? Will Wesley Matthews be himself next season? The list goes on.
This summer looks to be another entertaining one in Dallas.
