Roundtable: Dallas Mavericks GM For a Day
As the exciting times of the draft and free agency loom, our staff goes over their plans if they were in charge of the Dallas Mavericks.
The Dallas Mavericks have been building up to this moment for some time now and it is finally just around the corner. With all the player options making their decisions in the next few days, the 2016 NBA Draft coming tomorrow, and free agency starting in just over a week, things are about to get real.
A lot of teams are on the cusp of greatness and have money to spend to try and attain that. Other teams are on the outside looking in with either hopes of playoffs or a chance to challenge the best of the best. Then there are the other teams that know they are years away and are ready to buy and sell to begin or continue their rebuild.
Whatever the case for each team, it makes this possibly the most exciting time of the NBA where we learn just what our team is going to look like in the coming year or years.
The news that Dirk Nowitzki, Chandler Parsons, and Deron Williams are all opting out of their deals is not new to us who have heard of the plans already, but does get us to thinking what exactly the plan is in the coming weeks.
For that reason, the staff of The Smoking Cuban took the time to go over exactly what moves each of us would make if we were in the position of Donnie Nelson, Mark Cuban and the rest of the Mavs front office. What we would do as General Manager for a day is as follows.
