With NBA free agency set to start Thursday night at midnight, our podcast on the Dallas Mavericks in free agency goes live on iTunes.
Dallas enters an eventful night as free agency gets underway and the hopes of landing a big fish are once again at the front and center of the Mavs plans.
With everything surrounding Dallas heading into these opening hours, our podcast crew came together to record a special free agency eve edition podcast to cover all of the latest news surrounding the Dallas Mavericks.
The podcast starts off talking about the recent news being reported about Dwyane Wade and his potential interest in the San Antonio Spurs and Dallas Mavericks (6:00). We discuss if we buy or sell the rumor and if Wade would ever suit up in Dallas.
After that, we move on to the NBA draft and the trades (11:00) surrounding it. We debate on which team was the winner of all of the trades and dive into the draft itself. Which teams stood out on draft night and who were some steals of the draft?
We also examine the Maverick’s selecting of A.J. Hammons and the potential impact he could have on the team next year.
Summer League (33:20) was our next brief topic as we touch on some players to watch in both the Orlando and Las Vegas Summer League for the Dallas Mavericks.
Then we hit free agency wide open.

Then we turned our attention to potential smaller free agents that Dallas might look at to fill out the roster. Cheaper free agents in the case of landing Conley AND Whiteside to go along with options if they don’t land the two big fish.
The episode is wrapped up with each of our surprise free agent predictions that will happen in the league. From Dwight Howard to a smaller Eastern Conference team making a big splash, craziness is about to happen around the league.
