Dallas Mavericks: Three Things I Don’t Want
Don’t Bring Back the Four Veteran Guards
Last season, Dallas went the entire season with Deron Williams, J.J. Barea, Devin Harris, and Raymond Felton on the roster and logging quality minutes.
This season, I hope that is not the case.
J.J. Barea and Devin Harris are still both under contract for around $4 million dollars next season. Meanwhile, Williams and Felton hit free agency where a plethora of teams have cap space to sign them for bigger contracts.
For me, I want Deron back only if the Mavericks do not land Mike Conley. If that happens, I want Harris traded or Felton walking in free agency. If Dallas lands Conley, I would guess they wouldn’t have the money to bring back Felton.
If Dallas is going to hold a fourth point guard on the roster, I would rather it be a younger prospect that could grow and hold a cheaper cap number that would allow Dallas to spend elsewhere.
Oh, Deron, J.J., and Ray all turned 32 years old this past week.
