Four Things I Don’t Want the Dallas Mavericks To Do
2.) Keep All the Veterans Past the Trade Deadline
The second thing I DON’T want the Mavs to do is keep all their veterans past the trade deadline.
With the Mavericks season headed to the bottom of the league (the very bottom), there isn’t a reason to hold on to all the veterans on the roster when one or two of them could net some future value in return.
The two obvious names are Andrew Bogut and Deron Williams as both veterans are on expiring deals that could help a contender make a playoff push, help a team get off a contract, or help a team get to the cap floor.
So if Dallas is going to be at the bottom of the league and they have expiring veterans who could net future or young assets, why wouldn’t they do it?
If February comes and a team is offering a first round pick or a young flyer for either Bogut and/or Williams, you have to make that happen.
The worst thing you could do in a rebuild is be the worst team in the league, turn down a nice offer for an expiring vet, and then watch him walk in the offseason.
The rebuild is on, and Dallas must take advantage of teams possibly willing to give assets for one of their aging vets.
