The Dallas Mavericks agree to a deal with Terry Larrier
By Kohl Rast
The Dallas Mavericks continue to make moves prior to training camp coming up. This time, the Mavs add 6’8″ Terry Larrier of the University of Connecticut. Larrier played in a couple summer league games for Dallas.
The Dallas Mavericks roster continues to grow heading into training camp. With the additions of Ding Yanyuhang and Daryl Macon over the past week, it seemed like the Mavs may be nearing the end of their training camp invites, but the newest player to have a shot at the Mavs roster is now former UConn forward, Terry Larrier.
Larrier played the last two years with UConn, averaging just under 14 points and 5 rebounds per game. He shot nearly 38% from beyond the arc, which would be a nice addition to the team with his size. Larrier also shot over 76% from free throw during his time at UConn, which generally gets better once players reach the NBA.
Although it has not been announced yet, Larrier’s deal is likely non-guaranteed and is starting out as mostly a training camp invite. He will really have to prove himself if he wants a chance at a roster spot with Dallas, but the most likely outcome is definitely a spot with the Texas Legends of the G-League.
Dallas is doing well adding more wing options for the team going forward, but it would be nice to have another wing that is for sure going to be an impact player in the rotation. That is definitely the weakest part of the roster at this point and the addition of Larrier makes that pretty clear. We now have added a handful of wings to the roster, including Kostas Antetokounmpo, Ding Yanyuhang, Ryan Broekhoff, and Larrier. Most of these guys will be fighting for a roster spot.
We look forward to seeing what Terry Larrier can offer the Mavs and wish him the best of luck going forward. Whether he is a Maverick or a Texas Legend, he will have support from this fanbase.
