Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic got a tweet from soon-to-be free agent guard Patrick Beverley that brought about plenty of speculation. See it all here.

Dallas Mavericks fans cannot wait for July 1. They are excited about the Mavs upgrading their roster and returning to the playoffs in 2020. The front office has plenty of work to do before that, though.

The Mavericks will have to decide between adding a star player or multiple rotation pieces. The Mavs can create enough cap space to offer a max contract but would be signing players to minimum deals to round out their roster. Or they could split those dollars up between multiple players and become a deeper team. No word yet on which way the Mavs are leaning.

One of the non-star free agents the Dallas Mavericks have been linked to is Patrick Beverley. Fans can read more about the Mavericks interest here.

Beverley tweets Luka

Patrick Beverley sent out the following tweet on May 6.

That set NBA Twitter off. It fueled speculation that Beverley is looking to join Luka Doncic in Dallas. There was no follow up, so Mavericks fans can draw any conclusions they want from the message.

Mr. 94 Feet would be a fantastic fit on the Mavs. He would bring his tenacious defense. The Mavericks were 17th in defensive rating this season. Beverley is willing to guard every team’s number one option and not demand the ball on the offensive end. That fits perfect next to Luka and Kristaps Porzingis.

Beverley is an underrated floor spacer as well. Over the last four seasons, he has hit 39.4 percent of his 940 3-point attempts. Beverley also hit 45.5 percent on corner 3-pointers in the 2018-2019 season. The Mavericks would be asking him to be a spot-up threat on offense, and Beverley excels in that role.

Final thoughts

Dallas Mavericks fans speculated on a tweet that Patrick Beverley sent to Luka Doncic on May 6. Beverley is an unrestricted free agent this offseason. His playoff performances with the Clippers only increased his value. Expect the 30-year-old guard to get a significant payday this summer.

The Mavericks will be pushing hard to build a contender for next season. The reports have already begun about Dallas’ interest in this summer’s free agents. Expect the Mavs to be active and improve in the coming months.
