The Dallas Mavericks plan to target wings that can play on both ends of the court if they fail to sign a big name free agent.

The Dallas Mavericks are scouting and formulating a plan for this summer’s free agency. They want to contend next season. The Mavs are expected to spend their cap space to improve their roster.

Marc Stein reported that the Mavericks’ primary free agent targets are Kemba Walker and Khris Middleton. What happens if the Mavs strike out in signing the All-Star talents, though?

Target wings

The Dallas Mavericks are planning to attempt to sign wings that thrive on both offense and defense according to Stein.

Going further, the Mavs should want players that can shoot 3-pointers and play above average defense. Dallas was fourth in 3-point attempts this season but tied for 28th in 3-point percentage. They also ranked near the middle of the pack in defensive rating. Improving those two areas should boost the Mavericks in the standings.

There will be no shortage of available wings that could help the Mavs this summer. The Smoking Cuban will be delving deep into the best possible targets for the Dallas Mavericks in the coming days, so stay tuned.

Final thoughts

The Dallas Mavericks are expected to be active during free agency. They will be targeting all the big names, but the Mavs have not had much success signing them in recent years. Plan B for the organization is acquiring wings that can defend and shoot.

Expect the Mavericks to also target some veteran presence for the bench. They are currently a young team. Having two centerpieces under 25 years old is a positive for the future, but those two have never played a playoff game. Having a veteran with experience should be high on the Mavs priority list.
