The Dallas Mavericks want to make the playoffs next season. Patrick Beverley has the skill and personality to help the Mavs take that step.

The Dallas Mavericks need to add a guard that adds a defensive presence. There is unquestionable offensive potential with Kristaps Porzingis and Luka Doncic as the key pieces in a promising roster. Besides the star level free agents, there is one obvious choice to push Dallas to the next level. Look no further than the defensive stud, Patrick Beverley.

Yes, the maniacal defender had his fair share of run-ins with Mavericks players and coaches, but business is business.

Dallas doesn’t necessarily need another star on its roster to build a contender. It would be convenient for Coach Carlisle to have another NBA All-Star to mold. However, Beverley is quite the fitting consolation prize, if players such as Kemba Walker decide to skip past the great city of Dallas.

Dallas, even with Dwight Powell’s decision to accept his player option, will still have nearly $31 million to work this summer.

Every year Mavs fans get their hopes high, only for Dallas to lose out on star players. This season seems to be different, though. The Mavericks core is young and promising, the bench is sprinkled with adequate pieces, and Rick Carlisle is still a top-five coach in the NBA.

Patrick Beverley, with his fiery play, would spark a much-needed edge to the team. Dallas is a perfect fit for the off-ball point guard. Here is a look at the pros and cons of the Dallas Mavericks signing Beverley.
