Dallas Mavericks wing Dorian Finney-Smith agreed to a new three-year deal with the team. Here is an in-depth look and a grade for that signing.

The Dallas Mavericks took an interesting approach to free agency 2019. They sat back patiently and took care of their own while still leaving room to absorb a couple of contracts now that the top free agents are off the market.

Every free agent in every professional league hits the open market with the hopes of coming out with a massive contract for their talents.

Once again this summer, there were some insane deals that were agreed upon that could cripple NBA teams in the future. Tobias Harris led the way in money with a max contract of $190 million over five years. Milwaukee Bucks and Khris Middleton were not too far behind with an agreed-upon $178 million over five years. The Mavs took their time and avoiding those massive deals.

The Mavericks have brought back all three restricted free agents and have taken care of J.J. Barea in the opening days. Signing Kristaps Porzingis, Maxi Kleber, and Dorian Finney-Smith was important to Dallas. They also signed an extension with Dwight Powell.

The Mavs signed two new talents as well. Seth Curry will return next season. He is one of the NBA’s premier 3-point shooters. They also agreed with Boban Marjanovic to be the team’s third center.

Dorian Finney-Smith received a $12 million contract for the next three years. That appears like a significant bargain. Let us take a look at the deal and why the Dallas Mavericks made a stellar signing.
