Dallas Mavericks: Check out a playlist courtesy of Maxi Kleber

Dallas Mavericks big man Maxi Kleber provided fans with one of his go-to playlists. Check it out here plus more on his performance this season.

The Dallas Mavericks brought Maxi Kleber to the NBA in 2017. He played so well they rewarded him with a four-year deal worth north of $35 million in the summer of 2019.

Kleber is having the best season of his career in the first year of that deal. The 28-year-old is averaging a career-high 25.7 minutes per game. He produces 9.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks a night.

Kleber has shifted to playing more center this season especially after the season-ending injury to Dwight Powell. He is the primary backup to Kristaps Porzingis. Kleber can both stretch the floor and protect the rim making him a key to the Mavs second unit.

He gives Coach Rick Carlisle options. Kleber can start at the four or five. He is also comfortable playing off the bench. Kleber always brings effort and energy. He never shies away from doing the little things that help the team win games.

Expect Maxi Kleber to be an important piece of the Dallas Mavericks rotation in the playoffs if the season resumes at some point this summer. Coach Carlisle will likely limit him to around 20 minutes per game especially against a team playing small. KP will take the lion’s share of the minutes. Kleber’s ability to defend on the perimeter could earn him more time on the court. Regardless, the 28-year-old will play a crucial role.
