Dallas Mavericks offense: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Let us start off by saying the Kidd-Gilchrist played a total of 71 minutes with the Mavericks. Luka Doncic played more than that after the first two games were finished. MKG’s minutes in Dallas are the smallest of sample sizes.

The forward took seven shots with the Mavs and made just one of them. He scored four points and had three assists in his nine games.

It is the story of his NBA career on the offensive end of the floor. MKG is not a floor spacer or scorer. He does not dish out assists. He shoots well from the field because he attacks the rim. It will be interesting to see what if any contributions the Mavs can get from Kidd-Gilchrist on this end.

The sample size is too small to take anything from the advanced metrics. Even adding in his time with the Hornets, it is only 231 minutes played on the season. That just is not enough.

Offensive grade: D+

The Mavericks got almost no contributions from Michael Kidd-Gilchrist on this end of the floor. The small sample size is a massive reason why. Stay tuned to see what the 26-year-old can do after training camp 2.0.
