Dallas Mavericks: Resetting the depth chart heading into Orlando
Dallas Mavericks depth chart heading into Orlando: Shooting guard
Starter: Seth Curry
Reserve options: Delon Wright, Trey Burke, Antonius Cleveland, Josh Reaves
Injured: Courtney Lee
Whether fans consider Seth Curry or Tim Hardaway Jr. the starter at the two is a moot point. Both men are going to be in the Mavericks first five on most nights in Orlando. Basketball-Reference leans towards Curry at the two, so that sealed it.
Curry averages just 24.5 minutes per game on the season, but fans saw that trending up. He was consistently playing over 30 just before the suspension. Expect him to hover in the low-30s a night during NBA Disney.
The Mavericks have played Cleveland and Reaves combined 23 NBA minutes this season. Both players will be end of the bench options in Orlando.
That leaves the reserve minutes here to split between Delon Wright and Trey Burke. Coach Carlisle will have the options. Does he need the scoring and playmaking boost from Burke? Or a perimeter defensive ace in Wright? The matchup will dictate which man takes that role in any given game.
Carlisle likely plays Curry, Wright, and Burke together at some point too. The Mavs will be experimenting early on to see which lineups perform best. Going small provides them with options galore at the one, two, and three.
