Dallas Mavericks: Why they should sign Harry Giles this offseason
Dallas Mavericks should sign Harry Giles this offseason
The Dallas Mavericks arrived in Orlando and are ready to begin their preparations for the season’s restart. Dallas kicks off their games that count on July 31 against the Houston Rockets.
The Mavs will leave Disney World after snapping their playoff drought. They are hoping to make it past the first round for the first time since 2011 too. Luka Doncic and his teammates will need to play well to make that happen.
After a champion is crowned in Orlando, the NBA will quickly pivot into the offseason. The draft and free agency are scheduled to begin just days after the finals wrap up. That means plenty of action is on the horizon for fans.
Harry Giles will be a free agent: Dallas Mavericks interested?
The Mavs will be looking to build their team into a title contender this offseason. Luka Doncic is still on his rookie contract. Dallas’ cap space hinges on Tim Hardaway’s player option. If he opts in, the Mavericks will be tight on dollars to spend. THJ could decide to search for a long-term deal freeing up some room for the Mavericks.
One of the most interesting names on the market will be Harry Giles. The Kings declined his option in Oct. That means the 22-year-old is going to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Giles never had the opportunity to fully prove himself in Sacramento.
The Mavs capitalized on the Kings’ decision to pass on Doncic in the 2018 draft. Could they do it again by signing Giles? Here are three reasons why the Mavericks should go after him.
