Immanuel Quickley’s fit on the Dallas Mavericks

In the 2019 offseason, rumors circulated that the Mavs wanted to sign Patrick Beverley or Danny Green. Both are proven defenders and long-distance shooters. In a wing and guard driven league, the Mavericks need to be able to defend on the perimeter.

The problem for Dallas is they want players that can help them win now. Quickley is likely a few years away from being ready for significant minutes. He is also only an off-ball threat. The Mavs have an array of 3-point shooters on their roster.

Quickley may fit in on the bench unit because of his defense. The Mavs’ current unit struggles on that end of the floor.

It does not seem like Quickley will be high on the Mavericks board. Dallas has been involved in trade rumors, though. If they find themselves with a pick in the mid-30s to early 40s, Quickley could be an interesting selection if he is still on the board.

Any shooter can fit on the Dallas Mavericks. Quickley stands out because of his added defensive potential. The Mavs may look to sneak in a more creative point guard like Kira Lewis Jr. at 18, but don’t rule out Immanuel Quickley at 31.
