Dallas Mavericks: Will they move on from Delon Wright?

The Dallas Mavericks just wrapped up a season of growth. They were back in the playoffs for the first time since 2016. The Mavs gave the title favorite LA Clippers a test in the first round. Luka Doncic jumped into the superstar tier. Dallas’ role players nearly all had career years too.

Delon Wright produced strong numbers during the regular season. His field goal and 3-point percentages were well-above their career marks. Wright also produced 6.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.2 steals in 21.5 minutes per game. He played in 73 of the Mavericks 75 regular-season games.

Things changed in the playoffs, though. Wright slipped to the fringes of the rotation. He did not play in two of the six games including the last game of the Mavericks season. That brings about an important question moving forward.

Will the Dallas Mavericks trade Delon Wright this offseason?

The Mavs want to continue climbing the ladder towards a championship. That means improving their roster heading into next season. Some of it will come from internal growth. Expect Luka to be his best version yet in 2021. The Mavs could be looking to add a few pieces too.

Assuming Tim Hardaway Jr. accepts his $18.975 million player option, Dallas will have virtually no cap space. They could use the mid-level exception. The rest of the moves will have to be made through the draft, trades, or signing players to minimum contracts. Expect Dallas to be aggressive, but with an eye on free agency in 2021.

Will the Dallas Mavericks trade away Delon Wright as they continue to improve their roster? Let us examine both sides of the argument before reaching a verdict.
