Why the Dallas Mavericks should bring back Delon Wright

The Mavs need to find an upgrade to make a trade worth it. They should not just dump Wright for no return, especially if they cannot land a piece that improves their roster via free agency. He helped them win games in the regular season. Wright will do so again in 2021.

He is a plus defender that makes an impact on that end of the floor. That comes in handy if the matchup calls for it. The fit may not be perfect, but having an impactful perimeter defender on the bench can be a massive plus.

The Mavs want to land a marquee free agent in 2021. Trading for a player on a multi-year contract could eliminate that chance. The Mavericks have to keep their focus on the ultimate goal. They have something special. Turning it into a championship team is the key now.

The Mavericks also may want to keep Delon Wright for team chemistry reasons. It was a tight-knit group this season that enjoyed spending time together off the court. Dallas values that. They could try to keep the group together as much as possible.

There are more than a few reasons why the Dallas Mavericks would want Delon Wright on the roster next season.
