Mavericks trade for Patrick Beverley in hypothetical deal: Should they do it?
Why Patrick Beverley is a fit with the Dallas Mavericks
Beverley was named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team on Sept. 9. It marks the third time in his career that Pat Bev has made the All-Defensive teams. Fans know he will take on any player. Beverley is never afraid to guard full court. The 32-year-old is always in the opposition’s face and brings a ton of energy to his team.
The Mavericks would love that defensive presence. Pat Bev becomes Dallas’ best option the second he joins the team. His ability to guard wings and forwards would be a welcomed sight too.
It is not just the defense. Beverley is a fantastic 3-point shooter. Since joining the Clippers, he has shot 39.4 percent over 548 attempts. The Mavs were second in the NBA in 3-pointers attempted this season. Fans know they love to let it fly from downtown.
Beverley would be a fantastic floor spacer in Dallas. Luka Doncic would create plenty of open looks which the 32-year-old would sink.
Pat Bev is the perfect guard for the Dallas Mavericks. He spaces the floor and plays gritty defense. Beverley gives the team toughness, perimeter defense, and another consistent shooter around their 21-year-old superstar. What more could the Mavs ask for this offseason?
