Dallas Mavericks rotation after J.J. Redick trade

Expect coach Rick Carlisle to stick with a nine-man rotation for now. He may shorten it as the playoffs approach, but the team has options. The Mavs can matchup against any opponent and create mismatches because of their depth. On an average night with everyone healthy, their rotation should breakdown like this.

Starters: Luka Doncic, Kristaps Porzingis, Josh Richardson, Dorian Finney-Smith, Maxi Kleber

Second unit: Jalen Brunson, Tim Hardaway Jr., J.J. Redick, Willie Cauley-Stein or Dwight Powell

Outside nightly rotation: Trey Burke, Boban Marjanovic, Nicolo Melli, Josh Green, Tyrell Terry, Tyler Bey, Nate Hinton

Carlisle will mix and match including riding hot hands late in games. Brunson, Hardaway Jr., or Redick could be part of the closing lineup if they are knocking down shots. He can use Burke or Boban to mix things up and try to give his team a spark.

Melli could get a few opportunities to play, but he will not be part of the nightly rotation. Redick will take Burke’s minutes, plus get additional time from Brunson, THJ, or JRich if he is playing well.

Grading the J.J. Redick trade. Next

The Mavericks are excited to have one of the best shooters in the NBA on their squad. He will help space the floor as Luka Doncic feasts in the paint. Fans should be excited because the Dallas Mavericks promise to be a dangerous team down the stretch. Do not miss a second of the action.
