Shooting guard for Dallas Mavericks to target: 1. DeMar DeRozan
The Mavs need to push for DeRozan. The four-time All-Star is the secondary ball-handler they have been dying to pair alongside Luka Doncic. DeRozan averaged 21.6 points, 6.9 assists, 4.2 rebounds, and 0.9 steals in 33.7 minutes per game this season.
The 6’6 wing is an excellent mid-range player and an extremely underrated playmaker. If DeRozan does come to Dallas, the plan should be for him to be on the court anytime Luka Doncic is off. Staggering the two stars would give Dallas a strong playmaker and elite scorer on the floor at all times.
DeRozan is not a 3-point shooter. He was 19 of 74 on long-range shots this season, but it does not matter. Opposing teams cannot leave him open because he is an elite driver.
Demar DeRozan is an assassin from the mid-range. He hit a buzzer-beater against Dallas this season and is one of the best in this area every year.
The Dallas Mavericks need someone that can create shots and take some pressure off Luka Doncic. Will the new Mavericks front office finally be able to land a big free agent? Stay tuned for what promises to be an exciting offseason.
