Dallas Mavericks sign Kyle Lowry in free agency
The Mavs grab Kyle Lowry on a one-year deal worth $30 million. It gives them three stars and immediately jumps them into title contention. The 35-year-old point guard reunites with Kawhi Leonard. The duo won a championship together in Toronto in 2019.
Lowry is no stranger to playing off the ball. Over the last six years combined, the six-foot point guard has shot 38.3 percent from 3-point range. He gets plenty of chances to run the offense and create but has no issues differing to Luka Doncic either. The six-time All-Star is going to play stout defense, make plays, space the floor, and score at an elite level.
Putting two stars around Doncic makes the Mavericks a destination for ring chasers. They will be able to sign another veteran role player with their mid-level exception and round the roster out with experienced playoff performers looking to grab a ring.
Owner Mark Cuban hired Nico Harrison and Jason Kidd to chase big-name free agents. It could take trading for Kawhi Leonard, but that would open the door for the Dallas Mavericks to be a destination for any player on the open market. Here is a look at how they round out the roster.
