The Dallas Mavericks are looking to improve the roster this offseason just like every other NBA team. There is a lot more pressure to get this right for the Mavs than most.
One of the primary reasons is simply because Luka Doncic is ready to win now. After a second straight early playoff exit, patience has to be wearing thin with both the fans and the players. In light of the recent front office overhaul, the same action needs to be done with the current Mavs roster because it isn’t working.
The team needs to bring in another guy who can help soften the load that Luka Doncic carries on a nightly basis. Here are the five best options that the Dallas Mavericks can explore in free agency to upgrade at the point guard position.
Best free agent point guards for Dallas Mavericks to target: 5. Spencer Dinwiddie
This one may come as a surprise, but Spencer Dinwiddie is one of the more intriguing free agent point guards on the market. Yes, there are reasons to be concerned, but that comes with almost every player outside of superstars. The 6’5 combo guard is coming off an ACL injury, but he has already been cleared for basketball activities, according to Shams Charania.
Factoring in his injury, the Mavericks might be able to even sign Spencer Dinwiddie at a discount. Will he take less money? This is still to be determined. The Dallas Mavericks will have to be patient and monitor the market, but Mark Cuban and company will also have to remain aggressive as building a more talented roster around Luka Doncic is the only thing that matters this offseason.
Yes, this is move may have some risk, but the upside is there. In 2019, Spencer Dinwiddie averaged 20.6 points and almost eight assists per game. His scoring and passing ability would give opposing defenses another headache to deal with when facing the Dallas Mavericks.
