Dallas Mavericks most likely to be traded this offseason: 3. Tyrell Terry

The Mavs selected Terry with the opening pick of the second round in 2020. He drew comparisons to Seth Curry, but Dallas knew he was a project. The 20-year-old played just 56 minutes for the Mavericks last season and was strictly limited to mop-up duty.

Terry showed flashes in the G League bubble. He averaged 14.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.1 steals in 29.4 minutes per game. The 6’2 guard showcased an improved handle and better playmaking chops. He is still working to make his body NBA-ready, and he struggled a bit with his jumper in the small sample.

The Mavericks want to compete for the championship in 2022. Terry is unlikely to be ready for significant minutes next season. Dallas could look to package him as a young developmental piece to a rebuilding team. It is one way the Mavs land an impactful veteran this summer.

Draft picks likely have more trade value than Tyrell Terry, but some teams may covet the guard. The 20-year-old has plenty of potential, even if he has not showcased it in the NBA yet. Expect the Dallas Mavericks to hold onto Terry unless a deal they cannot refuse comes along.
