The Dallas Mavericks have set an offseason goal of improving their roster around Luka Doncic. They have a new lead executive in Nico Harrison and a fresh head coach in Jason Kidd. The new leadership will look to jump the Mavs into title contention in 2022.
The Mavs have already made some minor moves. Josh Richardson was traded to Boston for Moses Brown in a deal that allowed the Mavericks to clear nearly $10 million in cap space. They also picked up their team option on Willie Cauley-Stein’s contract to ensure he will be back next season. Dallas has 11 players under contract as free agency opens on Aug. 2.
Including their two-way players from last season, the Mavs have six players heading into free agency. Who will they bring back? Are others destined to sign elsewhere? Here is a prediction of where every Dallas free agent signs this summer.
Predicting where every Dallas Mavericks free agent will sign
The Mavericks have four roster spots, plus two two-way contracts to fill this offseason. That number could change if Dallas makes more trades. They will need to clear more cap space if their plan of adding a marquee free agent and re-signing Tim Hardaway Jr. becomes a reality. The easiest way to accomplish that is via trade.
There will be new Dallas Mavericks next season, but fans will see plenty of familiar faces too. Boban Marjanovic, Nate Hinton, Tyler Bey, Nicolo Melli, J.J. Redick, and Hardaway Jr. all hit the open market on Monday. Here is a prediction of where every Mavs free agent signs this offseason.
