Dallas Mavericks agree to deal with Reggie Bullock: What does he add?
By Tyler Watts
The Dallas Mavericks have been busy as free agency kicked off on Aug. 2. It was the team’s first with Nico Harrison as their lead executive, and the new general manager and president of basketball operations quickly made a splash. He agreed to re-sign both Tim Hardaway Jr. and Boban Marjanovic just minutes after talks were allowed. Harrison followed it up by landing a deal with sharpshooter Sterling Brown, but he was not done there.
According to Marc Stein, the Mavs also agreed to a deal with Reggie Bullock. The veteran accepted a three-year deal worth $30.5 million, per Shams Charania. It will be by far the most money Bullock has ever made. His previous career-high in a season was $4.2 million.
What does Reggie Bullock bring to Dallas? Let us take a closer look.
Dallas Mavericks agree to deal with Reggie Bullock: What does he bring to Dallas?
Bullock is a 6’6 wing with nine years of NBA experience. He averaged 10.9 points on 44.2 percent shooting from the field in 30.0 minutes per game last season as a starter for the New York Knicks. The 30-year-old is a lethal shooter that has connected on 39.2 percent of his 1,428 career 3-point attempts.
The Mavericks added another wing with length and floor spacing ability. Bullock has primarily been a starter in each of the last four seasons. He will knock down open shots, but cannot handle the ball or make plays. Dallas added another lights-out shooter to complement Luka Doncic. Bullock was an underrated contributor for the Knicks last season and could have his best years yet in Dallas.
The Dallas Mavericks are not done making moves. They still want to land a marquee free agent to help push them into title contention. Expect Dallas to remain aggressive as they look to round out their roster. Keep it locked to The Smoking Cuban for all the news and analysis on the organization’s offseason transactions.
