Grading the Dallas Mavericks agreeing to sign Reggie Bullock

Nico Harrison and the Mavericks also swooped in and agreed to sign Bullock away from the Knicks. The deal is three years for $30.5 million, per Shams Charania. The veteran had made just over $19 million during his first eight seasons in the NBA, so it was a payday too good to turn down.

Bullock continues to improve his game. He has four straight seasons of starting experience. The 6’6 wing averaged 10.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 0.8 steals in 30.0 minutes per game last year in New York. He shot 44.2 percent from the field, 41.0 percent on his threes, and 90.9 percent from the free-throw line.

The Mavericks want shooting and length around Luka Doncic on the wings. Bullock offers both. The 30-year-old will knock down open shots and should help Dallas jump back near the top of the league in offensive efficiency.

Dallas Mavericks grade for agreeing to sign Reggie Bullock: B

The deal was not a home run, but a solid piece of business for the Mavericks. They handed out a market value contract to a skilled wing that will improve their floor space, upgrade their defense, and give Dallas a bit more versatility. Agreeing to sign Bullock earned the Mavs a B grade.
