Dallas Mavericks power forward depth chart after free agent adds
The Mavs have some flexibility here too. Kristaps Porzingis can play the four and will in certain matchups. Dallas excels with him at power forward during the regular season, but their best postseason lineups feature the Unicorn at the five. The Mavericks have two other players that deserve significant run at the four.
Starter: Dorian Finney-Smith
Finney-Smith is likely to retain his starting role, but coach Jason Kidd will play the matchups. Doe-Doe has gone from undrafted rookie fighting for a roster spot in training camp to playing 32.0 minutes per game. He shot 39.4 percent from 3-point range last season and has become the 3-and-D forward every team covets.
Backup: Maxi Kleber
Kleber was slowed by an Achilles injury during the playoffs, which caused his minutes and production to decline throughout the series. He is still progressing his way back to 100 percent.
The 6’10 forward has a unique skill set. He shot 41.0 percent from 3-point range last season and has improved his jumper every year. Kleber abilities to protect the rim and defend on the perimeter makes him one of the Dallas Mavericks’ most versatile defenders. Expect Maxi Kleber to play plenty of minutes, even in a reserve role.
