Meet Dallas Mavericks summer league roster: Devontae Shuler- G
Shuler went undrafted in 2021 after four years at Ole Miss. The 6’2 guard averaged 15.3 points, 3.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.6 steals in 32.8 minutes per game last season. He played well on both ends of the floor but is a man without a position in the NBA.
Shuler shot just 34.0 percent from 3-point range over 523 NCAA attempts. The 6’2 guard is not a lead ball-handler or creator but struggles to space the floor when playing off the ball. He will be looking to showcase an improved jumper during summer league.
Meet Dallas Mavericks summer league roster: Devonte Patterson- F
Patterson failed to get drafted in 2020. He joined the Mavs for training camp but was cut before the start of the regular season. The 24-year-old Texas native would have benefitted tremendously from a normal 2020. Patterson will finally get the chance to showcase his skills in the Las Vegas Summer League.
The 6’7 wing spent two years at Ranger college before finishing his NCAA career with two seasons at Prairie View A&M. Patterson averaged 15.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 3,0 assists, and 1.4 steals in 28.8 minutes per game as a senior. He will be looking to make the most out of his second opportunity with the Dallas Mavericks and earn a two-way contract for the 2021-2022 season.
