The Dallas Mavericks moved quickly to complete their roster. They are allowed 15 guaranteed contracts plus two two-way deals heading into the regular season. The Mavs signed four players just hours into free agency to fill their 15-man roster. Things were a bit slower finding their two-way deals, but Dallas wasted no time.
Training camp does not begin until Sept. 28, but the Mavericks have a full roster. NBA teams are allowed to take three additional players into camp to compete for their final roster spots. Dallas announced the signings of Carlik Jones, Feron Hunt, and EJ Onu on Aug. 21 to give them 20 players.
Here is a look at the team’s training camp roster and if any of the non-guaranteed players have a chance to overtake one of the Mavs final 15 spots heading into the regular season.
Dallas Mavericks complete training camp roster
Mavs PR put out the team's full 20-person roster for fans on Saturday afternoon.
Dwight Powell is the longest-tenured Maverick heading into the season. They acquired him via trade in Dec. 2014.
Boban Marjanovic will be the oldest player on the team’s roster. He turned 33 on Aug. 15.
Carlik Jones and Feron Hunt both played well during summer league. All three players the Mavs signed on Saturday are likely to end up with the Texas Legends this season. Jones or Hunt could overtake Nate Hinton for one of the Mavs two-way spots this season.
Finding their way onto the Mavericks regular roster will be difficult unless a trade goes down. Tyrell Terry is likely the 15th man for the Mavericks this season, but the organization believes in his shooting ability and potential. It would take a trade to open up space for any player to find their way onto the roster.
Dallas announcing their training camp squad does not mean they are done making moves. The Mavericks will still entertain trade calls if the move means they can acquire additional talent. Fans will still hear the rumors on Goran Dragic and Lauri Markkanen until both players find new homes.
The Dallas Mavericks already have a talented training camp roster. They expect to make the playoffs and will be looking to make a deep run for the first time since winning the title in 2011. Fans will not want to miss the ride, so stay tuned.
