Former Dallas Mavericks forward Doug McDermott receives hefty payday
The former Mav that landed the largest contract this offseason was Doug McDermott. The 29-year-old forward earned a three-year $41.2 million contract from the San Antonio Spurs. McDermott is one of the best 3-point shooters in the league, and San Antonio has struggled in that area in recent years. The 6’7 wing will be a massive upgrade for the Spurs.
McDermott was traded to the Mavericks in Feb. 2018. He was always an above-average shooter, but he broke out in Dallas. McDermott shot 49.4 percent from 3-point range over his 26 games with the Mavericks. He enjoyed his time in Dallas playing for head coach Rick Carlisle, but the Mavs did not make him a restricted free agent in the 2018 offseason and watched him sign a three-year $22 million deal with the Pacers that summer.
Doug McDermott will be a key rotation piece for the Spurs this season. Mavs fans will get four up-close looks at the veteran sharpshooter to see if the deal is working out.
