The Dallas Mavericks did not add the marquee free agent they were hoping for this offseason, but they improved their depth by signing Reggie Bullock and Sterling Brown. The two wings give them some versatility and flexibility heading into the 2021-2022 season.
The Mavs biggest offseason move was signing superstar Luka Doncic to a five-year supermax extension worth an estimated $207 million. It was a no-brainer for both sides, but an important step that clears up their present and future.
Bullock and Brown were not the only two additions for the Mavericks. They traded for Moses Brown in the Josh Richardson deal. The Mavs also brought back Tim Hardaway Jr., Boban Marjanovic, and Willie Cauley-Stein. Dallas is a deeper team that has multiple position battles shaping up.
