The Dallas Mavericks are gearing up for another season. Luka Doncic will be leading the way as training camp kicks off on Sept. 28. The Mavs are looking to make a deep playoff run for the first time since 2011, and there will be no shortage of storylines this season. Can Luka win his first MVP? How will the team play under new head coach Jason Kidd? Can Kristaps Porzingis return to his All-Star form? It promises to be an exciting campaign.
The Mavs have a full 15-man roster, but they may not be done making moves. The Goran Dragic rumors keep coming out as Dallas needs a secondary creator to play next to Luka. Expect the Mavericks to add to their roster before the trade deadline as they attempt to put themselves in the best position to win.
The Mavs released their four-game preseason schedule on Sept. 9. Let us take a closer look before determining which is the one game that fans cannot miss.
