Does head coach Jason Kidd think the Dallas Mavericks have enough ball-handling?
Kidd is a Hall of Fame point guard that loves to develop players. He talked about helping them add something to their games several times last season, and that will be no different this year, but does J-Kidd think his team has enough ball-handling and playmaking right now?
The Mavericks had their most success with two ball-handlers on the floor last season, but now Jalen Brunson is in the Big Apple, and Dallas did not sign a replacement. I think they need another ball-handler, but coach Kidd has a plan to make it work. Fans should be interested to hear what the Hall of Famer has to say about their playmaking situation, and how he plans to fill the roles.
The Mavs will likely be asking Frank Ntilikina, Josh Green, and Jaden Hardy to set up and handle some playmaking duties off the bench, especially if Luka Doncic or Spencer Dinwiddie is forced to miss time. Will they raise their game and thrive in an expanding role? Fans won’t know on media day, but they may find out what coach Kidd thinks.
Beyond the team’s ball-handling and playmaking situations, they need to set their rotations, but coach Kidd may have already landed on what he wants to do. Will he tell fans the starting lineup on media day?
