Should the Dallas Mavericks sign Markieff Morris to fill their final roster spot?
First, the Mavericks front office would have to run this move by Luka Doncic. Does he want to play with Markieff Morris? The 23-year-old superstar has not shown significant interest in being part of the team’s decision-making, but he may veto this signing.
If Doncic is onboard, using the team’s 15th and final roster spot on Morris makes some sense. He is not the best remaining free agent, but he is a willing role player with championship experience. The Mavericks would be better off signing a ball-handler and playmaker, but the market there is thin. Morris could be the best fit, even if he is not the best player.
Markieff Morris is one of a handful of players I would be considering for the team’s final roster spot if I was leading the front office. The team could benefit from his toughness, grit, and postseason experience. Finding a trade that improves their roster should be the top priority for Dallas, but circling back and rounding out with Markieff Morris would be a positive move.
Dallas Mavericks fans should stay tuned because the offseason activity is far from over. The Kevin Durant and Donovan Mitchell trades could break at any time. All it will take is some team stepping up to meet their massive asking prices. Those moves will open the door for the Mavs to round out their roster. How will they do it? Stay tuned to find out.
