The Dallas Mavericks are fresh off a run to the Western Conference Finals, but they are still looking to upgrade their roster. President of basketball operations and general manager Nico Harrison made it clear that re-signing Jalen Brunson was the team’s top priority heading into the offseason, but the 6’1 guard decided to join the Knicks. His departure was a blow as it would be for any team losing their second-leading scorer.

Harrison and the front office have rebounded well in building their roster around superstar Luka Doncic. They traded for Christian Wood, drafted Jaden Hardy, and signed JaVale McGee with their taxpayer mid-level exception to give Dallas 14 players under contract.

Losing Brunson and adding two important big men has shaken up the depth chart in Dallas. The Mavericks will no longer have to rely on Dwight Powell as their starting center as the front office upgrade the team’s biggest weakness. Where does the depth chart stand with one open roster spot?

The Mavs have 14 players under contract, but they are not done making moves. Rumors suggest that Goran Dragic will take the team’s final roster spot, but even that is unlikely their last offseason move.

The Mavericks entered the offseason focused on improving their wing depth, but that was always going to be difficult to do on the free-agent market with just the taxpayer mid-level exception at their disposal. Do not be surprised to see Dallas pull off a trade for a wing before the offseason wraps up.
