Dallas Mavericks small forward depth chart after Kemba Walker signing

The Mavs wings are interchangeable, so fans can look at it several different ways. This is the underachieving group that must play better if Dallas wants to get back to the playoffs and make another run.

Starter: Reggie Bullock

Head coach Jason Kidd wants his best defenders on the floor to start and close games, which has kept Bullock in the opening group, despite his struggles. The 6’6 wing is shooting just 30.0 percent from the field and 28.0 percent on his threes through 18 games. Bullock is getting plenty of open looks and fans should expect a turnaround.

Backup: Tim Hardaway Jr.

Hardaway Jr. has struggled since returning from a foot surgery that ended his season in January. He is shooting just 31.1 percent from the field and 29.4 percent on his threes. The looks are open for both THJ and Bullock, but they are not falling. Missing open shots coupled with a flawed roster has been behind the Mavericks' 9-10 start to the season.

Third-string: Theo Pinson

Pinson has played just 16 minutes this season, but fans and players can still hear him from the bench. He got under Kevin Durant’s skin when they faced the Nets earlier this season, but the new bench rules have prevented Pinson from making the same impact he did last year.
