Dallas Mavericks 2022 overall offseason grade
The Mavs are trying to build a title contender around superstar Luka Doncic. They have the most difficult piece to acquire in number 77, but they are still trying to figure out the best fits to play next to him. Did the Mavericks get closer to winning a title this offseason?
The front office improved the frontcourt, added a talented rookie, and brought back a key locker room presence. They made moves and improved their depth, but the Mavericks failed in their top priority and did nothing groundbreaking.
Dallas Mavericks overall offseason grade: C
Going into the season with 14 players does not make sense when the team needs another ball-handler and playmaker. They lost their second-leading scorer and a key piece of their units that had the most success last season, but Dallas did zero to replace his role. They are moving Spencer Dinwiddie into the starting five, but they have nobody to cover the Dinwiddie minutes off the bench.
The Dallas Mavericks made some wise moves this offseason that earned high marks, but losing Jalen Brunson and failing to replace him significantly impacted their overall mark. It was an average offseason in Dallas. They lost an important player, but arguably added two and a talented rookie with immense potential.
This grade will change as we see how the pieces fit around superstar Luka Doncic. The Mavs will get Tim Hardaway Jr. back from injury too. Expect them to win 50 regular season games and be back in the playoffs, but can they go on another deep postseason run? Stay tuned to find out.
