5. Boban Marjanovic

Boban is the only player on here from Kidd’s time with the Mavericks. Dallas has seven soon-to-be free agents on their roster, including Kyrie Irving, but there is plenty of time to discuss who they should bring back before June 30. The Mavs sorely missed Marjanovic this season, despite his limited on-court production.

Boban may be the best teammate in the NBA, and Dallas needs that on their roster. He has a close relationship with superstar Luka Doncic, and the 24-year-old talked about losing his joy on the court this season. What better way to find it again than bringing back Marjanovic?

Boban is a fan and teammate favorite as he always brings the laughs. Everybody loves the 7’3 big man, and head coach Jason Kidd even found a few unique ways to use Marjanovic during their season together.

Bobi was traded to Houston in the Christian Wood deal last offseason, and he is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. Expect both sides to have mutual interest in a reunion, but can they find a deal that makes sense? Marjanovic will be in the NBA next season if he wants to be but is unclear where until the pieces start to fall into place.
