2. Dexter Dennis
This wouldn't be a complete wildcard list without at least one potential two-way player. Although it hasn't been made official yet, there have been rumors that Dallas plans to sign Dennis to a two-way deal.
Dexter Dennis has shocked many Mavs fans with his recent play on the court. The 24-year-old has dazzled in his four preseason matchups and this includes a ferocious dunk that put his name on the map.
Dennis played five collegiate seasons at the University of Wichita and the University of Texas A&M. With this in mind, he entered the NBA as an automatic underdog being that he was already 24 years old.
However, with his recent play in three preseason games, Dennis has gained the trust of the Mavericks' coaching staff. His skill set seems to be very compatible with the team's needs, a defensive-minded wing who can create some off the dribble.
Dennis has continued to flash his potential on the defensive side of the floor as he has become virtually impossible to get around in one-on-one scenarios.
However, one thing that plagued Dennis's collegiate career was his inability to shoot the 3-ball. If Dennis expects to crack the rotation it will be apparent he develops an outside shot. Dennis will get plenty of open looks, but cashing in these looks will be crucial.
Dennis has all the intangibles to become a savvy rotational player if the Mavericks look to throw the ball in his direction. It will be important he develops a consistent offensive game, but he is a prime candidate to become a huge boom for the Mavs.
