If the Dallas Mavericks could pair Luka Doncic with one Hall-of-Famer, one All-Star, and two role players, what would the dream lineup look like?

SF: Bruce Bowen

This is the ultimate role player pick for any person looking to fill out their lineups. Bruce Bowen is one of the best 3-and-D players in NBA history, and he played in an era before that term was as common as it is now.

If the goal is to get shooting and defense next to Luka Doncic, which is should be, then Bowen is an amazing choice to play the small forward position in this lineup. He never averaged double-digit points, but Bowen made eight All-Defensive teams.

Bowen spent 13 years in the NBA, most of them with the San Antonio Spurs, where he played from 2001 to 2009, winning three championships along the way.

On those Spurs teams, Bowen played a ton of minutes, especially in the playoffs. In 2003, 2005, and 2007 - the three years Bowen won a championship with San Antonio - he played 31.3 minutes, 35.4 minutes, and 34.5 minutes in each respective playoff run.

The fact that Gregg Popovich trusted him that much should speak volumes.

Plus, Bowen finished his career as a 42.2% three-point shooter on 2.9 attempts per game, and if he played next to Doncic, he would undoubtedly get more wide-open looks from deep, especially in this era of basketball.
