5 Former Mavericks the team should consider bringing back this offseason
By Noah Weber
The Dallas Mavericks have to make massive moves this offseason to return to the playoffs after one of the most disappointing seasons in recent memory. Dallas traded for Kyrie Irving in February and rather than improving in the standings, they plummeted to the 10th-worst record in the NBA.
They need to make the necessary changes to get better. These changes include letting players walk and bringing in new ones in free agency. The Mavs can't run it back with the same squad and expect to make a deep playoff push as they did in 2022.
Something needs to change.

One thing that must change is their wing depth. It's paper-thin and arguably the weakest position on the roster. They have to add wings that can defend and space the floor.
Another thing that needs to change is their starting center. Dwight Powell can't be him to start next season, and they have to bring someone in that can protect the rim and rebound at a high level. Powell did neither of those things, and Dallas suffered for it.
General manager Nico Harrison and the front office will look to revamp the roster, and there's a good chance that most of Dallas' seven pending free agents find new homes this summer.
Here's a look at five former Dallas Mavericks that the franchise could look into bringing back. Each player fills a hole in their current roster and could make a massive impact.
