2. Extending Josh Green

The Dallas Mavericks almost ran out of time to extend Josh Green this offseason. The 2020 NBA Draft class was eligible for their contract extensions this summer, and Dallas waited until the final day to give Green his three-year, $41 million extension.

Although this deal was for a fair price, and Green still has the potential to become an everyday starter for the Mavs one day, Dallas could regret giving him this extension.

This potential regret seems the least likely move that Dallas regrets due to the fact that his contract is still very movable, but Green has underperformed his expectations, to say the least.

Rather than improving, he has regressed. Green is averaging 6.9 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game while shooting 42.2 percent from the field. Green still brings great energy and effort off the bench, but he must continue to work on his weaknesses if he wants to reach his full potential.

You never know what Josh Green you're going to get on a given night due to his inconsistency. Some days he looks extremely confident and like he needs more minutes, and other days he looks like the same Josh Green from his first few seasons.

His game relies so much on his confidence, and he must stay confident if he wants to remain a big part of this team's rotation.
