The long days of August are here, and that typically means the NBA offseason slows down.

This is typically the slowest part of the offseason, but NBA fans have been blessed this year as the FIBA World Cup is going on.

The Dallas Mavericks are heavily represented in the FIBA World Cup as Luka Doncic, Josh Green, Dante Exum, and Dwight Powell are all representing their countries.
