The Dallas Mavericks are sitting at 10-5, and have had a great start to the season so far.
Many of their offseason moves have paid off, as Nico Harrison and company put last year behind them and built a new squad around Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving.
Even though Dallas has had a great start to the season and looks as if they could be contenders, there are still likely a handful of moves that they wish they didn't make. Their defense has been horrendous, even with their defensive upgrades via free agency.
4 Offseason moves the Dallas Mavericks might already regret
You never know how a player will perform when you sign them to the contract, and some players for Dallas have tremendously underperformed compared to their offseason expectations.
Here are four moves from free agency that the Dallas Mavericks might already regret.
4. Re-signing Markieff Morris
Even though Dallas brought back Markieff Morris on a veteran minimum contract, it was still a puzzling move that the Mavs could already regret.
Morris didn't contribute last season after Dallas traded for him at the deadline, and he hasn't contributed this season either. He is averaging 3.8 points, 1.3 rebounds, and 0.7 assists per game in 10 games played for Dallas over the last two seasons.
He isn't a consistent part of the rotation, and although every team needs a good veteran presence for the end of the bench, Dallas seemingly wasted a roster spot by bringing him. They could have signed a defensive specialist, but they decided to bring back Morris, who doesn't make an impact on the floor.
There aren't enough minutes to play Morris or a said Morris replacement heavy minutes, but considering that players like Kelly Oubre Jr. were still free agents at the time of the Morris signing, Dallas could have done better.
