The Dallas Mavericks still have one open roster spot, and the playoff push iss quickly approaching.

The Mavs are 34-25, and with 23 games remaining, it may be wise for them to fill their open roster spot sooner rather than later so whoever they sign can get comfortable with their new squad in time to be prepared for the playoffs.

Dallas was linked to Spencer Dinwiddie a few weeks ago, but there have been no other rumors about the Mavs on the buyout market since he signed with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Perfect move for Mavericks to make is obvious after Spurs buyout veteran forward

The Mavs' biggest need seems to be a backup point guard, especially with Dante Exum's injury history, but they could also look to bolster their frontcourt and add a forward with some size.

Before the trade deadline, the Mavs had little to no positional size and needed to add some size on the wing as well as the center spot. Dallas did that by trading for Daniel Gafford and P.J. Washington, and now they can add more size from the buyout market.

Veteran forward Marcus Morris and the San Antonio Spurs reached a contract buyout according to Shams Charania of The Athletic, and he is someone the Mavs could look to add for some veteran leadership, toughness, and shooting off the bench.

This season, Morris is averaging 6.7 points and 2.9 rebounds per game while shooting 43.9 percent from the field and 40 percent from downtown. This has been one of Morris' best shooting seasons of his career, and the Mavs could sign him if they want more shooting off the bench in the frontcourt.

Dallas already has Marcus' brother Markieff on their roster, and he would be thrilled if Dallas signed his brother. The Morris twins played together for the Phoenix Suns, and this would be the second time in their careers that they got to play together.

Markieff hardly ever gets to play for Dallas, but it would be a different story if they signed Marcus. Marcus is a flamethrower from downtown and has solid playoff experience. He and Luka Doncic went at it in back-to-back years in the playoffs, and adding someone who backs down from no one could be a smart pickup for the Mavs.

For all the latest on the Dallas Mavericks this season, stay tuned.
