The Dallas Mavericks did not make the massive splash fans were hoping for this offseason. They cleared significant cap space and made a run at adding a marquee option to pair with Luka Doncic, but Dallas could not land the big fish. The Mavs new front office quickly pivoted to filling holes on their roster and bringing back a couple of important pieces.
Dallas did not just make roster changes this offseason. They have a brand new general manager in Nico Harrison, who hired Andrew Baker to help with salary cap matters. The Mavs also have a fresh coaching staff led by Jason Kidd. Those movements were important, but it is too early to judge how they will work out.
The Mavs made seven significant roster moves this offseason that will have an impact on their 15-man regular-season squad. Dallas may not be done as they continue to be linked to Goran Dragic rumors, but how do the moves they have made thus far rank?

This list does not including changing their two-way contract players. Tyler Bey and Nate Hinton were waived this offseason with Eugene Omoruyi and Jaquori McLaughlin filling those roles. The players will split time between the Mavs and Texas Legends this season. Both have plenty of potential, but fans will have to wait to see how they play at the NBA level.
Signing Feron Hunt and Carlik Jones to Exhibit 10 deals were also not included in this list. Both players will be in training camp but are expected to spend the season with the Legends.
