Ranking Dallas Mavericks offseason moves: 3. Add Bullock
Signing Reggie Bullock to a three-year deal worth $30 million was the Mavs biggest addition of the offseason. The 6’6 wing projects to join Dallas’ starting five and be a key cog on both ends of the floor.
Last season, Bullock averaged 10.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 0.8 steals in 30.0 minutes per game as a starter for the Knicks. His minutes increased in the playoffs, and he drew the matchup on Trae Young for stretches as New York was bounced in the first round by the Atlanta Hawks.
Bullock is an elite shooter that will be a massive upgrade for the Mavericks. He shot 41.0 percent from 3-point range last season and is a career 39.2 percent marksman from long range. The Mavs are going to space the floor and let Luka Doncic cook with Bullock being a key piece of their floor spacing.
The 30-year-old wing could be the Dallas Mavericks’ best perimeter defender next season. He and Dorian Finney-Smith figure to take on the toughest matchups as the Mavs look to improve on this end of the floor.
It was an important that the Mavericks added Reggie Bullock. He improves their depth, floor spacing, perimeter defense, and versatility. Bullock should be a massive upgrade over Josh Richardson as Dallas looks to take the next step.
