Ranking newly acquired Dallas Mavericks: 1. Reggie Bullock

Without a doubt, Bullock is the biggest asset that the Mavericks acquired in the offseason. He showed in his last two years with the New York Knicks that he can be a threat in all 48 minutes of the game. Scoring double-digit points per game in four of his eight seasons in the NBA, he has the potential to be a starter in Dallas.

He comes in with one purpose, just like Brown, to provide perimeter support. After hitting 41 percent from 3-point range last year, Bullock is already statistically the best shooter on the team. 

Out of all the players that Dallas signed, he and Brown are the only ones with playoff experience, which is always a plus with any squad. His second-biggest contribution is his reliable free throw shooter, averaging 90 percent last year from the line, which is an area that severely hurt the Mavericks in the playoffs.

Reggie Bullock’s NBA career is the most well-rounded out of all the signees, and he can make an immediate impact from game one. His time in New York proved that he can be one of the focal points on a playoff-caliber team. It would not be a surprise if he ends up as one of the top four scorers for the Mavs by the end of the 2021-2022 season.
