9. Signing Mike Miles Jr. to a two-way contract
The Dallas Mavericks had a spectacular 2023 NBA Draft.
They started off the night by trading back into the first round to select Dereck Lively II and dump Davis Bertans' contract. Later that night, they used the traded player exception to acquire the No. 24 pick and Richaun Holmes.
They selected Olivier-Maxence Prosper with that pick, but their night didn't end there.
Within an hour or two after the draft, the Mavs made another move. They signed Mike Miles Jr. from TCU to a two-way contract. Miles Jr. averaged 15.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game in three seasons at TCU.
He played at a high level during his entire tenure at TCU and was one of the best unsigned players in this year's draft class. Although a bit undersized, Miles Jr. has the chance to be a solid NBA player.
Miles Jr. is a good scorer, has a smooth handle, and can knock down shots when he needs to. He is also an underrated finisher around the bucket and blows by defenders with ease.
Miles Jr. will likely spend most of next season in the G League due to Dallas being so guard heavy, but Dallas definitely found a gem in Miles Jr.
