1. Gabe Vincent
Vincent has made himself a lot of money during the Heat’s run to the NBA Finals. He set a new career-high with 25.9 minutes per game during the regular season before becoming Miami’s starter in the playoffs and averaging over 31 a night. Vincent has put up 13.1 points, 3.9 assists, and 0.8 steals over 17 postseason games. The 6’3 guard missed Game 5 against the Celtics with an ankle injury.
Vincent has played well on both ends of the floor in the postseason, and the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent figures to be a hot commodity this summer. He made just $1.99 million this season, so the 26-year-old will be looking for a payday. Expect him to be in the mid-level exception conversation, and Vincent can choose his next team.
Would the 6’3 guard have interest in coming to Dallas to back up Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving? He could play more of a sixth-man role with opportunities to run the offense. Is that enough to entice him to leave South Beach? The Mavs could also pull off a sign-and-trade if they want Vincent to get a more lucrative contract.
The Dallas Mavericks want to contend for a championship next season, so adding players with experience on that stage would be wise. Can they convince someone to come to Dallas to play alongside Luka Doncic? Stay tuned to find out.
