The Dallas Mavericks entered the offseason with grand plans of adding an All-Star caliber player to pair with Luka Doncic. They were quickly forced to pivot to acquiring Reggie Bullock and Sterling Brown. The Mavs brought back Tim Hardaway Jr. and Boban Marjanovic, but they failed to improve their roster enough to jump into serious title contention.
They are better, though. They filled some holes on their roster. The Mavericks want to put shooting and floor spacers around Doncic. Their roster needed some perimeter defensive upgrades. Dallas added, but not as much as fans were hoping for this offseason. They may not be done as rumors continue to circulate, but as of now the Dallas Mavericks key addition was Reggie Bullock.
He is an eight-year NBA veteran that is coming off one of the best seasons in his career with the Knicks. The 30-year-old has played for five different teams and continues to improve his game. What can Mavs fans expect from Bullock throughout his new three-year $30 million contract with Dallas?

Bullock offers little in those areas, and the Mavericks need a secondary option behind Luka Doncic.
The 6’6 wing does offer plenty to benefit his new team. Here are the five primary things to expect from Reggie Bullock.
