What does Reggie Bullock bring to Dallas Mavericks? 2. Off ball movement

Another area the Mavericks could look vastly different this season is movement without the ball. Under Rick Carlisle, their shooters were often standing still as Luka Doncic created out of the pick and roll. The 22-year-old superstar thrived with more movement off the ball in the Olympics as Slovenia came one possession away from medaling.

Bullock is lights out when he has space. He shot 46.9 percent on wide-open 3-pointers as classified by NBA Stats last season. The 30-year-old wing was no stranger to knocking down shots off screens. Here Derrick Rose and Julius Randle run a pick and roll at the top as Taj Gibson screens to free Bullock in the corner for a wide-open triple.

Bullock comes out of the corner for a handoff triple against the Brooklyn Nets on April 5 below.

The addition of Reggie Bullock is going to help the Dallas Mavericks create more movement off the ball. Expect to see more actions where players are running off screens and cutting to get open. Luka is one of the best passers in the league and new head coach Jason Kidd will be looking to take full advantage of his superstar’s strengths.
