Free agency started almost two weeks ago, and the Dallas Mavericks haven't been extremely active on the open market.
They re-signed Kyrie Irving and Dwight Powell, signed Seth Curry and Dante Exum, and acquired Grant Williams through a sign-and-trade. These moves are strong, and all help the Mavs in different ways, but they still have work to do in order to build an NBA Finals-contending team.
They have their core in Luka Doncic and Irving, but they need some more depth on the wing and a starting center. Center has been a glaring hole on the Mavericks' roster, and they must find a way to address that need this offseason.
5 players the Dallas Mavericks should sign after two weeks of free agency
They re-signed Dwight Powell to a three-year deal, and he gives them depth at center, but he shouldn't be their starter. They also acquired Richaun Holmes in a draft night trade with the Kings, but he shouldn't be a starter either.
If the Mavericks want a new starting center, they'd likely have to trade for one. They could ship Tim Hardaway Jr. and JaVale McGee along with a second-round pick somewhere to try to upgrade at big.
One position that Dallas can upgrade through free agency though is wing. They tried signing Matisse Thybulle to an offer sheet, but the Trailblazers matched the deal. Dallas may not be able to get a player as good as Thhybullee, but they have to try. They still have the mid-level exception to use and have to add someone that will give them consistent minutes and addresses one of their needs.
Here are five players that the Mavericks should sign.
