Ranking the Dallas Mavericks' top 9 trade assets heading into the offseason
By Tyler Watts
8. Reggie Bullock
Bullock’s trade value is a bit difficult to gauge after a down year. He played over 30 minutes per game for just the second time in his career, but the 32-year-old averaged just 7.2 points each night, which was his lowest since 2017. He shot 38.0 percent from 3-point range, which is slightly below his career rate, but Bullock led the league in corner threes made.
The 6’6 wing played a crucial role in the team’s run to conference finals in 2022. He led the league in playoff minutes per game at 39.3 as head coach Jason Kidd struggled to take Bullock or Dorian Finney-Smith off the floor. The Mavs needed their floor spacing and perimeter defense to make their run, and Bullock responded by shooting 39.7 percent from 3-point range in the playoffs.
Bullock is 32 years old and his defense slipped a bit this season. Was it just the team’s overall defensive woes or the start of Bullock’s decline? It is too soon to tell.
Reggie Bullock only has $5.4 of his $10.5 million salary guaranteed until June 28. The Dallas Mavericks are going to guarantee his deal because it is a cheap price for a 3-and-D wing. His expiring contract is an attractive trade chip, and contenders would call because of his production.
