The Dallas Mavericks will wrap up the preseason tonight with a game against the Detroit Pistons at the American Airlines Center.

Dallas has made plenty of moves heading into this game, as they signed center Tony Bradley yesterday and waived Mike Miles Jr., Joe Wieskamp, Jordan Walker, and Taze Moore earlier in the week.

The Mavericks are still deciding on the final aspects of their roster, and they still have two two-way spots available.

Dallas is set to have a bounce-back season, with a big part of that depending on how Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving fit. They struggled during their time together last season, but a full summer and a new-look roster around them should help the star duo.
