Case for Moses Brown making the Dallas Mavericks regular season roster

Brown is an intriguing young big man with massive potential. He put up 21 points and 23 rebounds in a game against the Boston Celtics last season. The 7’2 center competes hard on both ends of the floor and provides rebounding and rim protection.

The 22-year-old is still a raw prospect. He has shown flashes of his immense talent, but the consistency is not there. Brown has worked hard during camp, including spending time with Mavericks legend Tyson Chandler. His potential and upside make keeping Moses Brown a no-brainer.

Brown is buried on the Mavs depth chart. Dwight Powell, Kristaps Porzingis, Willie Cauley-Stein, Maxi Kleber, and Boban Marjanovic are all ahead of him in the race for minutes. Dallas would have to keep the 22-year-old as a developmental player that will likely see most of his playing time with the Texas Legends this season.

Only $500,000 of Brown’s contract is guaranteed, so he would be the cheapest player to cut, but another team will take a chance on him. The 22-year-old big man has flashed too much potential for that not to happen. The Dallas Mavericks should keep Moses Brown and look to trade him before the deadline if they need production right now.
