The Dallas Mavericks return for the start of the 2021-2022 season on Sept. 27 with media day. Superstar Luka Doncic and the entire roster is already back in Dallas and ready. It will be the first season under new head coach Jason Kidd as the Mavs look to jump into title contention.

They were hoping to add a marquee free agent this offseason but were forced to fill holes after striking out. The new front office led by general manager and president of basketball operations Nico Harrison traded for Moses Brown and signed Reggie Bullock, Sterling Brown, and Frank Ntilikina. Dallas’ roster improve on the margins but did not make massive changes.

Any team with Luka has a chance to win a lot of games, but the Mavericks will need internal growth to take the next step. With training camp on the doorstep, how did their depth chart change this offseason?

The Mavs added depth and versatility to their roster, so it makes the most sense to break things down in a non-traditional way. The positions will be lead guards, wings, and big men with a ranking of each because head coach Jason Kidd has the flexibility to play the matchups with his starting and closing lineups. Creating a pecking order makes the most sense as the roles and minutes could fluctuate based on the opposition.

Here is a breakdown of the current Dallas Mavericks depth chart heading into training camp and some things to watch for each player. Remember, things are fluid entering camp, and performances over the three weeks before the regular season begins could force changes. Dallas currently has 16 players on guaranteed contracts, so one will have to go before opening night.
