The Dallas Mavericks wrapped up a dominant preseason with a win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday evening without their three top scorers. They won all four contests as Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis look locked in and ready for monster seasons.
Immediately after their preseason finale, the Mavs set their 15-man regular-season roster by waiving Tyrell Terry, Carlik Jones, and Feron Hunt. Eugene Omoruyi and JaQuori McLaughlin remain on two-way contracts and will shuffle between the Mavericks and Texas Legends this season.
Cutting Terry cost owner Mark Cuban and the team $3.3 million over the next two years, but the Mavs proved they are looking to win now by keeping Frank Ntilikina over the developing prospect. Here is a closer look at their depth chart heading into the 2021-2022 regular season.

The Mavs added four players this offseason to improve their depth and versatility. New head coach Jason Kidd has plenty of options when selecting his five on the floor, and that improved depth could be massive in the playoffs.
Kidd already announced the starters, and fans got a feel for the second unit during the preseason. There were also noticeable changes from long-time head coach Rick Carlisle’s system that will be interesting to follow. Kidd wants his team moving the ball more and has the players in less rigid roles.
Here is how things break down for the Dallas Mavericks at each position at the start of the regular season.
