Should the Dallas Mavericks keep Eugene Omoruyi?
The Mavs are facing an all-hands-on-deck situation in the short term as seven players are currently in the health and safety protocols. They are signing replacement players and using them for 25 minutes per game. Every roster spot is crucial, and Dallas needs healthy bodies that can produce.
Omoruyi’s inconsistent jumper, negative assist-to-turnover ratio, and multiple injuries over his young career make it easy to waive him and sign someone else to a two-way contract.
With so many players getting a chance to perform in the NBA as the entire league deals with COVID issues, there will be talent emerging. Having an open roster spot to snag a young talent looking for a more consistent role is a significant advantage.
Omoruyi could still turn into an NBA rotation player. He has the talent, but the 24-year-old just did not show enough to prove that he deserves to make the roster next season. Dallas can let him go and fill his two-way spot with another skilled youngster looking for an opportunity.
Will the Dallas Mavericks cut Eugene Omoruyi after his season-ending injury and move on? It is an option. Stay tuned to see what the team decides to do.
