The Dallas Mavericks failed to land a star free agent this offseason, but they quickly shifted to Plan B and signed two 3-and-D wings in Reggie Bullock and Sterling Brown. New general manager and president of basketball operations Nico Harrison wants to put shooting and defense around Luka Doncic. He filled holes on their roster, but it was a bit of a disappointing offseason.

The Mavericks are still looking to make moves. They signed Frank Ntilikina on a guaranteed deal just last week, and fans continue to hear the Goran Dragic rumors. Dallas has their sights set on winning their first playoff series since 2011, and they look ready to improve their roster in whatever way possible.

Pacers wing Jeremy Lamb is rumored to be available, according to J. Michael. The latest has Dallas interested in the veteran wing.

Rumors: Dallas Mavericks exploring Jeremy Lamb trade

Evan Massey linked the Mavs to a possible Lamb trade with Indy, and fans can see his Tweet below.

Lamb is in the final year of his contract making $10.5 million. The 29-year-old averaged 10.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 0.9 steals in 21.3 minutes per game last season. He played in just 36 and 46 games in the last two years because of knee injuries, but the 6’5 wing did shoot over 40 percent from 3-point range last season.

The Mavericks ran out of wing options against the LA Clippers in the playoffs, and they have addressed that issue this offseason by signing Reggie Bullock and Sterling Brown. Jeremy Lamb would give them another option on the wing in the postseason. If the 29-year-old is healthy, he could play a key role for the Mavs this season, so it will be interesting to see if Dallas can get a trade done.
