The Dallas Mavericks signed Sterling Brown to a two-year $6 million deal in the offseason. Brown played his college basketball at SMU, so it is a bit of a homecoming for the 26-year-old guard. The Mavs targeted him early in the process as they loved his 3-point shooting, perimeter defense, and fit next to Luka Doncic.

Brown has come off the bench in the first two preseason games. He gives the Mavericks needed wing depth after they struggle to defend the Clippers' small-ball lineups in the postseason. At 6’5, Brown has versatility and the ability to switch that could pay dividends for Dallas in the playoffs.

Sterling Brown did an interview (subscription required) with The Athletic’s Tim Cato where he talked his game, playing for new head coach Jason Kidd, and so much more. Brown also let fans know that he is looking for chess partners in Dallas.

All Dallas Mavericks supporters should read Sterling Brown’s interview with Tim Cato. He talked a lot about playing for Jason Kidd in Milwaukee, the team’s defense, and playing with Luka Doncic.

Brown must prove that his 3-point shooting from last season was no fluke and that he can defend well on the perimeter. Sterling Brown is one of the many players to watch during the 2021-2022 season as the Dallas Mavericks attempt to jump into title contention. Perhaps fans will get to see his chess game too.
