Case for the Dallas Mavericks acquiring Dennis Schroder
Even with Jalen Brunson proving he is a starting point guard, the Mavs need more ball-handlers and creators. Brunson and superstar Luka Doncic are the only two players that can consistently create shots for themselves and others.
Schroder would add a new dimension to the Mavericks' offense as he has the speed and quickness to beat his defender off the dribble. Dallas does not have a player like that on their current roster.
Schroder is more of a score-first guard than a traditional point. The Mavericks could find ways to get him attacking downhill and putting pressure on the defense.
Head coach Jason Kidd could keep two playmakers on the floor at all times and diversify the offense a bit. Schroder would take the burden off Luka to create everything, which in turn would keep the Mavericks superstar energized late in games.
Coach Kidd had replacement players Brandon Knight and Isaiah Thomas producing numbers. Jalen Brunson has reached a new level under his tutelage, which should come as no surprise as J-Kidd was one of the best players in NBA history. The new Mavs coach is getting the most out of his point guards, and Dennis Schroder would be no different.
