Taylor Hendricks' fit on the Dallas Mavericks

Taylor Hendricks would fit fantastically in the Mavericks' system immediately and his strengths of defense and offensive versatility would be utilized to their fullest potential. He would be excellent in the pick-and-roll with Luka Doncic as he is a high-flyer that can finish at the rim or pop outside and shoot a catch-and-shoot three.

His ability to be a two-way player is something that Dallas desperately needs at the power forward position. Dallas hasn't had a defensive stopper at the four or five in multiple seasons, and Hendricks would happily accept that role.

He's the type of player that could come in and play significant minutes right away for this team. Hendricks would bring effort into crashing the glass and playing solid defense on the league's best wings and forwards.

Hendricks would come in and arguably be the best rim protector on the team immediately. He's that good. If Hendricks is available at the tenth pick, the Dallas Mavericks should definitely consider bringing him in. He would be a glue guy on this team and fill the holes that they must address this summer.
