The Dallas Mavericks signed Theo Pinson in Dec. 2021 as the team was dealing with a COVID outbreak. They needed healthy bodies, and Pinson was lighting it up in the G League. Nobody expected him to turn that 10-deal into a multi-year partnership, but Pinson defied the odds.
Pinson was on a two-way contract last season, which made him ineligible for the playoffs, but that did not stop him from making an impact. The bench was fined three times during the postseason, and Pinson was leading that charge. The 6’5 wing became a cheerleader, distractor, and coach as the Mavericks reached the conference finals.
Pinson earned a deal on the Mavs' 15-man regular season roster this season because of his impact in the locker room. He improved the team’s chemistry and gave them a boost from the bench. The Mavericks took full advantage by using Pinson to help them unveil the 2022-2023 regular season schedule, which released on Aug. 17.
