You obviously still want to show the young Kids to compete and play good Teambasketball, so they dont fall into bad habbits but trading for veterans is a really bad idea. And giving up draftpicks is a absolute no-go!


I want no part of being like the Sixers. They have been rebuilding since Iverson left. The culture they have established by the constant tanking has ruined any chance they had to be a good team.
I agree 100%.

The 76ers should be an example why multiple year ranking is not the way to build a team. I was fine "tanking" for the last part of last season but I'm strongly against a decade or more of horrible basketball for the extremely slim chance of finding a superstar in the draft.

Mavs should build the team through:

-free agency

-taking the draft seriously and not trading away picks for mediocre talent. No wasted picks on 9ft tall Indians or trading down to save a few dollars.

-continue to use a few roster spots to tryout undrafted talent both American and International

-being opportunistic on trades

This is a well rounded approach to building a team without decades of bad basketball.

I agree. With all the young guys on this roster the last thing you want to teach them is how to be losers.

We need to be bad one more season, we dont have an A level star we dont even have a b leave all star, we need to try one more time and see what we can get next draft. I like barnes and noel but they arent franchise players and if this league is nothing else its about stars we dont have one. Hope fully dsj can be that but even if he's batman we still need a robin

The Lakers will likely prefer to just let Randle and KCP walk. They are going to need all their cap space to make a run at Lebron and Paul George. From what I've heard they are gearing up to potentially go after 3 max players.

See that this thread is fairly active with Mavs fans, and just wanted to ask if you'd mind giving your opinion to the "YOU are Cuban" thread posted earlier.

Mavs have signed 26 year old PG Maalik Wayns. Roster now up to 19 players if we're counting Noel:

PG: Smith | Ferrell | Barea | Wayns
SG: Matthews | Curry | Harris | Clavell
SF: Barnes | Finney-Smith | Dozier
PF: Nowitzki | Kleber | McRoberts | Motley
C: Noel | Mejri | Powell | Ashley

One more spot available to get up to 20 players for training camp.

Malik Wayns is a 26 year old JJ Barea in my opinion. Runs really fast from end to end. Loves to drive and dish, and plays good D.

With that I think JJ will be gone next year. If Clavell and Dozier do good, that should spell the end of Devin Harris in a Mavs uniform too.

At this point I think our best case scenario here would be to play like Denver.

Iverson / Melo / K-Mart = DSJ / Barnes / Noel

And that's really pushing it.

I could see a deal around Matthews for Waiters and filler. Matthews gives them a 2-way players for playoff. Meanwhile, Waiters gives us youth in the backcourt. He's semi-proven skill-wise despite some attitude concerns. That's a good reclamation project for future sake.

Mavs signed center Jeff Withey. Hammons replacement I assume?

Can't have a major problem with this signing if it's just a camp deal (though maybe it's guaranteed?), but why use a roster spot on another low-ceiling center? Don't Withey's strengths overlap with Mejri's? The podcast-wizened offseason analyst in me is screaming "but what about the wing depth?"

On the bright side, Withey is probably a better offensive rebounder than anyone we have on the team now, so that fills a major need. He's also a respectable free throw shooter. Mejri is a character and a fan favorite, but he's also not good enough to go without competition. Withey could be marginally better than Mejri on offense. Advanced stats have good things to say about Withey, though it's worth noting that almost his entire career has been garbage time.

I always hope for late offseason signings to be like Al-Farouq Aminu, JJ Barea, and DeJuan Blair. This one is far less inspiring. (And what about the wing depth??)

Underrated move. He worths every dollar on veteran minimum contract. He could be a long-term replacement to Mejri who'll probably let go after this contract given the direction of the team. Hopefully, he create an intense competition and make Noel look foolish in case the latter takes QO. He's 26 and averages 12 PPG, 10 RPG, 2.7 BPG per 36 minutes behind Rudy Gobert. As a backup to Gobert, I can understand why he only averages 8.5 min per game. On a rental deal, he's every intention to prove his worth. I think he's better than Alex Len. As a backup C, he's a perfect fit money-wise. So the Mavs roster is set unless someone squeeze Kleber or McRoberts from 15th spot.

If Dallas ends up picking 8-12 next year and Kevin Love becomes available would you trade Powell + DFS + #8-12 2018 1st rounder for KevinLove?

I'd definitely trade for Love. I've always thought he'd fit well here in Dallas.
He is a bit older than I'd like however if Smith Jr is the real deal I'm wanting to compete at the highest level immediately.

Best of all,this puts the poor rebounding Barnes back to SF where he belongs. We need a PF that can rebound.

The fans here that have championship tunnel vision will hate the idea, but the fans like me that will be happy with a fun and entertaining winning regular seasons with playoff appearances should like this trade.

Porzingis would be my ultimate target but that is a long shot with Phil Jackson gone.I think Cuban could have secretly paid Phil Jackson several million under the table to trade Porzingis to Dallas. Yeah, my illegal conspiracy theory, Lol

Hamidou Diallo seems like a good prospect to get at 8-12. I'd let Matthews walk after his contract expires if we draft him though.

Mixed feelings about that trade.
Barnes,Noel and Love would be a nice 3/4/5 chemistry but I don't think I'd make that trade unless we take a major step forward as a team this year.
Love is the type of player you go after when you are a piece away from seriously contending.
I see us about 3 or 4 years from being at that stage so I'd have to pass on that trade.

Yeah, Love doesn't make sense. He could start declining in 2 years relatively easily. I really think Dallas should be trading expirings in 2018 to pick up draft assets in 2018. Then have 4 prospects to go into the 2019 offseason and try to get a large fish in FA.
