Besides Boban, there's clearly no good rebound upfront. Moses could help in the right role. Brown, potentially, is better shot-blocking wise compared to KP. I don't think the Mavs should part with Moses for a 35 yo Dragic. I believe Moses is way ahead to 15th status on roster.

The two-way contract status is also questionable moves. Letting go of Hinton and Bey is kinda bad moves. I have a lot of concerns with the new management. Sounds incompetent to me after all those offseason moves. Adding Dragic doesn't solve any key issues forward besides pleasing Luka. Still, defense wins championship. The big lineup is the real issue. This present unfavorable matchup to the Mavs more than the opponents last season.


I'd consider trading Moses Brown to the Wizards for an exception, and then using the $10.9 TPE on a guy like Montrezl Harrell.

OMG Harrell again. Please stop. He can't play in the PO, he is trash.

There's nothing on Twitter about this. Nothing on ESPN. Apparently, 41Dirk41 just knows more than the rest of us.
41Dirk41 has an opinion = the word of God :roll:

If Brown does get his game to Boban level on offense and rebounding then I will be happy because his blocking ability is fairly well proven to be top tier aready and that kind of defense will help KP out and get us another big to pair with him so that we can use size advantages to cause other teams trouble with our twin tower attack.

Luka THJ and DFS and others need to work on perimeter defense to take that to the next level.

I wonder how tall is the tallest pair of bigs currently in the league. Boban and KP may have been number 1 but is Brown at 7'2" and KP at 7'3" still the tallest? We are ranked as having the tallest team in the NBA this season

https://www.sportskeeda.com/basketball/5-tallest-teams-nba-right-now/2

https://sportytell.com/nba/tallest-nba-players-all-time/

Boban, KP and Brown are all listed in the top 30 all time tallest players in NBA history


What do you mean "almost beat L.A with him."? When they put Boban in, it was the beginning of the end. They were 2-2 without him and 1-2 with him... How is that better? He was also less fed in the game they won.

The offense and defense was bad with him. To be fair, the defense was also atrocious without him. It's just that if you are giving up perimeter defense for twin towers, it better be guys who can defend the rim.

Also, how many times did Luka telegraph the entry pass and a defender came in to steal it from Boban?

I say boban. He is just so extremely situational that in my opinion he should ve the easiest to do without

Boban shouldn't even be in the league the fact we're paying him 7m over 2 years is absurd

Now that we have Moses he’s a luxury not a need but still in the playoffs he led the team in rebounding and was fourth in scoring so he serves an area of need and he’s a situational matchup we could use

Luka must love him is the only logic I can think of.

Here's my stab at a "strength" chart.
Ex: I'm expecting rows 6 & 7 to be less impactful than row 5 in the playoffs.

There is some hope built into it too.
Ex: I'm hoping Porzingis will perform like the 2nd best player on the team instead of how he did last year. :P

1. Luka
2. Porzingis
3. DFS, THJ
4. Kleber, Bullock
5. Powell, WCS, Sterling
6. Brunson, Green
7. Burke, Boban, Moses, Terry

Boban and Brown are both ahead of WCS and Powell on the depth chart and have earned the right by out performing them. Fact Boban was fourth in scoring and led the team in Rpg during the playoffs and Browns production in OKC probably justifies him starting. Dragic May mean Powell is gone to TOR

Brunson is also a 4 on your rating system

Eugene and Jaquori seem to be better defenders than Hinton and Bey. I’d consider trading or cutting Tyler as well.
