Mavericks To Start Dwight Powell At Center, Kristaps Porzingis At Power Forward 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Sep 29, 2021 6:44 pm

The Dallas Mavericks plan to start Dwight Powell at center with Kristaps Porzingis at power forward.


Porzingis has admitted in the past that he can be more effective at center than at power forward. 


The Mavericks replaced Rick Carlisle with Jason Kidd as head coach in the offseason.

Ah yes, 6'9 Dwight Powell will be the "Center" and 7"3 Kristaps Porzingis will be the "Forward".
Go Knicks!

You can't start these three guys (Luka, Powell and Porzingis) and expect to keep up to NBA pace, so unless this is some old school basketball tactic I'm really not sure I see this squad making it back on defense in time.

Always mark of a good coach that declares his starters on the first day of training camp.
