After a 41-41 record this year and not making the playoffs for the first time in 12 years, I think it’s easy to say that the Mavs have some rebuilding to do. The Mavs have a lot of cap room this summer since the only people who are under contract are Dirk, Jae Crowder, Jared Cunningham, Vince Carter, and possibly Shawn Marion.
After looking at those players it doesn’t look like they have a chance to make the playoffs again. But luckily for the Mavs you have a great owner in Mark Cuban; which means the Mavs are going to do it BIG in free agency.
With names like Josh Smith, Monta Ellis and Dwight Howard all in free agency this year I wouldn’t be surprised if the Mavs land two huge superstars. So here are the things I think the mavs should do in free agency this summer.
Number 1: Keep OJ Mayo. Mayo was a huge part of the Mavericks winning when Dirk wasn’t there, even though he didn’t finish great at the end. I believe that he could be the next allstar guard for the Mavs.
Number 2. Sign a point guard!!! The Mavs didn’t know what to do this year with the point guard position. Mike James and Darren collision kept switching in and out the starting job nearly every night. I think it’s a must to sign a point guard this offseason.
Number 3: Get you a superstar for years to come. As we saw this year Dirk isn’t getting any younger and with him being injured for the most part of the season the mavs didn’t have that superstar every night to go to. With superstars like Brandon Jennings, Monta Ellis, Josh Smith, Dwight Howard and Chris Paul all out there, there should be no excuse to get at least one superstar this offseason.
