The Mavs overachieved this year as most critics picked Utah, Minnesota & Phoenix ahead of them to make the playoffs and thanks to Houston's demise & Memphis` bad luck due to injuries they were able to get the 6th seed, even with an inferior record from last year. But this lineup needs a lot of overhauling. OKC's athleticism was just too much. Where do we start?
Dirk - He's still the best player despite his age so whether Dallas rebuild or not, signing him to another year should be a priority.
Parsons & Matthews - Their 2 most expensive players failed to deliver. Both were inconsistent, even when healthy. Their stocks certainly declined so I doubt if there's any team willing to absorb their contracts. If only we can sign a superstar in place of these 2.
Deron Williams - there were flashes of brilliance but too injury prone. Maybe we need a younger PG.
Barea, Felton, Harris - Barea & Felton certainly carried the Mavs in some of the games so I don't mind them coming back but only as back ups. I love Harris but sadly his days as a Mav is numbered.
Zaza - Sadly didn't lived up to his early promise, maybe coz of RC's weird rotations. Mejri could replace him unless we get a better centre (Whiteside?)
David Lee - also injury prone but he's not expensive & still serviceable. Maybe useful in trade scenarios.
Anderson, Powell, Mejri - we need to keep these 3 as they are our only athletic guys.
McGee - didn't do anything of significance.
