The Dallas Mavericks will look to use the summer of 2019 to re-sign some of their own free agents, and either chase a third star to pair with Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis or surround those two with quality role players.
The 2019 off-season will feature perhaps the most competitive free agent market in league history, as almost half the players in the NBA will be free agents. This means there are more teams with an abundance of cap space than ever before. Combine that with a weak 2020 free agency class, and teams will be desperate to get the most out of their cap space this summer.

Despite currently being the 6th worst team in the NBA, as a Mavericks fan I am feeling pretty lucky these days. We have two elite players on our roster that are under the age of 23 in Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis, and a ton of upcoming cap space to build around them. From where we were a few years ago to where we are now has me feeling great about the future of the franchise for the next 5+ years.

Maxi Kleber and Dorian Finney-Smith have become fan favorites over the past few years, but what will it cost the Mavericks this summer to keep these Restricted Free Agents?
When it comes to free agency it is impossible to predict what type of money a player will receive in the open market. The best we can do is look at things like a player’s age, production, injury history, and future potential to determine what a team will be willing to pay for their services.
It is hard to put a measurement on injury risk and potential, so the main thing we have to go on when trying to determine a players value is based on their age and production.

Top 10 potential free agent Point Guards for the Dallas Mavericks in 2019.
The 2019 Free Agent Point Guard class is loaded with talent. Point Guard is not necessarily a position of need for the Dallas Mavericks with Luka Dončić and Jalen Brunson on the roster, but that doesn’t really matter if you have the chance to land some of the studs that will be available this summer. What the Mavericks are in short supply of is defensive guards. Guys that can put pressure on opposing ball handlers and disrupt the offensive flow for opponents. Luckily for the Mavericks, you will also find a few defensive stoppers on this list as well.

Top 10 potential free agent Shooting Guards for the Dallas Mavericks in 2019.
The Shooting Guard free agent pool for 2019 is probably the weakest of all the position groups. There is one superstar in the group, a couple pretty good players, and a few younger guys with yet unfulfilled potential.
This is fine for the Dallas Mavericks because Shooting Guard is not necessarily an area of need for them as they have 26 year old Tim Hardaway Jr. under contract for next season and then a $20 million Player Option for the 2020-2021 season. Given that they are already paying out about $20 million to the Shooting Guard position and that they have needs in other areas, it is hard to imagine that the Mavericks will be in play for many of these guys outside of Klay Thompson, because who cares what position you play when you can shoot like he can.
