Stop me when this sounds familiar. Their most popular star opted out of his contract only to re-sign. They added a center and consider themselves a very deep team that needs a few younger players to help infuse some youth to their veteran core.
According to Shaun Powell at NBA.com, a huge advantage for the Mavericks is their bench. Art Garcia at NBA.com believes that is the case as well. If you remember, we also gave you a look at how the Mavericks view their depth. Whether it all fits together with "role acceptance" and they are able to maximize their depth will be answered at a later date, but a youth infusion (Roddy Beaubois, Dominique Jones and Ian Mahinmi) can help this aging roster. The Mavericks have historically been known as a team that is good at minimizing turnovers and excelling at the free throw line, they are hoping those trends can continue in 2010-11.
