Dallas Mavericks: 3 Takeaways from the 2018 NBA Offseason

Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks have been trying to find a way to get back into contention over the past few seasons. It has been a rough stretch for the Mavericks, to say the least. While there have been some tough times for the Mavericks and their fan base, there is still time to get things back on track.

Heading into the offseason, the Mavericks knew they wanted to make a splash in free agency. In particular, the Mavericks wanted to finally bring in the star big man that they have been chasing for years.

DeAndre Jordan ended up being the player that they went out and signed. They signed him to a one-year, $24.1 million contract. His deal may not keep him in Dallas long-term, but if the season goes as both parties are hoping it wouldn’t be surprising to see them stay together.

Dallas had a contract agreement with Jordan a few years back before he backed out of the deal and ended up re-signing with the Los Angeles Clippers. This time around, Jordan wanted to join the Mavericks and the organization decided to give him a second chance and leave the past in the past.

Unfortunately, the Mavericks did lose three of their key free agents. Doug McDermott, Yogi Ferrell, and Seth Curry. All three players were role players last season and they will be missed.

All of that being said, what three things can the Mavericks take away from their 2018 NBA offseason?
