Dallas Mavericks: 3 Takeaways from the 2018 NBA Offseason

DeAndre Jordan Likely Isn’t the Long-Term Solution

Finally, the Mavericks’ addition of Jordan is a splash for this season, but it is likely not the long-term solution that Dallas needs to find. Signing Clint Capela to a max offer sheet would have been a much better investment Jordan might stick around long-term in Dallas, but he is already 29 years old and will not grow with Smith and Doncic.

Jordan will bring top-notch rebounding and defense, but his offense is questionable. He isn’t the type of big man that a team can throw the ball to in the post and expect him to score.

Cuban and the Mavericks made it clear that they wanted a name. Jordan brings that, but on a one-year deal there is a chance that he could bolt next offseason.

It will be interesting to see how the marriage between Jordan and the Mavericks goes this season. His history with Dallas will make things even more interesting.

Expect to see Jordan put a solid all-around season together, but there is a very good chance that he isn’t going to be the Mavericks’ franchise center for long.
