Dallas is still transitioning into youthful team, although Dirk Nowitzki returned on a one year deal, and they still have Wesley Matthews who has not bounced back since that nasty Achilles injury a few seasons ago. The deadweight on this Dallas team is astonishing, and the likeliness of rotations is going to be a bit unclear. They made massive additions this season, getting DeAndre Jordan this time around. Dallas has lacked a clearcut center, and we don’t have to dance around with the Dwight Powell, Maxi Kleber, Salah Mejri debacle anymore. Jordan will be the starting center in Dallas.

Game Result

Jordan provides some help for a team that was bottom ten in rebounding the last two seasons. He also gives them some rim protection, which they also struggled from. Don’t expect Jordan’s numbers to drop or go up this year, he is a limited option, but still brings strong production on the glass. The big question is where they will play Luka Doncic. Dallas was fortunate enough to land what is a promising young overseas player. He can stretch and play the three, but is currently listed as a shooting guard. If that is the case, Wesley Matthews will play the three, while Harrison Barnes plays the four. Dallas has a backcourt built for the future, at least so they hope. Dennis Smith Jr is heading into his second year, and flashed a lot of potential as a scorer. His defense needs work, but overall Dallas is going to be a bit better defensively. Smith Jr had some minutes issues last season, but with only J.J. Barea backing him up, 30+ minutes on average should be there. Barea does continue to provide cheap fantasy production off the bench, and is always a terrific fill-in when Dallas has injured guards.
