The Mavericks’ offseason may have gone unnoticed, but Dallas is probably in its best position it has been in since winning the NBA Championship in 2011. Most of that is because of the veterans they added to their starting lineup. Tyson Chandler was brought in with Raymond Felton early in the offseason, and although he may not be the defensive force he was in 2011, he will still anchor the Mavs defense in a tough Western Conference. Chandler Parsons’ signing with the Mavs was surprisingly not matched by the Rockets. In case you missed it, Cuban, Parsons, as well as Parsons’ agent telephonically agreed on a contract; later that night, Cuban appeared before Parsons in a nightclub, inking him to the unmatched deal right then and there while showing the importance of bringing him to the team. Lastly, Dallas signed free agent Jameer Nelson, and although he has struggled since the departure of Dwight Howard in Orlando, the Mavs are hoping he can rediscover his shooting stroke alongside Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis, Chandler Parsons, and Tyson Chandler.
