NBA Free Agency 2012: Why Dallas Mavericks Are Huge Losers
The past two offseasons have been rather tumultuous for the Dallas Mavericks. Following an NBA Championship in 2011, they have failed to retain any of their significant free agents.
The team is now left depleted of many of the players that helped them win their first NBA Championship.
The Mavericks lost their best point guards, best big man and best player off the bench. The team is now extremely undersized and undermanned. They need a point guard badly and the market has grown thin.
Here's a look at how the Mavericks have failed to keep a championship roster intact and failed to make any significant additions to their team.
The Dallas Mavericks have failed do anything really positive since winning their first NBA Championship in 2011. This offseason has further proven that this is an organization going nowhere fast.
Last season, the Mavericks failed to re-sign defensive star Tyson Chandler. This came as a surprise to many, as he was one of the focal points of the championship team.
Without Chandler and Barea, the Mavericks struggled to make the playoffs, and were swept by Oklahoma City in round one. It's unlikely the Mavericks will ever be able to defeat the Heat in the NBA Finals.
The team began its roster turnover by trading Lamar Odom to the Los Angeles Clippers. This move shocked no one, since Odom never wanted to play for the Mavericks.
Losing Kidd leaves the Mavs with absolutely no experienced point guard on roster. Missing out on Williams furthers this issue.
Where do the Mavericks go from here? That's the question that has been continually asked since their failed attempt at Williams. Their best bet is to try and sign Ramon Sessions, the best point guard available.
All Dallas can do now is sit and wait. The future starts now as they will need to get younger and more talented. Hopefully, Dirk Nowitzki has enough gas left in the tank to right the ship.
