Dallas Mavericks 2012: Why the Mavs Are Winners in Free Agency

When you mention the Mavericks and free agency, many of us still get a little physically ill.  It's going to take a while to put aside the summer of 2011, when Cuban & Co. let four key members of the NBA Champions walk out the door, only to be replaced with an ostensibly great player who had a complete meltdown starting before his arrival and continuing until after he left....

That would be Lamar Odom Kardashian, by the way.

This summer didn't start out much better.  Deron Williams and Steve Nash didn't want to play in Dallas and then Jason Kidd and Jason Terry left the building.  The haters were projecting the Mavs for the lottery and heckling fans for Cuban's apparent abandonment of Dirk in the twilight of his career.

After the big fish got away, however, the front office kicked into high gear and made some surprising moves that put Dallas back on the map.  With one of the biggest roster shuffles in the NBA primarily due to free agency, the Mavericks will be sporting a drastically different team this next season.

Here's a list of the free agents who left, those who arrived, and how it should play out next season.
