At 17-23, it has been somewhat of a tumultuous first half of the season for the Dallas Mavericks in 2012-2013.
Dallas just hasn't been able to find the right rotation to win consistently, and they also have had to deal with several injuries including not having Dirk Nowitzki for the first third of the year.
Although the Mavs still have time to turn it around, a few tweaks, or lack thereof, on the roster this year could have potentially put them in a better position than they are in now of trying to dig themselves out of a whole to get back in the top eight in the West.
Whether it was cutting a player, bringing in one that the team didn't need or just not handling minutes correctly, the Mavs might regret making these personnel moves this season.
