After a 41-41 season, the Dallas Mavericks are in need of some serious regrouping as they move forward into the 2013-14 campaign.
The Mavericks had their 12-year playoff streak ended this season. They will be looking to make some renovations as nine players currently on their current roster are eligible for free agency.
It's likely the Mavs will be bringing back some of their players. Still, they will certainly be looking improve their roster in every area and will have the necessary cap space to do so.
Many Mavs fans are clamoring for the team to go sign a superstar like Dwight Howard, but considering that the team was mediocre this season, attracting a free agent of Howard's profile will be challenging. Dallas has very few young up-and-coming players and the team's best player is nearly 35; the Mavericks realistically won't be in the running for a player of that magnitude.
Instead, they would be smart to go after second-tier free agents who will still greatly improve their club but who should be easier to get under contract.
