Now that the dust has settled somewhat, the Dallas Mavericks can take a step back and evaluate what they have. After a whirlwind of an offseason, the roster looks quite different than it did in June.
There are lots of new faces and some familiar ones. Between trades and free agency, the Mavs have somehow reinvented their roster yet kept the old guard at the same time.
One thing that can surely be agreed on, though, is that the roster is improved.
Two key positions were upgraded: Dallas got their first big free agent in swingman Chandler Parsons and traded for top-of-the-line big man Tyson Chandler. And despite all the turnover, the bench is still deep.
But of course, with a changing roster things won't be the same for the newcomers. They will have to adapt to the way the Mavs play, and because of that their styles will change.
It might be small changes for some and bigger changes for others. It all depends on what the team needs.
Using Dallas' official roster, we'll go through each new player and get into what to expect from them in the upcoming season. And considering that could be half the team, there's quite a lot to cover.
