  1. 17 million for a 6'7 JJ Reddick basically. Mavs need elite defensive players, which is why youre already having discussions of can we even start klay with Luka/kyrie.

  2. Dallas should win a whole lot more 1st quarters this year.
    What they do to close games will be the interesting piece.
    Grimes has so much upside.

    Nico really seems to be able to see what fits here… Grant beign notable exception.
    PJ, Gafford, Exum. All greater in fit than cost or value as a whole.
    If Hardy can develop more as a PG this is a really good roster.
    If not that remains a whole.

    As noted, it is plenty good enough to run the regular season as a home playoff team.
    Especially as East got a lot better and West a bit softer this off-season.

  3. Klay brought more question than answer. We shouldn't be comparing Klay to THJ. Klay is bought in as the starting sf. We need to compare Klay to Jones. It's very questionable this team is indeed better off with Klay than Jones.

  4. I've lived in WA for the past 7 years, almost 8. I was asked to change the taxes for our business because state tax went up, and I blank faced. 😂 A what tax? 🤔

  5. "The Mavs got a free agent and the Lakers didn't". As a long suffering Mavs fan, this hurts so true. Plan Powder was a joke/failure! Glad we got Klay. LFG!!!

  6. What happened to the DJJ being our 1A and 1B plan? Why did he switch agents to Klutch Sports? The money would've been the same with state taxes in CA? Need more details on what happened? Nico pivoted quickly to sign Naji. He doesn't have the athleticism but is more polished offensively from what I've seen when I watch his highlights. DJJ was guarding our opponent's #1 guy on most nights. Are we going to expect Klay to take that role? Both Kyrie and Luka will need to be good defensively next year too. Kidd will have more weapons to tinker with the lineups. Kuddos to Nico for making this with what he had when he took over. A plus my man!

  7. nico is a legend, already done in the first week of free agency, we got klay, mrshall & grimes all solid 3 & D, i smell atleast 2 chips in dallas

  8. A consistent 18pts from Klay is all what we Mavs fans want. People joking about the 0/10 memes where in fact Klay had more good moments than bad moments during his last tenure with the Warriors. Between him and THJ, I'd rather take Klay lmao.

  9. Losing DJJ will hurt the Mavs the same way that Bucks losing Jrue Holiday hurt them as well. Klay barely came off the bench the last three years and has never recovered from his ACL and Achilles injuries. GSW won the chip in 2022 because Andrew Wiggins played defense and Jordan Poole was literally the other splash brother in the 2022 finals. Klay literally only blocked ONE shot in the entire playoffs and he literally shot 0 for 9 in his last playoff game! That's why Kaminga took KT's minutes and most likely why Klay left GSW. WIth teams like OKC, and Denver, the Mavs won't make it back to the finals. Plus the east is completely stacked, Boston is keeping ALL of it's players from last season, with them literally having both the best offense and defense in the playoffs) Plus, the Knicks and Sixers literally stacking their teams it proves that Dallas has a very long way to go to remain competitive. Luka literally has to lose all of that baby fat and to start learning how to be a two way player in order to be elite. That's why he's never won an MVP and likely never will. Boston completely exposed both Luka and Kyrie. Anyone who thinks that Dallas is getting a chip anytime soon is completely hallucinating.
