NBA Free Agency Tracker *Updated Live*

After some deliberation I’ve decided to go ahead and do a Free Agency Tracker and update it live. I’ll be using the template from my previous free agency piece but with some names moved around. I did not list every free agent but listed most of the ones that either matter or could end up on the Mavericks.  Continue reading NBA Free Agency Tracker *Updated Live*


Mavs Free Agency Outlook

It’s that time of year again. Mavs fans are wondering what big name free agent the Mavs are going to lure in. This is the 9th year of this cycle and yet somehow Mavs fans remain optimistic. I love it, honestly, but I can’t join in the optimism. Every year there’s been a new reason that this year is different, and every year we have to accept that it isn’t.

NBA Draft Sleeper: Quinndary Weatherspoon

I have to give myself credit for being an early believer in Quinndary. I went to watch Mississippi State to scout his brother and he jumped off the screen to me. I was shocked to not find him on any boards but that changed soon after. I love his game and feel like he is the type of guy that can “come out of nowhere” and be a contributor, maybe even a starter, for some team down the road. Continue reading NBA Draft Sleeper: Quinndary Weatherspoon

NBA Draft Sleeper Profile: Carsen Edwards

If you’ve listened to a single episode of the 3rd Round Picks podcast or follow me on twitter you’ve likely heard me talk about Carsen Edwards. It was likely no surprise that he ended up in my top 15 when the board came out. In short, I love Carsen Edwards. I love his game, I love his personality, and I believe he’s going to be around for a long time.  Continue reading NBA Draft Sleeper Profile: Carsen Edwards

NBA Draft Sleeper Profile: Jaylen Nowell

Jaylen Nowell caught my by surprise. I got around to scouting Washington pretty early in the process but all the hype was around Thybulle. I was barely paying attention to Nowell because he wasn’t on many people’s boards but I couldn’t help to notice his talent. Others started taking notice around that time as well and he continued to get better as the season went on. I did not know where he would land on my board when I sat down to put it together but I only had a slight hesitation about putting him at 12.  Continue reading NBA Draft Sleeper Profile: Jaylen Nowell

Pacers Player Profile: Goga Bitadze

While I was pulling for Goga to be drafted by Charlotte I LOVE that he’s going to a playoff team. Not just a playoff team but a team with a young core that he can grow with over the next few years. I think he is a big unlike any that they already have and instantly adds versatility to their lineups. It’s also a team that is not going need him to do a ton early so he can be brought in slowly if necessary.  Continue reading Pacers Player Profile: Goga Bitadze

Hornets Player Profile: PJ Washington

As an NBA fan living in South Carolina the closest team to me is the Charlotte Hornets. I’ve been a Mavs fan for as long as I can remember but I’ve been in South Carolina for 17 years now and have been supporting them more and more over the years. One area that they have routinely failed historically has been the draft so on top of the looming Kemba Walker free agency decision, the draft has been a huge source of anxiety for Buzz City.  Continue reading Hornets Player Profile: PJ Washington

NBA Draft 2019: Top Mavs Targets

The Mavs, for the first time in a long time, have two big time players that are under 25. Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis are the future but we need to add complimentary pieces around them. While there is a ton of talk online about 30 year olds that might come in and help the Mavs compete, I’m way more interested in the young guys we can bring in who can grow with the big 2. The types of players we need fall into two camps.  Continue reading NBA Draft 2019: Top Mavs Targets
