Dallas Mavericks Rumors & News: Dwight Powell Returns, Mavs Bench Unit & Chris Paul Trade?

Luka Doncic, Kristaps Porzingis and the Dallas Mavericks are off to a hot start this season as they are currently 3-1 going into a big matchup against LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers. The Mavericks picked up a huge win over the Denver Nuggets thanks to the help of their bench. Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis didn’t have great games, but guys like Jalen Brunson, Maxi Kleber, Tim Hardaway Jr., Justin Jackson and Delon Wright. The Mavs’ bench has been a giant question mark going into the season, but the win over the nuggets made it seem like this team has true depth.

Dwight Powell returned to action against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday after missing the first three games of the season with a tweaked hamstring. The Mavs have solid big-man depth with guys like Kristaps Porzingis, Maxi Kleber and Boban Marjanovic, but bringing Dwight Powell in brings a whole new dynamic to the team with him rim-rolling ability. Powell put up multiple career-highs last season as the Mavericks primary center. He only played in 14 minutes against the Denver Nuggets, but his minutes should be extended as the year goes on.

Chris Paul is currently starting for the Oklahoma City Thunder but likely is not a long-term solution for them as they continue to rebuild. Bleacher Report believes Chris Paul makes sense for the Mavs as a secondary playmaker and a good shooter off the ball as well.
