The Dallas Mavericks did not make an upgrade at the trade deadline. The front office searched for moves, but it could not find the perfect fit. The Mavs still wanted to improve their roster as they head into the stretch run. That meant searching the buyout market and free agency.
The Mavericks found their man after the Charlotte Hornets bought out Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. The veteran lacks the playoff experience they were searching for with only four games under his belt, but he is defensive-minded forward that should fill a role.
MKG officially signed with the Mavs on Feb.
