Dallas Mavericks: Maxi Kleber loves to throw down a dunk

The Dallas Mavericks found a gem in Maxi Kleber. He signed a two-year deal in 2017. Kleber was already 26 years old, and the German was not a highly touted NBA prospect.

What he has done since joining the Mavs is remarkable. Kleber battled for minutes in a deep frontcourt all season. He proved worthy of an every night role because of his rim protecting ability. Kleber is averaging 19.9 minutes per game and blocking 1.2 shots a night.

Protecting the rim is not Maxi Kleber’s only skill, though. He can stretch the floor.
