David Aldridge of The Athletic ranked Dallas as having the seventh-best off-season this year. Aldridge stated that Dallas got the ranking due to their improvement with “limited pieces”, their acquisition of “one of the top” free agents in Grant Williams, and their retention of superstar Kyrie Irving. He concludes his ranking by saying that Dallas is “deeper and more versatile going forward.”
Dallas had a good off-season. They made the right moves after a disappointing season and turned their roster over in a lull year for free agents. With respect to the rest of the league, Boston’s acquisition of Kristaps Porzingis and Phoenix’s trade for Bradley Beal exceed Dallas’ deal with Grant Williams.
