After missing the playoffs last season for the first time in the past 4 years, the Dallas Mavericks will look to bounce back in 2017-18. Rick Carlisle returns for his 9th season as head coach of the Mavs. Small forward Harrison Barnes will be relied upon as the primary scoring threat for this team. Barnes, already an above average NBA player, will look to continue his ascension into the NBA's elite. NBA legend Dirk Nowitzki returns for his 20th season with the Mavericks. Although limited athletically, Nowitzki remains a solid spot-up shooter and will stretch the floor for this offense. In the 2017 NBA draft, the Mavericks selected point guard Dennis Smith Jr. from NC State with the 4th overall pick. Smith was the talk of the draft and many analysts think Smith has superstar potential. If Smith is ready to contribute immediately, he should serve as the tertiary scoring threat behind Barnes and shooting guard, Wesley Matthews.
