The Dallas Mavericks made a lot of moves this NBA offseason and not all of them were on the roster.

The front office and coaching staff saw an overhaul, as Donnie Nelson and Rick Carlisle are no longer with the organization. Nico Harrison and Jason Kidd are replacing them as general manager and head coach, respectively.

Dallas is going to look a lot different this season with those changes, but the roster also saw some tweaks. Josh Richardson was traded to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Moses Brown, which created a traded player exception.

The team option for Willie Cauley-Stein was picked up, while Tim Hardaway Jr. and Boban Marjanovic were both re-signed. Two players from outside the organization, Sterling Brown and Reggie Bullock were signed.

Brown and Bullock will give Dallas two more excellent 3-point shooters, as both connect at better than 40 percent from distance. They are also two good defenders, something the Mavericks certainly need more of this season.

While those are two solid signings, Dallas didn’t accomplish one of the goals they set out to do, which was to acquire a secondary ball-handler to play alongside Luka Doncic. But, they can still accomplish that goal via trade.
