The Dallas Mavericks have spent $15 million on the free agents the franchise hopes to land next season.
Free agents are a priority for the Mavericks, who could be poised to add a superstar player or two this summer.
They also have to pay $7 million to $9 million in salary cap space next season, according to Spotrac.
The Mavericks are currently one of the teams with the most salary cap room on their books.
The only other team with a higher cap space percentage is the Philadelphia 76ers, who have $15.6 million in cap space.
Mavericks general manager Donnie Nelson and his staff are expected to make some decisions this summer that will determine who goes where.
The most logical move for Dallas would be to go with a veteran who can help the Mavericks win now, or a veteran whose long-term value will grow with a longer term.
That’s what happened last season when the Mavericks signed Deron Williams and Wesley Matthews to long-range deals.
Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said last week he hopes to sign a big free agent to play for the franchise this summer, and the Mavericks are reportedly looking at free agents who can provide a lot of production for the team.
Mavericks fans can look forward to a lot more Mavericks in the coming years, but one thing will remain the same: The Mavericks will always be the one team that pays.
