Eddie Sefko, Mavericks exhausted biographer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered questions about the aggregation during a alive babble Tuesday. Actuality are some highlights, edited for clarity:
Question: Should the Mavs accomplish a run at Joakim Noah?
Eddie Sefko: Why? Area would he play? DeAndre Jordan is the starting center. Dirk Nowitzki (whenever he gets healthy), Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber all would be advanced of Noah on the abyss chart. It would assume like an accidental accession to me. And by the way, accept you apparent his numbers from the aftermost few seasons? Yuck.
Q: What will Ryan Broekhoff’s role be with the Mavs this season? Is he aloof there to ample a agenda spot, or do they accept affairs for him in their future?
Sefko: The Mavericks apperceive he’s a adorable shooter. What they achievement is he can do abundant added things to acquire a atom in the rotation. One affair we apperceive about Rick Carlisle is that everybody on the agenda will get affairs as the division goes along. It’s what they do with those affairs back they appear that determines a player’s fate. If he makes shots, that ability be abundant to get the coach’s attention. And I anticipate he’s got an accomplished attempt (so to speak) of actuality about aing season, too, back he has a two-year deal, although aing division is not absolutely guaranteed.
Q: How continued will it booty for Luka Doncic to become the best amateur on this team?
Sefko: The eventually the better. I’m not abiding it’s activity to appear overnight. Anticipate of the teenagers who came in and were instantly their team’s best player. Back you get accomplished LeBron James, I’m not abiding who abroad would be on the list. Maybe Kevin Garnett. But alike Dirk Nowitzki bare two seasons to acquisition his NBA legs. It wasn’t until Year 3 that he was acutely the Mavericks’ best player. Let’s accord the kid a adventitious to grow.
Q: With the adequate aces for the Mavs in Atlanta this year, is tanking out of the question? And if so, realistically, how aing are we to a playoff atom and at what point do we cut allurement for the division if it starts activity bad?
Sefko: With the new action rules, tanking for any aggregation is beneath of an option. You aren’t activity to accretion that abundant of an advantage. And for the Mavericks, it’s absolutely off the table. Now, if they accept addition 2-14 alpha to the season, again who knows what will happen. The absolute agenda ability be accessible afore the barter deadline. But with a almost appropriate agenda for the aboriginal six weeks or so, if the Mavericks can’t be about .500 (or better) at the end of November, abashment on them.
Q: What has to appear this division for DeAndre Jordan to break with the Mavs long-term?
Sefko: Aloof win, baby. I get the activity Jordan would like to stick about in his home state. But in the NBA, you go area the better opportunities and better paychecks are. If one of the aristocratic contenders wants to accomplish Jordan an action he can’t refuse, he’d be asinine not to booty it. But abbreviate of that, I’d say a admirable division with allusive amateur in March and April would be a acceptable assurance to Jordan and everybody abroad that the adamantine times are gone and the Mavericks can alpha absolutely counting about how abounding added pieces they charge afore they are contending. After the aftermost two seasons, there accept been too abounding holes to count.
