After completing a sign-and-trade for Klay Thompson, which saw Josh Green go to the Charlotte Hornets and second-round picks go to the Golden State Warriors, the Dallas Mavericks now have just one open roster spot.

Dallas has signed three new players for the upcoming season: Naji Marshall has been signed, Quentin Grimes has been traded, and Thompson has been signed. Now it’s time to think about who the Mavs will give their final roster spot to.

Nico Harrison and management have done a great job filling out this roster from top to bottom and this latest player they will likely sign in the coming weeks could put the Mavs back near the top of the Western Conference depending on who it ends up being.

The Mavs are clearly in need of a defender who can lead the offense, as Derrick Jones Jr. has signed with the LA Clippers. Grimes could fill that role, but his knee injury could prevent him from ever returning to top form.

The Mavs will also need a ball handler off the bench, because as things stand right now, Luka Doncic, Kyrie Irving, Dante Exum and Jaden Hardy (if you think he’ll take another step toward improving as a playmaker) are the team’s only reliable ball handler.

Regardless of how strong Dallas’ roster is right now, this final roster spot will be a major decision for the Mavs’ management.

Here are 10 free agents the Dallas Mavericks should sign to fill their final roster spot.

Regardless of how Spencer Dinwiddie walked away from the Mavs last season and signed with the Los Angeles Lakers after being bought out, he’s definitely someone the team should consider signing with their final roster spot. The Mavs have already shown interest in Dinwiddie, and he would immediately become the team’s third ball handler, and even get a chance to be one of the first players off the bench.

Last season, Dinwiddie averaged 10.5 points, 2.7 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game while shooting 39.2 percent from the field and 33.7 percent from downtown. This was an inefficient season for Dinwiddie in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, but he could have the perfect opportunity to come back to Dallas.

Dinwiddie already knows how to play next to Doncic, as he and Luka led the team to the Western Conference Finals in 2022. Plus, he and the organization already know each other somewhat.

Dinwiddie was well-liked by his teammates in Dallas and helped tremendously with the younger guys. Hardy was someone who spoke highly of Dinwiddie when they were teammates, and it would be an easy adjustment to have Dinwiddie back on the roster.

Dinwiddie’s ability to play off the ball and lead the offense when needed is intriguing and he would be a great addition to the Mavs as they look to bolster their roster.
