Offseason: Free Agency | Latest from Ken Berger | Rumors

The Mavericks are reportedly looking at two veteran point guard to round out the roster: Jameer Nelson and Mo Williams.

Here's a look at the numbers for both players last year.

And per 36 minutes:

Both players are similar, in that they can run the offense a little bit and will gun from the outside at times. Nelson is a more gifted passer, Williams a better shooter. Both, fittingly, were All-Stars in 2009 (Nelson was injured and Williams was a replacement, though not for Nelson).

The Mavs need another veteran point guard, with Devin Harris and Raymond Felton as their only veteran options beyond Ricky Ledo. Both players may be past their prime, but they would still be good fits in Dallas.
