Gibson was the Mavericks' leading scorer after starting six games in the Las Vegas Summer League, during which he averaged 17 points per game while shooting 50.7 percent from the floor and 45.9 percent from behind the arc.
The Mavs' newly-signed point guard managed to post his respectable scoring line while averaging 24.9 minutes per game. While it's promising that he was able to score at a high rate, there are reasons to be concerned about the 28-year-old's ability to effectively distribute the ball, as Gibson averaged more turnovers than assists per game (2.2 versus 1.7). Currently listed behind Deron Williams, J.J. Barea, and Devin Harris on the depth chart at point guard, Gibson's time on the floor in the coming season is likely to be very limited, giving him few scoring opportunities.
Nowitzki originally agreed to a two-year contract worth around $40 million, but the Mavs have officially upped the number for their veteran forward. He'll be joined in the team's frontcourt by newcomers Andrew Bogut and Harrison Barnes, but Nowitzki will likely remain a solid scoring weapon and viable fantasy option.
Collinsworth signed a two-year, partially guaranteed deal with the
Collinsworth wasn't selected in the 2016 NBA Draft, but apparently made a lasting impression on the Mavericks in Summer League, where he averaged 4.2 points, 3.3 boards and 2.5 assists per game over six contests. The rookie out of BYU averaged 15.3 points, 7.4 assists and 8.2 rebounds in his senior season, but shot only 24-percent from three, a mark that he will need to improve on if he hopes to see the court in 2016-17. He will face heavy competition for playing time from Justin Anderson, Jonathan Gibson, Quincy Acy, and Seth Curry among others.
Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle recently said that he expects Powell to be a rotation player during the 2016-17 season, ESPN.com's Tim MacMahon reports. "The last two years we've been working toward this period where we could get [Powell] signed to a longer-term deal and integrate him to our everyday rotation," Carlisle said. "He's a combination 'four'/'five.' I see him playing both positions. Time will tell how much at each, but I do believe there are going to be a lot of situations where he'll play both positions in the same game."
Though he appeared in 69 of the Mavs' 82 regular-season games last season, Powell was only a fringe rotation option for the team, averaging just 5.8 points and 4.0 rebounds in 14.4 minutes per game. With the Mavs stepping up this summer to re-sign Powell to a four-year, $37 million contract, the third-year big man will now have a chance to see an expanded role as a primary backup to either starting power forward Dirk Nowitzki or starting center Andrew Bogut. Given how injury prone Bogut has been historically, Powell represents a quality insurance option down low for the Mavs, and could produce some sneaky fantasy value during the upcoming season.
Australia coach Andrej Lemanis said that he'd wait until the day before the Olympics begin before determining if Bogut feels fit enough to suit up for the Boomers, who kick off their schedule Aug. 6. The center, who sustained bone bruising around his left knee while playing with the Warriors in the NBA Finals back in June, was traded to the
