Rumbo a 2017-18: Dallas Mavericks

El conjunto de Rick Carlisle tendrá una temporada de desafíos en la que buscará romper moldes pre-establecidos.

Bobby Marks ESPN 

The Nerlens Noel $4.1M qualifying offer signed is $200K less than his 2016-17 salary of $4.3M. The lower figure is a result of Noel not reaching starter criteria thus triggering the qualifying offer representing the 15th pick in the 2013 Draft. Noel did not meet the criteria of starting 41 games or playing 2,000 minutes during the 2016-17 season. Noel could have met the criteria if he averaged 41 games or 2,000 minutes over the past 2 seasons also. The qualifying offer for reaching the criteria would have been $5.8M.

Nerlens Noel will become an unrestricted free agent in 2018. Noel must consent to any trade this season or will lose bird rights.

Simmons leading the pack in ROY odds

Ben Simmons, the No. 1 pick in the 2016 draft, missed all of last season due to a foot injury. That qualifies him to be considered a rookie in 2017-18. The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook gives the Sixers foward the best chance to win the Rookie of the Year award this season.

Summer Forecast: West standings for 2017-18

Our panel sees the Mavericks staying in place this season, but the addition of Dennis Smith Jr. will at least make things more exciting in Dallas.

Bobby Marks ESPN 

Six weeks (October 1) until the qualifying offer (QO) for restricted free agents expire (unless extended). There are still five players that can sign the QO; Nerlens Noel ($4.2M), Mason Plumlee ($4.6M), Nikola Mirotic ($7.3M), Alex Len ($4.2M) and JaMychal Green ($2.8M). A player will see still be a RFA past October 1 but with no qualifying offer on the table. A player signing the QO would have veto power to any trade.
