Mavs free-agent series: Center Zaza Pachulia would be a 'wonderful sidekick' as a backup, but he's expendable

Keep him: Tyson Chandler had the right idea. He thought last summer that staying in Dallas with Zaza Pachulia as his backup at center would be a perfect pairing. Pachulia helped keep the Mavericks afloat in the first half of last season. He tailed off after that but still was a consummate pro and a big asset on the court. He would be a wonderful sidekick to somebody like Bismack...

Dwight Howard could be the Mavericks' best option to upgrade at center

The Mavericks need a better plan than Pachulia, Mejri and Lee if they want to contend. After #DeAndreGate last offseason, the Mavs managed to cobble together a somewhat respectable center rotation, with Zaza Pachulia shining early, Salah Mejri providing a spark later on in the season, David Lee bringing a respectable presence, and JaVale McGee, well....he was there too. But there...

The Mavs allowed only 35.0 field goal attempts per game from less than 10 feet...
