Dallas Mavericks: How is the team’s contingency plan going?

There is no doubt that the Dallas Mavericks are in a tough spot. The franchise lost Tyson Chandler, Monta Ellis, and Rajon Rondo, who were three of the five starters for the team last season. Players like Al-Farouq Aminu and Amar’e Stoudemire will also be missed as they were key role players who came off the bench for the team. Most importantly, quasi-acquiring DeAndre Jordan screwed...
