Mavericks blow: they sign Kemba Walker and throw out Facu Campazzo

The Mavericks have not waited any longer. After the last defeat, against the Bucks, which has put them with a negative balance in the classification, they move on the transfer market. They are about to incorporate the New Yorker Kemba Walker, according to the journalist Marc Stein has advancedAll that remains is for it to pass the medical examination.

Walker, 32, is an experienced point guard who was without a team. He stood out, in his day, in the Hornets, with what he became all star as of 2017. His later spells with the Celtics and Knicks fell short of expectations. In his best times (2018/19) he reached 25.6 points and 5.9 assists, in his last year he could only average 11.6 points and 3.5 assists.

The Mavericks had reserved the last spot on the roster to play the market. They signed Campazzo with a contract that was not completely guaranteed and they were pending situations such as that of Walker, who had just been released by Detroit, a union that has finally forged when Kidd verified that they have not surrounded Luka Doncic as the Slovenian deserves.

The Dallas team must now make room for the new player. For this, the bases have been subject to scrutiny. Jaden Hardy it is still a long-term project, as it has been captured in the last draft. Frank Ntilikina He counts as a defensive expert and, supposedly, as a second option to Doncic when it comes to handling the ball when neither he nor Dinwiddie are the ones who have it. Theo Pinson Y Facu Campazzo They are the ones who played the least in that position and in favor of the first he counted his experience in the team and how well he is seen among his teammates. The Argentine was, therefore, the one who had the most ballots to be cut until Shams Charania (The Athletic) He confirmed that this would be the case: Campazzo does not continue (his salary, of 1.8 million dollars, was the only one not guaranteed until the end of 2022/23). A few hours later the Mavs confirmed his departure.

Jalen Brunson’s departure in the summer has broken the scheme that he balanced so well and the Mavs opted for the reinforcement of Christian Wood, who still lacks coupling and confidence, as a reference player inside. Doncic has accused physical fatigue not only due to the passing of the matches but also due to the responsibility of direction and scoring that comes with him since there are no other references that contribute to a high volumemanagers have seen it and have not waited any longer to shake the shaker of the roster of these Mavs, who will test a more expert game director who -on the contrary- will have to take shape soon to raise the level of the group.
