Speaking to Earl Sneed about the upcoming NBA season, Coach Rick Carlisle said, “Rebounding is a big challenge. It’s been a big challenge for us all year, so we’re going to have to do a better job than we’ve done from top to bottom.”
The Mavs were the very worst rebounders in the NBA last season and hope to make some significant improvements. From a fantasy perspective, it’s hard to say who will benefit but it’s safe to assume Nerlens Noel will likely be asked to focus more on his role in the rebounding portion of the game. Noel averaged 6.8 rebounds per game in 22 games for the Mavs last season.
