The Mavs and restricted free agent Dwight Powell are headed toward an agreement according to beat writer Eddie Sefko.
Sefko writes that it could be in the $5 million range and if that’s the case and the Mavs can convince him to do this it’s a great deal. We projected him at $8 million per year for three years thinking the rest of the league would be on to Rick Carlisle’s stashing of this player, but maybe not. We ranked him as the No. 7 power forward available in terms of projected price to value and if the deal is in this range he could end up being a steal if he taps into the proverbial upside.
