  • Dwight Powell - F/C - Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell officially opted into the final year of his contract with the Mavs for $10.2 million, with both sides hoping to agree to an extension in July.

    Powell took offense to an earlier report from Yahoo! Sports that stated he would be turning down his player option, and now we have official word on why he was so upset. Powell's role next season is less certain with Kristaps Porzingis' imminent return and the Mavs having a ton of cap room available. Though, if the extension talks are accurate, we'd have to assume that Powell remains an important piece of the Mavs puzzle moving forward.

    Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News is hearing that Dwight Powell plans to opt-in to his $10,259,375 player option with the Mavs for next season.

    Powell, who yesterday denied an earlier report by Yahoo! Sports that he will decline the option, has until June 29 to make it official. It is uncertain what role Powell would have on the Mavs next season with the team looking to lock down Kristaps Porzingis in addition to having money to blow in free agency.

    Dwight Powell denied the validity of the Yahoo! Sports report that he will explore free agency on Tuesday, saying “I did not have any conversation prior to that article coming out with whoever wrote it. So I don’t know where the information came from. I didn’t have any conversation with anybody about that.”

    Powell was in Dallas on Tuesday to help dedicate a new Mavs Tech Center that will serve former foster youth, ages 16-24, as well as homeless youth in DISD schools. While it is certainly possible that Powell opts out and elects to hit the open market in search for a long-term contract, if we're going by his word, that decision has yet to be made.

    According to Chris Haynes, Dwight Powell will turn down his $10.2 million player option and will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

    At just 27 years old, Powell is likely looking to get a longer deal with more guaranteed money. However, there are a litany of fours and fives that could be on the market this summer, making this an interesting decision for Powell. With Kristaps Porzingis returning from injury, Powell may seek more minutes elsewhere. A return to Dallas is still certainly in the cards for him.

    Dwight Powell said on Thursday, "I definitely want to be here," but declined to say whether he would exercise his contract option with the Mavs this summer.

    Powell can always negotiate a multi-year deal even if he declines his option. With Kristaps Porzingis looking to make his return next season in a presumed feature role, Powell may opt to take the wait-and-see approach and weigh all his options.

  • Dwight Powell - F/C - Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell cruised to the finish in Wednesday's finale against the Spurs, scoring seven points on 1-of-3 shooting (5-of-6 FTs) with 11 rebounds and two assists over 33 minutes.

    Powell was an early-to-mid round player (9/8 cat) over the last two months of the season as he got easy look after easy look playing with Luke Doncic. His efficiency has always been why we've had him on the fantasy radar, and he finally bucked the inconsistency that had plagued him in the past.

    Dwight Powell is not listed on Sunday's injury report.

    Powell got Friday night off for rest, but will now return with Luka Doncic and Maxi Kleber both out. He should be in for a good game.

    The Mavs are listing Dwight Powell (load management) as out for Friday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Maxi Kleber is in line to play a big role tonight and makes for a quality streaming option against a depleted Grizzlies frontcourt.

    Dwight Powell (load management) is questionable to take the court Friday vs. the Grizzlies.

    If Powell does in fact sit on Friday night, look for Maxi Kleber to take on a big role. He has a chance to provide value in DFS as he would get plenty of opportunity.

  • Dwight Powell - F/C - Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell had a great game in a loss to the Wolves on Wednesday, with 25 points and eight rebounds on 8-of-9 shooting.

    He shot 7-of-8 from the line and added two assists, two steals and one block to the box score. He is a top-30 value for the remaining four games of the season, so get him locked into all lineups.

    Dwight Powell scored 14 points on 5-of-6 shooting with four rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and two triples in 22 minutes on Monday against the Sixers.

    Powell continues to score at an insanely efficient rate, which is something he's always been able to do so keep him locked in your lineups. Maxi Kleber logged 25 minutes and scored 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting with five rebounds, two assists, two steals and two triples and is also worth owning for defensive counters.

  • Dwight Powell - F/C - Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell approached a double-double on Thursday with 11 points and nine boards in 32 minutes of action.

    Unfortunately, there wasn't much else for Powell in a quiet night. Still, the playing time has been consistent and Powell has been a true find over that stretch as a top-50 option. Expect that to be the case the rest of the way.

    Dwight Powell went big against the Kings on Tuesday, scoring 21 points on 6-of-7 shooting (9-of-11 FTs) with 13 rebounds, three assists and four blocks over 32 minutes.

    Powell has been a top-20 player in 9-cat formats over the last month and a top-50 player over the last two months. For all the times we've collectively hoped he would cash in and couldn't, this run through the fantasy playoffs has been worth the wait.

  • Dwight Powell - F/C - Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell managed just four points, six rebounds, five assists and a steal in 26 minutes on Saturday night.

    Powell wasn't needed for much with Dallas up big early and in cruise control for most of the night. He's still a must-start player through the end of the year despite the quiet game tonight. Jalen Brunson also fits that bill with 11 points, four rebounds, five assists and a 3-pointer in his 24 minutes.

  • Dwight Powell - F/C - Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell scored 14 points on 4-of-6 shooting while adding four rebounds, five assists, a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer on Thursday.

    Powell hit most of his free throws tonight (5-for-6 FTs) and maintained his high shooting averages which is something we're accustomed to by now. There's nothing stopping him from maintaining his current value as the Mavs have settled into their rotations. Salah Mejri (two points, three boards, three blocks in nine minutes) played well in his short amount of time and may be worth a look in deeper leagues if you're in need of a blocks specialist.
