Outlook: The best shooting bigman in the game, sporting the best mid-range game in the entire league. Rebounding is slipping a bit but should be negated by the acquisition of Shawn Marion. Could be playing center full-time once he loses his speed advantage over PFs (and this could also come sooner than later looking at Dallas' depth chart).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Jason Kidd (PG)

Standing Dunk 50

Outlook: Reports of his career demise have been greatly exaggerated. Still a quality defensive player and floor general. Among the top rebounding PGs in the league, rivaled only by Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Josh Howard (SF/SG)
Overall 86

Outlook: Howard has an all-around game at SF, but his perimeter game is below average for a SG (the position he may be asked to play this season). How he adjusts will be the deciding factor in whether the Mavs are a contender or a pretender.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Jason Terry (SG)

Outlook: Should continue to be one of the top sixth men in the league unless he is called upon to start.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Hands 88
Ball Defense 84 (down from 86)
Standing Dunk 75

Outlook: Before I hear any complaints, Marion is an 83 overall at PF. His perimeter game is not ideal for SF, and he comes off the worst season of his career. He may rebound from this playing next to Jason Kidd, but it's also just as likely he stays the same or regresses further. Could even find himself in a bench role if Josh Howard does not work out at SG.

Standing Dunk 75

Outlook: Dallas starting center for quite awhile now, and is actually a very underrated player. Catches a lot of heat, but performs his role exactly how the coaching staff wants (picks, fouls, shot blocking, offensive boards, and limiting his offensive touches to putbacks).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Quickness 67

Standing Dunk 75

Outlook: Gooden may start at center, and should take most of the minutes vacated by Brandon Bass. Honestly I'm a little surprised teams haven't tried this sooner, as Gooden hasn't quite worked out as a power forward.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Jose Barea (PG/SG)

Outlook: Barea has a lot in common with Jason Terry and serves as a shoot-first alternative to Jason Kidd.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Outlook: Good shooter for a PF but doesn't bring much else at this point. Never tapped into any of his potential.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Outlook: Humphries is a good rebounder but that's about all he has on Dirk Nowitzki. That basically makes him the PF version of Erick Dampier.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Outlook: Ross should fill the defensive wing role that Antoine Wright played last year. Except he'll probably be doing it off the bench. And actually be good at it.

Outlook: Carroll is a good shooter, but unfortunately doesn't bring anything else to the table that would warrant playing him over Jason Terry.

Outlook: G-Buck only has a partially guaranteed contract, and thus is trade bait for teams looking to save money the same way Bruce Bowen was (before ultimately being waived). Buckner though, may find it just a wee bit tougher to find work than Bowen when that time comes.

Outlook: Jawai is a big center may or may not make the team. I would find it highly amusing if he ended up being as good as Marcin Gortat.

Outlook: Has lots of personal issues and isn't good enough on the court to warrant them. Here's hoping Dallas gets rid of him so they can retain James Singleton.

Dear 2K Insider,


You suck.
