So the Mavs have said they would really like to add Charlotte free agent Gerald Wallace. And on the surface, that sounds like a great idea. He's athletic, a good defender and likes to do the dirty work. But the reality is that he put up numbers on a bad team, and he is a flat-out awful jump shooter. It's either dunk or layup, because Wallace can't even make free throws.
This reminds me a lot of last off-season, when the Mavs just had to have Raptors free-agent guard Mike James. Thank goodness that never worked out.
The same thing will happen this time, because Wallace will probably be way out of the Mavs' price range. Besides, the Mavs already have a better version of Wallace. His name is Josh Howard. And he can shoot.
