The Mavs also reached a deal with fan-favorite center Boban Marjanovic, per multiple reports. The 7-foot-4 Marjanovic averaged 4.7 points and 3.9 rebounds last season but was a markedly improved playoff performer, upping those numbers to 11.8 ppg and 8.0 rpg.

Hardaway enjoyed a bounce-back season in 2020-21, averaging 16.6 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 70 games with Dallas. He led the Mavs in 3-pointers made (207) and was second in attempts (529), shooting 39.1% from deep and 44.7% overall.
He averaged 26 points in an eight-game stretch late in the regular season when the Mavericks successfully avoided the Play-In Tournament. In Game 2 of the Mavs’ first-round series against the LA Clippers, Hardaway had 28 points including a huge 3-pointer late to help Dallas secure a second consecutive road win in the first NBA playoff series in which the road team won the first six games.
