With Jason Kidd unexpectedly agreeing to a multiyear deal with the New York Knicks, the Dallas Mavericks have seven players under contract -- officially contracts can't be signed until Wednesday. The Mavs also have three draft picks that will be given every opportunity to make the team, so add it up and that's 11 players.
Teams must have a minimum of 13 players on the 15-man roster, so the Mavs are not done in the free-agent market, and trades also remain in play as the roster overhaul continues.
Kidd's sudden departure leaves a gaping hole at point guard. With Jason Terry headed out, the Mavs have only Vince Carter as a true shooting guard along with combo guards Rodrigue Beaubois, Dominique Jones and rookie Jared Cunningham. More quality choices exist at shooting guard than at point guard.
The Mavs have to decide how much they're willing to pay and how long they're willing to go as they work to maintain flexibility moving forward after striking out with Deron Williams.
Here's a position-by-position look at a handful of free agents still on the market:
Aaron Brooks (restricted)
Ray Allen (appears bound for Boston or Miami)
