Will the Mavericks sign veterans or younger players in free agency?

BY foxsports • June 18, 2015

Yet again, the Dallas Mavericks are faced with a difficult question this offseason.

Should the team go young in free agency and build for the future, or sign veteran players to play alongside Dirk Nowitzki in the twilight of his career?

The Mavericks should have plenty of cap room and decisions to make this offseason, as most of the roster is eligible for free agency.

Here's more from Vytis Lasaitis at Bleacher Report

"The clock is ticking on Nowitzki, who will soon be 37. He is still a supremely competent offensive weapon for his age, and Dallas has to do its best to add talent around him.  

That essentially eliminates the possibility of adding younger players and allowing the group to grow. 

The Mavs have to once again throw random ingredients together in a pot, hoping that Carlisle can make things click immediately. It's not fair to the coach or the players, but that's the reality. If Dallas strikes out on the big names, more familiar faces from last year may return. It would ease the transition into next year, but the Mavericks will still need to make some kind of a major splash to spring back to relevance."
