Our roundtable gives bold Mavericks offseason predictions

Hal Brown (@HalBrownNBA): As the resident team pessimist: I think they swing for the fences on free agents again, miss, and are at best fighting for a playoff spot next season. Sorry, I know I'm the worst. I just can't get rid of a bad, sinking feeling about this offseason. Bailey Rogers (@BRogers789): The best move Dallas makes this offseason is re-signing Al-Farouq Aminu ......

Rumor: Boston Celtics could have their eye on Al-Farouq Aminu

Another name to keep an eye on in free agency We expect that the Boston Celtics will be active in free agency this summer, so here's one more name to keep an eye on. According to CSNNE.com's A. Sherrod Blakely, the Celtics are among the teams interested in forward Al-Farouq Aminu. Aminu is expected to turn down his player option with the Dallas Mavericks. While there seems to be mutual interest in keeping him in Dallas, Aminu will keep his options open by testing free agency.
