Al-Farouq Aminu preview: a key piece in Dallas' revamped defense?

Looking at what new small forward Al-Farouq Aminu brings to Dallas. Chandler Parsons and his abs were the biggest signing of Dallas' offseason and arguably the biggest signing in the West. But according to Mark Cuban, the first call he made this summer was to former Pelicans small forward Al-Farouq Aminu. Looking Back at Last Year Last season was the 23 year-old Aminu's final year on his rookie contract, and at the end of the season he became an unrestricted free agent.

Jae Crowder preview: Can Crowder improve and continue to earn minutes?

Jae Crowder looks to fulfill those predictions from the scouting reports in his third NBA season. A little over a month ago I auditioned for the esteemed position of Mavs Moneyball contributor with a post about Jae Crowder and covered his college history, expectations and disappointments.

DALLAS – Coach Rick Carlisle refused to grant a preseason exemption to his rule about not revealing his starting lineup until the NBA-mandated 16 minutes for tip-off. So we don’t know for certain who will replace Dirk Nowitzki, who is nursing a minor hip injury, as the Dallas Mavericks starting power forward for Tuesday night’s preseason opener against the Houston Rockets. Well, here’s a hint: Al-Farouq Aminu wore a white jersey as shootaround along with the Mavs’ surefire starters.

Can Mavs make Al-Farouq Aminu a defensive stopper?

DALLAS – Tyson Chandler has one piece of advice for Al-Farouq Aminu, his young new teammate with the Dallas Mavericks: Study all the tape you can find of Scottie Pippen playing defense. That’s the kind of potential the Mavs see in the 24-year-old Aminu on that end of the floor. “I think he can do a lot of those same things,” Chandler said. “He’s an incredible athlete.” Aminu, a former eighth overall pick who signed with the Mavs for the veteran’s minimum this summer, unquestionably has all the physical attributes to excel as a defender in the NBA.
