The Mavericks will likely follow a timeline on how they structure each signing by using up to the $6M in available cap space to sign Dirk Nowitzki ($5M team option was declined in June to create room) first. Once Nowitzki is signed, Dallas will exceed the cap by signing Yogi Ferrell (early bird rights), Ryan Broekhoff (minimum exception) and Salah Mejri (minimum exception). The Mavericks will have the $4.4 million room midlevel exception still available to use with 14 guaranteed contracts.
