Powell continued to progress during his third year in Dallas, averaging a career-high 17.3 minutes as a key reserve in the frontcourt. For the most part, he was stuck behind Dirk Nowitzki and Harrison Barnes at the power forward spot, although he occasionally helped out as a small-ball center. He finished the season averaging 6.7 points and 4.0 rebounds, while shooting 51.5 percent from the field. That translated to a slight increase in his scoring totals, but he failed to progress as a three-point shooter and still remains somewhat limited offensively. With the Mavericks bringing back nearly everyone in the frontcourt from a year ago, Powell's role isn't expected to change much. Dirk Nowitzki is only getting older and could have his workload scaled back, although that shouldn't result in any drastic changes for Powell. He'll likely remain one of the top reserves at both power forward and center, but that still only affords him minutes in the upper-teens or low-20's on most nights. For that reason, Powell's Fantasy upside will continue to be nearly non-existent in anything but the deepest of leagues.

  2. Dwight Powell 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    In his second NBA season, Powell emerged as a consistent role player off the bench, averaging 5.8 points and 4.0 rebounds in 14.4 minutes per game. The Mavericks rewarded the 25-year-old with a four-year, $37 million contract in the offseason, essentially offering a vote of confidence in him as a building block for the future. Powell is expected to step into a larger role in 2016-17, but he'll still be stuck behind veteran Dirk Nowitzki at the power forward spot. Nowitzki's production has yet to drop off, and until that happens, Powell may have a difficult time carving out high-end minutes. However, if Nowitzki finally regresses this season or sustains an injury, Powell's fantasy stock would increase significantly.
  3. Dwight Powell 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    The 24-year-old Powell joined the Mavericks mid-season as a part of the failed Rajon Rondo trade. After appearing in just five games with Boston, Powell appeared in 24 games with Dallas and made regular appearances for the team's D-League affiliate. Overall, he averaged 3.1 points, 1.7 rebounds, 0.3 assists, and 0.2 blocks per game in 10 minutes of playing time in his rookie season. Powell finished the year shooting a respectable 46 percent from the field and 76 percent from the free-throw line. He did turn some heads this summer as he was named to the All-NBA Summer League Second Team after averaging 18.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.0 steal in six starts for Dallas' summer league squad. Powell also joined the Canadian National Team over the summer, gaining valuable experience off the bench. He remains a project in his second season in the league, and the Mavericks have encouraged him to extend his range to earn an increased role in the system. Powell should see a bump in minutes with Dallas' depth behind Dirk Nowitzki looking a bit thin.
  4. Dwight Powell 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    Dwight Powell was the taken with the 45th pick overall by the Charlotte Hornets in the 2014 NBA Draft. He was subsequently traded to Cleveland along with Brendan Haywood for Scotty Hopson and cash. The 23-year-old power forward spent four years with the Stanford Cardinal where he led the team in scoring as a junior with 15 points per game and was second on the team last year at 14 points. Powell has a nicely diversified game and can score in a variety of ways. His range didn't extend well to three-point land in college, and he was only 10-of-39 (26 percent) on three-pointers as a senior. He had four double-doubles in 2013-14 and scored 28 points (Nov. 11 against BYU and Feb. 1 vs. Arizona State). As competition got stiffer, fouls became a problem for Powell. In the last four games of the season, he accrued four fouls in each game and fouled out of the win over New Mexico in the NCAA tournament with just three points. The Canadian will join fellow countryman Tristan Thompson in the Cavaliers' frontcourt but will likely spend the majority of his season in the D-League with the Canton Charge.
