(AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez)The Dallas Mavericks, a franchise that has played in six NBA Finals and one Western Conference finals, are poised to win the NBA lottery again in 2022.
After winning the NBA title in 2019, Dallas was forced to rebuild its roster.
But after adding the likes of Rudy Gobert and Chandler Parsons, they made the playoffs in the first round of the 2019 NBA playoffs.
The Mavericks also added Dirk Nowitzki in the draft.

They will need to get someone else, but it seems unlikely.
The NBA also is considering adding another player to the lottery, although there is no firm decision.

The Sacramento Kings are in the mix for the rights, and could also add another prospect.
The Atlanta Hawks are in talks with former Washington Wizards point guard John Wall about the possibility of moving to Atlanta.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are in a similar position.
The Timberwolves have two picks in the top five of the NBA draft, but they are expected not to select any player in the lottery.
The New York Giants, New Orleans Pelicans and Chicago Bulls have a good shot at grabbing the first overall pick, but none of them are likely to get there in 2022, the deadline for the 2018 and 2019 NBA drafts.
The Dallas/Fort Worth Mavericks, Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma city Thunder are all expected to go after the top overall selection.
The Denver Nuggets, Indiana Pacers and Charlotte Hornets are also expected to take a shot at the lottery with the teams that finish with the most wins.
The Charlotte Hornets and Denver Nuggets have the highest odds of getting the No. 1 pick, while the Oklahoma city Nuggets and Indiana Pacers are projected to take the No
