Bobby Marks: The move to acquire Doug McDermott does not impact the Mavericks cap flexibility this summer. McDermott in the last year of his contract has a cap hit of $3.3M and will be a restricted free agent in July. The qualifying offer for McDermott is $4.5M if the Mavericks elect to tender him the offer. The small forward will have a $9.8M cap hold that will count against the cap.
