The 1993-94 NBA season was the Mavericks' 14th season in the National Basketball Association. Despite the addition of Kentucky star Jamal Mashburn from the 1993 NBA draft, and second-year star Jim Jackson playing in his first full season, the Mavericks' misery continued under new head coach Quinn Buckner losing 23 of their first 24 games, including a 20-game losing streak. They then suffered a 16-game losing streak (which led to a 2–39 record) on their way to a miserable 3–40 record at the end of January. At midseason, they traded longtime Dallas guard Derek Harper to the New York Knicks for Tony Campbell, while signing free agent Lorenzo Williams. The Mavericks continued to struggle losing seventeen consecutive games, but would post a 5–8 record in April. They won their final two games finishing last place in the Midwest Division with a record of 13–69, narrowly missing out on back-to-back 70-loss seasons.


Following the season, Buckner was fired as coach, Sean Rooks was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves, and Campbell and Fat Lever were both released as Campbell signed as a free agent with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Lever retired.
