This season has been very up-and-down for the Dallas Mavericks and it does not seem like things are going to be getting any better. Luka Doncic is one of the best overall talents in the NBA and is very much in the discussion for league MVP, but outside of him, this team does not have much production.
The return of Kristaps Porzingis after recovering from a knee injury was much needed, but it does not seem like he is 100% out there on the court yet. With Porzingis not his true All-Star self yet and the Mavericks as a team really struggling, they are going to need to look to make a big move near the trade deadline if they want to have any shot of reaching their full potential this year.
Buddy Hield is an interesting name that keeps popping up in NBA trade rumors lately and while there have been no talks between the Mavericks and Kings, Hield could be a player that draws a lot of interest around the NBA trade deadline.
Last year, there were some discussions of the Kings wanting to trade Buddy Hield because of negativity he was causing within the organization and disagreement he would cause between other players and the coaching staff, but nothing ever materialized and it seemed like the two sides hashed things out in the offseason.
Nonetheless, there is still some tension between the Kings and Hield and it could erupt at any moment. Seeing as the Kings are playing really well right now and are very much in the playoff conversation in the Western Conference, they may hold off on making any deals for their key players, but the Mavericks should be very persistent in their push for Buddy Hield.
With that said, let’s take a look at three reasons why the Dallas Mavericks should go all-out in order to acquire Buddy Hield.
