The Dallas Mavericks came into the season with hopes of becoming a staple in the postseason. They have dealt with some struggles this year and could look to make it up at the NBA trade deadline. They can do this by adding another elite player a deal such as this one.

Dallas already has one of the best players in the league in Luka Doncic. He is showing that he can get it done in many ways on the floor. The Mavericks know what they have which is why they added Kristaps Porzingis in a trade last year with the New York Knicks.

So far, the duo has made one postseason appearance and is looking for many more. Porzingis has dealt with injuries leaving Dallas shorthanded on many occasions. This is a chance for the team to add another star to lengthen the lineup.

The Mavericks could look to a team like the Orlando Magic. This is a team that came into the season in limbo. The Magic have been postseason team in each of the last two years but has been a low seed leading to an early exit.

They got off to a strong start this year but have since fallen off and are one of the worst teams in the Eastern Conference. This means we can start to see some players being sold at the NBA trade deadline. Evan Fournier is one of the most common names mentioned because he will be a free agent at the end of the season.

Fornia would benefit Dallas right away and could sign an extension. Let’s take a look at what it might take to get this deal done this week.
