Dallas Mavericks

Luka Doncic is a true MVP candidate and Kristaps Porzingis is a terrific second-hand-man for Luka, but outside of these two guys, the Mavs really struggle to find production. The Dallas Mavericks really need that third, All-Star caliber option to be true title threats, which is why getting Domantas Sabonis would be huge for them. 

Porzingis and Sabonis both have the ability to play the power-forward position and with the both of them in the frontcourt, the Mavericks would have the best frontcourt in the NBA and it would not be close. By making this trade, the Mavs would solidify themselves as one of the teams to beat in the West, but the only question is how could they make this deal work? 

The Mavericks will already have about $20M in cap space entering the offseason, but the Mavs would likely have to be willing to part with key contributors in Dorian Finney-Smith, Jalen Brunson and possibly even Josh Richardson. Not to mention, the Mavericks would have to give up a solid amount of draft compensation to get Sabonis.

Having Luka Doncic, Kristaps Porzingis and Domantas Sabonis would be a dream trio for the Dallas Mavericks, but is this move worth giving up a vast majority of your secondary talent? Quite honestly, I believe the answer is yes and if the Pacers are willing to trade Sabonis in the offseason, the Mavericks should offer up anything in return to get him. 

It is not often that teams have a chance to pair three current All-Star talents together in their primes and given how great of a talent Luka Doncic is, these three guys together could make up one could be the best trio in the league and that is saying something given the talent on the Nets, Bucks and 76ers.
