As much as I and some others love the idea of Larry Sanders in a Dallas Mavericks uniform, it seems the Mavs aren’t as sold on the idea.
Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News,
From what I’m hearing, the Bucks don’t want to deal him because they know they’d be selling low. And I don’t believe the Mavericks are infatuated with the troubled big man. Plus, is he going to come in and take minutes away from Dalembert or Blair or Wright? Probably so. And that might be a complicated mix to make happen. If it required a transition period (read: unexpected losses), it’s not worth it.
With Sanders having a down season, it makes sense for the Milwaukee Bucks to hang onto him and try to trade him during the offseason.
Also, the best the Mavs can offer the Bucks would be cap relief and young guards Shane Larkin and Ricky Ledo.
The Mavs have had a history of striking out on highly paid centers.
Do the names Eric Dampier, Brendan Haywood, and Chris Kaman ring a bell?
This may be an avenue the Mavs should rightfully avoid.
