The Mavs are expected to push hard to fill the current hole at small forward, which is vacant due to Shawn Marion currently no longer under contract.. Outside of Deng, the team is reportedly interested in stars Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James and role player Trevor Ariza.
Mavs’ first face-to-face meeting tonight is owner Mark Cuban and his own point guard: Devin Harris

Harris originally signed a three-year deal last offseason, but a broken toe resulted in the deal breaking. He would sign a one-year minimum deal to return to Dallas. Raymond Felton and Gal Mekel are the only point guards signed on the current roster.
