Dallas Mavericks free agent target Kemba Walker is the best player the team will have a chance at convincing to come to Dallas according to Marc Stein.

Dallas Mavericks fans are dreaming about the offseason ahead. Thoughts of Luka Doncic improving to become a bona fide top-ten player in the NBA and Kristaps Porzingis returning to his All-Star form are present. The hope of the draft and free agency are ahead as well.

The Mavs need help in both areas this offseason. The lottery will determine if Dallas keeps their first-round selection. The Mavericks would have to move into the top four to retain it, or the pick heads to Atlanta as part of the Doncic trade. Adding a free agent is never easy. The Mavs have the cap space to offer a max deal, but they have to find the right player that is willing to sign.

One of the Dallas Mavericks primary targets this summer is Kemba Walker. Fans can read more about their interest here.

Here is the latest on Walker’s free agency.

Mavs have a real shot at Kemba

Marc Stein was a guest on the Ben and Skin show on 105.3 The Fan on May 2. He discussed all the latest Mavericks happenings. Fans can listen to Stein’s entire interview here.

Stein believes Kemba Walker is the best player Dallas could land this summer. He states that the Mavs will get a chance to convince him in free agency too. That won’t be the case with some of the big names. Dallas will likely be rebuffed quickly by the likes of Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and others.

Stein also discusses potential fit issues with Walker during the interview.

Mavericks fans should be excited about this rumor. Having a legitimate shot to land a three-time All-Star point guard is significant. It means Dallas is edging towards contention. Signing Walker could be enough to push the Mavs into the postseason in 2020.

Final thoughts

The Dallas Mavericks will have a chance to court Kemba Walker this summer. Free agency opens on July 1, and Walker should be the Mavs first call. Landing a point guard capable of averaging over 25 points per game would give the Mavericks a big three for the foreseeable future.

Rumors will be flying around everywhere in the coming months. It will be a fantastic time to be a fan of the Dallas Mavericks but do not believe all of them.
