Dallas Mavericks: Best and worst case scenarios at the trade deadline
By Tyler Watts
Dallas Mavericks fans are hoping for a move before Feb. 6. Here is a look at the best and worst case for the organization at the trade deadline.
The Dallas Mavericks secured their 30th win of the season on Feb. 1 against the Hawks. It was an impressive blowout for the Mavs. They played without both Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis and still managed a 23-point victory. Two years ago, they did not even win 30 games all season.
The team is skilled. They have won three of the six games Luka has missed this season. The Mavericks secured eight victories in the 12 games with Porzingis sidelined. They have depth and one of the best offenses in the NBA no matter the personnel in the lineup.
The Mavs are a lock to make the playoffs. It will be their first time since 2016. They love their group of players, but that has not stopped them from searching for upgrades ahead of the Feb. 6 trade deadline. Dallas wants to advance past the first round of the postseason for the first time since they won the championship in 2011.
The front office has identified a weakness on the wing and is looking to fill that void before Thursday at 3 p.m. ET. The Mavericks are never afraid to make a massive move. One may not be available, but expect them to have offers out on everyone.
Here is a look at the scenarios for the Dallas Mavericks at the trade deadline.
