Dallas Mavericks: 5 reasons why they sign Giannis Antetokounmpo in 2021

The Dallas Mavericks were bounced in the first round of the playoffs by the LA Clippers, but there were plenty of positives to take away from the series. Luka Doncic proved his superstar status. The Mavs won two games including one without Kristaps Porzingis. They are a team on the rise.

The Mavs won’t be happy with a first-round exit anymore. It was a positive first playoff experience for their star duo, but expectations are about to increase. Luka let fans know his goal for next season already.

The front office will be looking to improve the roster. The Mavericks could have a max cap slot available in 2021. They are hoping to preserve that space to chase one of the many “big fish” that will be available. The prize of the class is Giannis Antetokounmpo. The MVP could be looking to leave the Bucks in order to win a ring. Dallas may be the perfect landing spot.

5 reasons why the Dallas Mavericks will sign Giannis Antetokounmpo in 2021

Giannis may be the best player in the NBA right now. He won the MVP in 2019 and is favored to take home his second in 2020. Antetokounmpo won Defensive Player of the Year this season too. The 25-year-old is elite on both ends of the floor.

The Milwaukee Bucks had the best regular-season record in each of the last two seasons, but have not gotten over the hump. They were eliminated in the Eastern Conference Finals last season. The Bucks lost the first two games to the Miami Heat in the second round inside the Orlando bubble. Could that mean the Greek Freak leaves Milwaukee?

Here are five reasons why Giannis Antetokounmpo joins the Dallas Mavericks in 2021.
