Dallas Mavericks get Victor Oladipo in a hypothetical deal: Should they do it?
The Dallas Mavericks will be searching for roster upgrades this offseason. They are fresh off a promising campaign where Luka Doncic led them to the playoffs as he vaulted into the MVP conversation. The Mavs plan to build on that by jumping into title contention in 2021.
They will need to add a few pieces to make that a reality. Dallas had the best offense in the NBA but finished 18th in defensive rating. They must improve there to make the jump including grabbing a player that can guard the league’s elite scorers. The Mavs should get some internal growth, but adding a defensive stopper with the ability to shoot is a massive key.
Victor Oladipo is a player that could be on the trade block this offseason. Reports suggest he wants out of Indiana, and the Pacers may need to shed salary. Could the Mavs add Oladipo as their third star? Does the 28-year-old fit that bill?
