Dallas Mavericks: Can they trade for Jrue Holiday? Will the Mavs?
The Dallas Mavericks will be looking to make improvements this offseason. Luka Doncic led them to seventh in the Western Conference and their first playoff appearance since 2016 this season as he jumped into the MVP conversation. The 21-year-old will be looking to take another leap as the Mavs try to move into title contention in 2021.
Dallas will need both internal growth and to add pieces to their roster. Fans should expect to see the best versions of Luka, Kristaps Porzingis, and many of the Mavericks role players in 2021. They will use their mid-level exception and explore the trade market for upgrades that help them vault up the standings too. The front office will have the difficult task of making the pieces fit, but Donnie Nelson and company are up to the task.
Jrue Holiday is one player rumored to be on the trade block. The former All-Star will be sought after, but could he end up with the Mavs?
Are the Dallas Mavericks interested in Jrue Holiday? Will they trade for him this offseason?

New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday could be at the top of their wish list. Let us examine the fit and a hypothetical trade before setting the odds on the Dallas Mavericks trading for Holiday this offseason.
