Dallas Mavericks rumors: Team interested in Jrue Holiday, Victor Oladipo, and Spencer Dinwiddie
The Dallas Mavericks plan on getting aggressive this offseason. They want a third star to pair with Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis and are reportedly willing to do what it takes to make a trade happen.
The Mavs have assets to move. They have reportedly made every player not named Luka or KP available. The team also has two draft picks in the top 31 of the 2020 NBA Draft. Dallas may have to get creative to add a third star including taking back some unwanted salary, but jumping into title contention is worth it.
The Mavs rumors came out hot and heavy on Nov. 10. Let us take a closer look at the latest.
Dallas Mavericks rumored to be interested in Jrue Holiday, Victor Oladipo, and Spencer Dinwiddie
Matt Moore of the Action Network reported that Dallas is targeting Jrue Holiday, Victor Oladipo, and Spencer Dinwiddie via trade this offseason. The Mavericks are notoriously tight-lipped, so believe this one if you wish.
Their interest makes sense. Any of the three players give them a quality guard as their third star. Fans can read about Oladipo’s fit with the Mavericks here. Moore notes Dallas would prefer to trade for Holiday, but Oladipo and Dinwiddie are backup options. The Pelicans guard is the perimeter defender Dallas needs to leap into title contention. Oladipo was one during his last healthy season, and Dinwiddie is one of the most underrated guards in the league.
Expect plenty more Mavericks rumors in the days ahead. The offseason is almost here, and Dallas plans to be active. They will upgrade their roster, even if they fail to nab a third star.
