Should the Dallas Mavericks trade for Kyle Lowry?

If Lowry becomes available, Donnie Nelson and the Mavs front office should be trying to acquire him. Yes, Dallas would love to add a younger third star that could grow with Luka and Kristaps Porzingis, but they do not have the assets to acquire one right now. That means the Mavericks have to build with two stars or find a way to snag a third one at a discount. Lowry’s age and expiring contract could present that opportunity.

He would immediately solve some of the team’s problems. Letting Lowry lead the second unit should take them from poor to above average in a minute. Toronto had an offensive rating of 111.9 with Lowry on the floor last season. He would make them a better defensive team, plus bring a strong leader and locker room presence to Dallas.

The Dallas Mavericks do not want to mortgage their bright future for a few months of Kyle Lowry, but acquiring him at the right price could push the team into serious title contention.

5 trades to upgrade the Mavericks bench. Next

Mavs fans should stay tuned. Expect the team to be active and aggressive in searching for upgrades before the March 25 trade deadline. It promises to bring plenty of excitement, so do not miss it.
