Dallas Mavericks need cohesion to keep Luka Doncic long-term

The most worry-inducing part of The Athletic’s story was the front office issues in Dallas. There appear to be questions about who is making the moves and what transactions should be made. The Mavs must clean up the front office to keep Luka long-term.

They need to form a unified front with everyone in the same boat and rowing in the same direction. Do the Mavericks have that right now? Will they have it when making moves in arguably the most important offseason in franchise history? Those are questions fans might not know the answers to and that is scary.

Owner Mark Cuban has the final say in all decisions. He needs to get the front office and power structure sorted out before the NBA Playoffs end in July.

The Mavs need cohesion throughout the organization if they want to keep Luka Doncic in Dallas for his entire NBA career. It takes a united front to win a championship. The Mavericks are also going to have to make some bold moves to jump up the standings. That will be difficult to do if everyone is not on the same page.

The organization knows how to keep a superstar. They can do it with Luka too, but it will take a total team effort.
