The Dallas Mavericks are facing the most important offseason in franchise history. They signed Nico Harrison as general manager to replace Donnie Nelson, who left after 24 years in Dallas. Jason Kidd is taking over as head coach after Rick Carlisle resigned. Now, the Mavs brass needs to improve the roster around Luka Doncic. They can create cap space and have a plethora of important decision to make in the weeks ahead.

Doncic is back in Slovenia playing for his national team. They are gearing up for the Lithuanian Olympic Qualifying tournament. Slovenia faces Angola in their first game on June 30. Luka and his countrymen will have to win the six-team tournament to advance to the Olympics in July. With the Mavericks superstar leading the way, Slovenia is among the favorites to play in Tokyo.

The Slovenian National Team is getting ready, but already Luka Doncic has it locked in. He used his incredible skill to force teammate Edo Muric into a priceless reaction. Let us take a closer look.

Muric decided to face Luka one-on-one. The Mavs star drilled a step back 3-pointer, so the defender pushed up on Doncic. The second he backed off, Luka stepped back for another triple forcing Muric into a priceless reaction. See the video and the 22-year-old’s take on Twitter below.

Luka is ready for the Olympic Qualifying Tournament. He had ten points, 17 rebounds, and seven assists in Slovenia’s win over Croatia in a friendly. They are looking to qualify for the Olympics for the first time. Expect Luka Doncic to be at the top of his game in Lithuania.

Fans should stay locked in on the Dallas Mavericks. Luka is not the only player competing this week in the Olympic Qualifying Tournaments around the world. Boban Marjanovic, Dwight Powell, and Nicolo Melli will also be taking part for their countries. The Mavs will be looking to build out their roster too.
