Odds the Dallas Mavericks acquire Kawhi Leonard this offseason?

Leonard holds all the cards here. Expect him to decline his player option and hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent. Where he decides to sign his next contract is up to him. If Kawhi chooses a team lacking cap space, they can acquire him via a sign-and-trade. The Heat did just that to get Jimmy Butler in 2019.

Where will the Mavericks stand in Kawhi’s mind? Does he want to play with Luka Doncic in Dallas? Leonard’s preference appears to be staying in Los Angeles. Could his latest injury change that? Time will certainly tell.

Odds the Dallas Mavericks can acquire Kawhi Leonard this offseason: 5 percent

The odds are set here in early July. The Mavericks and Heat both have about a five percent chance of acquiring Leonard. LA sits at 85 percent to retain his services. The remaining five percent is split between the other teams in the mix to acquire the two-time Finals MVP.

Next. 3 trades for the Mavs to acquire Damian Lillard

Dallas Mavericks supporters will be dreaming of signing Kawhi Leonard this offseason. Does it become a reality? Stay tuned for what figures to be a wild and exciting summer in the NBA. The Mavs will be trying to improve their roster, so do not miss a second of the action.
