Dallas Mavericks with the most trade value: 1. Luka Doncic
There is not a trade in the NBA that could pry Luka away from Dallas. The 22-year-old is already a top-five player and well on his way to being the face of the league. He has earned first-team All-NBA honors twice and continues to break records on a nightly basis. Doncic is on pace to go down as one of the greatest of all time.
Luka is extension eligible this summer. The Mavs are going to offer him a max deal worth north of $200 million. Expect Doncic to accept, but the clocking will be ticking for the front office. The 22-year-old superstar wants to win and now. Dallas must improve the roster around him and jump into title contention.
Luka is untouchable. Even if he decides to decline his extension this summer, the Mavericks can make him a restricted free agent in the 2022 offseason. They will match any deal and can have Doncic under contract for five more seasons. Fans should not worry about him being in Dallas in the short term, but the Mavs are going to have to win to keep him.
