Ball-handler Dallas Mavericks could acquire right now: 1. DeMar DeRozan

The Bulls have lost four straight and six of their last seven to fall three games out of sixth already. Lonzo Ball is out for an extened period, and the Bulls could look to blow it up before the trade deadline. If they do, DeRozan may be the best player available as the 33-year-old has been phenomenal again for the Bulls.

The five-time All-Star would look fantastic next to Luka Doncic in Dallas. He has scored over 20 points per game for a decade straight, and the 6’6 wing adds in five rebounds and five assists per game. He is a mid-range master, who is comfortable with the ball in his hands or finding ways to attack off secondary action.

DeRozan wants to win a championship, and the Mavericks are locked in on building a contender around Luka Doncic. Adding a five-time All-Star that drops 20 every night, can handle the ball, and just flat-out gets buckets sounds exciting. He would be the best co-star Docic has had during his NBA career, and the Mavs were just in the conference finals last season.
