Crazy trade for Dallas Mavericks to land a second star to pair with Luka Doncic: 1. Convince LeBron
Could the Lakers head into a total rebuild this summer? Trading for Russell Westbrook hurt their on-court product and hamstrung their cap sheet. Having three max contract players makes it hard to find flexibility.
LeBron James seems happy in LA, but he left Miami and Cleveland after four years looking for a new challenge. He just finished his fourth season with the Lakers. Could King James be on the move? Fans know LeBron loves Luka, and this deal would make them teammates in Dallas.
No way LeBron ends up on the Mavericks this summer, but crazier things have happened in the NBA. Okay, maybe not, but unexpected trades happen every year. If James wants out of LA, he will select his next destination. Playing next to Luka Doncic is appealing, and the duo places the Mavs firmly in title contention.
The Dallas Mavericks are unlikely to land a second star this summer, but there are a ton of fun pairings with Luka Doncic to ponder. It is an important offseason. What will Nico Harrison and Mark Cuban do to improve the Mavs roster around Doncic? Stay tuned to find out.
