The Dallas Mavericks have disappointed fans this offseason by not winning the summer. Jalen Brunson left in free agency, despite the Mavs making re-signing the 6’1 guard their top priority. Dallas did upgrade their frontcourt by trading for Christian Wood and signing JaVale McGee. The front office drafted Jaden Hardy and re-signed Theo Pinson, but that was the end of their offseason moves.

The Mavs were not mentioned in the latest rumors, which likely means they are done making moves this offseason, but should they be? They have a glaring need in the backcourt, and Dallas wants to build a title contender around Luka Doncic. The Mavericks need more talent, but they are not eager to go all-in on acquiring it.

The Indiana Pacers have Myles Turner on the trade block. It has been years of Turner trade rumors, but the deal never comes together. The 6’11 big man could be a fantastic fit in Dallas, so should the Mavericks acquire him? Here is a look at the fit, the asking price, and if the Mavs front office should make the deal.

Should the Dallas Mavericks trade for Myles Turner? Is he worth the price?

Turner was born in Bedford, Texas, so it would be a homecoming if he joined the Mavericks. Former Mavs head coach and current Pacers leader Rick Carlisle is a massive fan of the 6’11 big man, but Indiana is heading into a rebuild around Tyrese Haliburton. The Pacers would deal Myles Turner in the right trade, but can they find it?

Turner is a fit in Dallas, but there are concerns.
