Dallas Mavericks 2023 New Year’s Resolution: 1. Acquire a second star
The biggest goal of this year should be acquiring a second star that makes the Mavericks a true title contender. They have Batman, but now the front office must acquire his Robin. Luka Doncic is one of the best players in the world right now, but the Mavs do not have another top-50 player. Acquiring one could instantly vault Dallas into the title race and makes them a feared opponent for every team in the league.
This will likely have to wait until the offseason because the Mavericks still owe one first-round pick to the Knicks from the original Kristaps Porzingis trade. It will convey in the 2023 draft unless the Mavs fall into the lottery and secure a top ten selection. Dallas expects to give up the pick this year, and that will leave them with all their future first-round picks available to trade after draft night.
Can the Mavericks find an All-Star that is worth giving up a massive draft pick haul for this summer? Who is the next superstar to request a trade? Will Dallas be able to swing the deal to acquire that player? There are tons of questions, but the Mavs should be doing everything they can to land Luka a co-star.
The Dallas Mavericks are expecting massive things in 2023, including another deep playoff run. Will it happen? What will Luka Doncic do next? Be sure to tune in to find out.
