The Dallas Mavericks inked Luka Doncic to a historic five-year contract extension this offseason that does not allow him to become a free agent until 2026. The 22-year-old has a $47.1 million player option for the 2026-2027 season as the Mavs have their superstar locked up long-term.
Now, the front office needs to build a title contender around him. Luka was incredible in the playoffs last year, but Dallas was knocked out in the opening round by the LA Clippers. The Mavs improved their floor spacing, wing depth, and perimeter defense this summer by signing Reggie Bullock and Sterling Brown. Training camp is less than two weeks away, but Dallas is still trying to find upgrades because the organization is committed to building a winner around Luka.
Doncic has made first-team All-NBA for two straight seasons after winning Rookie of the Year. What can the 22-year-old accomplish in his fourth NBA campaign? Here is a look at five goals for the Mavericks superstar.

Luka has made significant improvements every year. He produced historic numbers as a rookie but came back with a new array of left-handed finishes around the rim to increase his shooting efficiency in year two. Last season, Doncic improved his jumper, added a deadly mid-range game to make him an unstoppable offensive force, and upped his defense. The 6’7 guard will add something new this year too.
New head coach Jason Kidd will be looking to take Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks to the next level. Here are five goals for the team’s superstar this season.
