On Friday night, the Dallas Mavericks dominated the LA Clippers.
Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving seemingly couldn't miss, and their offensive domination ultimately helped hand the Clippers their fourth-straight loss.
Although Luka's hot shooting night is what will be remembered from this game, Mavs GM Nico Harrison had an interview with Bally Sports Southwest and discussed an interesting tidbit that every fan should want to hear about.
Mavericks GM Nico Harrison reveals type of player Dallas wants to trade for
When asked about what kind of player Dallas would be looking to trade for, Harrison gave a vague answer, but his answer should excite fans as this type of player is definitely someone that Dallas needs.
Harrison stressed that it's still very early, but said the type of player that he would bring in is someone who plays with physicality, and "rebounding is always a plus."
He also said that he wants to wait until about 20 games into the season to make that type of decision on what Dallas should do, but adding a player with size that plays with physicality and rebounds is something that would tremendously strengthen Dallas' roster.
Dallas' bench lacks physicality, and they still haven't rebounded the best. This type of player is exactly what they need. They need someone who can protect the rim while Lively II is on the bench and play with some physicality in the paint.
Dallas clearly missed Lively II in their loss to the Raptors, and if they can add someone who can help lessen the blow when he is on the bench, that would be ideal.
The Mavs could also elect to trade for more wing depth, giving them someone else who can guard multiple positions and play alongside Doncic and Kyrie Irving.
Dallas always seems to be making a move at the deadline, and this comment from Harrison shows that this team isn't done making moves. Harrison always wants to get better (subscription required), and that's no different after the hot start.
For all the latest on Nico Harrison, Kyrie Irving, Luka Doncic, and the Dallas Mavericks this season, stay tuned.
