The Dallas Mavericks continue to search for ways to improve their roster. They officially signed Frank Ntilikina on Sept. 16 to give their bench and perimeter defense a boost. The Mavs entered the offseason hoping to land a marquee free agent but were forced to settle for adding Reggie Bullock and Sterling Brown. Dallas improved their roster this offseason, despite it not being the ideal summer.

They are still searching for upgrades, and the rumors keep pouring out. Fans have heard plenty of Goran Dragic chatter in recent weeks, but it does not appear the Raptors are eager to buy him out. Will Dallas make another move before opening night?

Fans love hypothetical trades, and the Mavs have been at the forefront of several recent deals. None of these are being discussed by the front office. They are just made-up deals as a way to improve both teams. Let us take a look at the latest to see if Dallas should make these hypothetical moves.

Pass or pursue on 5 Dallas Mavericks trade ideas before training camp

Kristaps Porzingis is the centerpiece of three of these five trades as his name continues to be mentioned following a poor playoff performance. The Mavericks need more from their second star, but they are not trading the Unicorn this offseason. New head coach Jason Kidd went to visit him in Latvia this summer and believes he can help KP return to his All-Star form.

The only player on the Dallas Mavericks roster that is untouchable is Luka Doncic, so should the organization pursue these five trades?
