After Tuesday night's loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, the Dallas Mavericks are sitting at 22-16 on the season and dropped to a 3-1 record on their seven-game homestand.
The Mavs are having a phenomenal season, but it seems as if they are looking to upgrade at the trade deadline.
Dallas is reportedly looking to upgrade at the power forward position, and this is a clear need for the squad.
15 Power forwards the Dallas Mavericks should trade for at trade deadline
Maxi Kleber has been out for several months with a dislocated toe, and Dallas' depth behind him at that position is limited. It's obvious that they need help in the frontcourt, and they have been in trade rumors for several elite fours.
Here are 15 power forwards that the Mavs could potentially trade for at the trade deadline.
15. Lauri Markkanen
The first player on this list is more of a pipe dream than any other player on this list, but he could be the missing piece to a future NBA Finals run if the Mavs found a way to make a move for him.
This season for the Utah Jazz, Markkanen is averaging 23.5 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.7 blocks per game while shooting 48.9 percent from the field and 38.6 percent from 3-point range.
Markkanen is the complete package at the power forward position, and him getting traded to the Mavs would form an elite big three with Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving.
He is a great shooter off the catch, and his ability to score in the low post is intriguing as well. His offensive game is as complete as they come for his position, and his positional size is something Dallas needs.
Standing at seven feet, Markkanen gives Dallas size, rebounding, and an elite ability to score the basketball.
Dallas may not have the assets to make this trade happen, but he is a dream target for this team.
