The Dallas Mavericks need to improve their roster around superstar Luka Doncic. They reached the conference finals last season, but Dallas does not have enough talent to be in the upper echelon of title contenders. The Mavs are searching for another playmaker and an upgrade at the five, but the front office ultimately just wants to improve their roster.

Bojan Bogdanovic figures to be one of the most talked about names before February’s trade deadline. The Pistons are back at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings, and Cade Cunningham is having season-ending shin surgery. Detroit agreed to a two-year extension with Bogdanovic, but rival teams are interested and eager to acquire the talented forward.

HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto wrote about the latest rumors where he named the Mavericks as one of four teams interested in Bogdanovic, but that came with an interesting tidbit of information.

Scotto notes the Mavs interest before mentioning that the Pistons have not shown interest in dealing the veteran forward. He has been a fantastic locker-room presence, and Bogdanovic is the 3-and-D player that every contending team needs. He can score, make shots, and defend on the perimeter. Will Detroit soften its trade stance before the deadline? Anything can happen, so stay tuned for the latest.

Bogdanovic could be on the move ahead for the trade deadline. The Utah Jazz traded him to Detroit in the offseason. Does Detroit keep him or look to sell high?

Bogdanovic is averaging 21.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.4 assists in 30.9 minutes per game. He is shooting 50.8 percent from the field and making 43.7 percent of his 3-point tries. The 33-year-old plays stout defense while being able to space the floor and score. Bogey can help any contender. Do the Dallas Mavericks acquire him? Stay tuned to find out.
