The Dallas Mavericks are a team that is expected to be active ahead of this week's trade deadline, and they need to make a move.


Dallas is 3-7 in their last 10 games, and the injuries just keep on coming.

Rumors: Dallas Mavericks show 'most' interest in trading for Warriors wing

The Mavs' inability to stay healthy has been detrimental over the last few weeks, and the backups have not been able to carry their weight enough for Dallas to win games.

It sounds like the Mavs' main focus is going to be upgrading at the power forward position, but they are also looking to upgrade on the wing as well. One wing that they have been linked to is Andrew Wiggins of the Golden State Warriors. Dallas has been among the favorites to trade for Wiggins since last month, but they could quickly become the favorites after a recent report from Matt Moore of Action Network.

Moore reported that the Mavs have shown the "most interest in Wiggins over the last two weeks." Dallas has shown more interest in Wiggins than any team in the league, and a trade could be on the way over the next few days.

This season for the Warriors, Wiggins is averaging 12.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 0.5 blocks per game while shooting 43.7 percent from the field and 31.1 percent from downtown. His efficiency and scoring numbers are way down this season, but a trade to Dallas could help his numbers rise back up.

Playing next to Luka Doncic would likely help unlock his full potential, and he is an excellent perimeter defender. He would become one of the best defenders on the Mavs, and his playoff experience is intriguing as well.

For all the latest on the Dallas Mavericks and their potential pursuit of Golden State Warriors wing Andrew Wiggins, stay tuned.
