The Dallas Mavericks shouldn't even entertain signing Draymond Green, especially if he wants more than $25 million a year. Not only is he getting up there in age, but he is also a guy that wouldn't fit with the Mavericks schematically.

Entering his age 32 season, he will likely want a long terms deal, as it will almost certainly be his last chance to get paid some big money. The Mavericks shouldn't go anywhere near that.

Green's success with the Golden State Warriors scheme has been predicated on everything he does well with two of the greatest shooters ever to walk this earth on his team. How do we know that will transfer over to a team without Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson?

We don't.

There is also one big thing we're leaving out. Mark Cuban, the Mavericks owner, hates the Golden State Warriors. So much so that he denied a contestant on Shark Tank because of it.

The simple fact that Green played on the Warriors may turn Cuban away from the idea. They beat the Mavericks in the Western Conference Finals just two short years ago.

The Mavericks shouldn't go after Green. There are more reasons against the idea than there are for it. This upcoming season is crucial for Dallas, and they have much bigger needs than everything Green would potentially bring to the table.
