What are the odds Nikola Jokic joins Luka Doncic on the Dallas Mavericks?
Jokic is the Nuggets superstar and one of the best players in the NBA. The 6’11 big man is a unique talent, and the best passing big man in the league right now. He won the MVP in 2021 and has already played in seven playoff series. There is no reason for the Joker to leave Denver, but that has not stopped superstars from wanting out.
Will Nikola Jokic leave Denver and want to come to Dallas to play with Luka Doncic? That is a personal choice that the 27-year-old will have to make over the next 18 months. It is possible, but not likely.
Odds Nikola Jokic joins Luka Doncic on the Dallas Mavericks: 5 percent
There are scenarios in the infinite universe where Jokic comes to Dallas, but it would take a special set of circumstances. It was awesome seeing Luka and the reigning MVP having fun together during All-Star weekend. Fans saw their friendship on full display in Cleveland, and Doncic even described it as his “least favorite part”.
Every year at least one superstar player switches teams. Will Nikola Jokic be next on that list? Does he choose to join the Dallas Mavericks? It is a fun what-if to think about if nothing else, and who knows what will happen over the next 18 months.
