Rumors: Dallas Mavericks eyeing John Collins
Multiple sources have linked the Mavs with Collins again. Atlanta already traded Cam Reddish, and general manager Travis Schlenk was not shy in talking about the Hawks looking for ways to upgrade their roster. Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer reported via a source that their entire roster, except for Trae Young and Clint Capela is available.
The Mavericks have been linked to Collins for years as they look for a stretch big man that can score, rebound, and protect the rim. The 24-year-old is under contract until 2025, and he could form a dynamic duo with Luka Doncic in Dallas for years to come.
If the Hawks decide to move John Collins, will the Dallas Mavericks win the bidding war? It seems unlikely given Atlanta’s desire to improve their roster and stay competitive, but it is a situation to watch. The Mavs want another stretch big man, and Collins is one of the most talented players in the league.
Trade rumors are just starting to heat up, and there will be plenty more as deals begin to be made. Dallas Mavericks fans should stay locked into The Smoking Cuban between now and the Feb. 10 deadline for all the latest, plus analysis on every move.
