The Dallas Mavericks are currently making their presence felt in the 2019-20 NBA season, thanks to Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. However, the team is unlikely to be contented just being an average playoff contender in the deep Western Conference. Though they failed in their attempts to bring big pieces to Dallas before the February 6 trade deadline, rumors are currently circulating that the Mavericks are once again expected to be active in the trade market in the 2020 offseason.
According to Tyler Watts of Fansided's The Smoking Cuban, the "ideal scenario" for the Mavericks in the summer of 2020 is to turn their picks in the 2020 NBA Draft into a "third star."
"The Dallas Mavericks are projected to pick 20th and 31st according to Tankathon. Their ideal scenario may be packaging those two selections plus other pieces and trading for a third star. It would eliminate the Mavs from the 2021 free agent sweepstakes which could feature Giannis Antetokounmpo, LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard and a host of other All-Stars. The Mavericks would already have their third piece, though. Finding the right trade partner would be key. They do not want to sacrifice too much of their depth to grab another top tier talent."
