The Dallas Mavericks are fifth in the West with a record of 24 wins and 21 losses. They are two and a half games away from third place and one and a half games away from seventh. A good position on paper, similar to the previous season in which they finished fourth in the regular season and reached the conference finals, losing 4–1 to future champions, the Warriors. But as you delve deeper, you see obvious problems with the game and the squad’s preparation. And there, later on, the problem could become drama if Tim McMahon’s information from ESPN is correct and the franchise doesn’t know how to resolve it.
A journalist specializing in Mavs information has released an article in which he assures that Luka Doncic, for the first time since his arrival in Texas, “has clearly indicated that he wants the Mavs out by the time the market closes on February 9.” Improve the roster first.”. Until now, Doncic had not expressed himself publicly about the team’s playing policy and still does not. Privately, until it is known, it did not allow the players to join. And the departure didn’t affect. But the Slovenian must be seeing something he doesn’t like as he has taken action. He doesn’t want to wait any longer and force the franchise to move in this February market is so that the team can now compete as much as possible.
McMahon published just a few weeks ago that the feeling within the Mavs is that they have a two-year window until the summer of 2025 to convince Luca that they can build a winning team around him. The Slovenian could go on the market in 2026 and before that happens, if the Mavs believe or know he doesn’t want to continue in Dallas, they will seek a transfer last year. In fact, beyond the Slovenian, the rest of the squad doesn’t seem to be stepping up. As data, the record in games in which his star was not in his favor: very poor 0-5. It’s time to make amends. And according to Doncic, the sooner the better.
