Mavericks also looking to move to Abu Dhabi with Luka Doncic

An international-led team, with star Luka Doncic as one of the big contenders, intends to play two friendlies outside the United States next year. Journalist Mark Stein has recently assured that the idea is to take them to Abu Dhabi for one of those two games. The idea is to set up two matches, one of them in the capital of the United Arab Emirates and the other against Real Madrid.

Nothing is official, but there have been talks to make it possible. Franchise owner Mark Cuban is in charge of the operation to get his player back to Europe even for a day. A game in Slovenia’s capital, Ljubljana, is another option, but Abu Dhabi has emerged as an economically viable option for the NBA and it is going to try to take advantage of that.
