Dallas Mavericks:

    Trevor Ariza is on the move for the third time this week, going to Oklahoma City from Detroit along with Dallas’ Justin Jackson in a three-team trade. Also in the deal, the Mavericks sent Delon Wright to the Pistons for James Johnson, a person with knowledge of the details said early Saturday. Ariza was sent from Portland to Houston two days before the draft, then shipped to the Pistons on draft night Wednesday. The 35-year-old has already played for 10 teams. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been announced. It was first reported by the New York Times. The Mavericks added Johnson to provide some toughness around young stars Luka...

    The Dallas Mavericks scooped Josh Richardson from the Philadelphia 76ers for Seth Curry. The Dallas Mavericks had the most elite offense in NBA history last season but badly needed defensive help on the wing. The Philadelphia 76ers had star-level talent but desperately needed more shooting and balance for their roster. As for the draft pick, Tyler Bey is another defensive-minded pickup. As a big man with a 7-foot-1 wingspan, he’s capable of defending positions 2-4 and possesses impressive athleticism to boot. Thanks to his length and agility, he’s worth the kind of free second-round flier that came from simply trading a good role player/shooter.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Daryl Morey’s busy night netted the Philadelphia 76ers yet another shooter. The Sixers on Wednesday night acquired guard Seth Curry from the Dallas Mavericks for Josh Richardson and the 32nd pick in the draft, a person with knowledge of the deal told the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because it had not been announced. Curry was one of the Maverick’s better 3-point shooters. Last season, Curry averaged 12.4 points in 64 games and shot 45.2% from 3-point range. He’s a career 44.3% shooter from beyond the arc. The 30-year-old is married to Callie Rivers, the daughter of Sixers head coach Doc Rivers, and the younger brother of Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry. The Sixers drafted...
    After one season in Palo Alto, Tyrell Terry is headed to Dallas. The Mavericks took the Stanford freshman with the first pick of the NBA draft’s second round, No. 31 overall. Terry averaged 14.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists in his freshman season with the Cardinal, earning All-Pac-12 honors. He shot 44.1% from the field and 40.8% from three-point range, giving NBA scouts hope he can stretch the floor. “Tyrell Terry can really shoot the basketball,” ESPN analyst Jay Bilas said of the selection. “That’s what really sets him apart.” But with concerns about his slight 6-foot-2 frame, Terry slid out of the first round. Terry put on some bulk in draft prep, but he...
    DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas Mavericks drafted Arizona guard Josh Green with the 18th pick in the first round Wednesday night, adding a backcourt mate for Luka Doncic as they continue to build around the 21-year-old sensation and fellow European star Kristaps Porzingis. Green has international roots as well, growing up in his native Australia before moving to the United States and playing high school basketball at IMG Academy in Florida. Green entered the draft after a pandemic-shortened freshman season at Arizona, where he averaged 12 points per game and shot 36% from 3-point range. The 6-foot-6 swingman was a defensive standout for the Wildcats, leading the team with 46 steals. Led by Doncic and Porzingis, the Mavericks made the...

After spending almost a full year away from basketball and staring down the barrel of retirement, Carmelo Anthony was given new life by the Portland Trail Blazers, as he instantly assumed a starting role and put up 15.4 points per game on a Blazers team that made it into the postseason. Now that Anthony has proven to the NBA world that he’s still capable of getting buckets in his advanced age, he could leverage that breakout season into a role as either a secondary scorer or veteran role player on a title team. These five teams need to be...
    During the 2020 Playoffs, Dallas Mavericks star Kristaps Porzingis suffered a knee injury in Game 1 against the LA Clippers. After going for surgery, Mavericks’ president Donnie Nelson has confirmed that Porzingis will miss the start of the 2020-21 season. “We’re going to make sure that that’s 100 percent before we put him out there. So that’s going to be into the season before we are able to have him join us,” Nelson said. So far in his career, Porzingis has had multiple bouts with injuries. Therefore, the Mavericks need him to get ample rest so that when he returns, he can play at his 100%. He is currently one of the most skilled big men in the league. Not...
    Here are five options for the Dallas Mavericks’ first pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Coming off Luka Doncic’s exhilarating first trip to the NBA playoffs, the Dallas Mavericks‘ main focus is building a contender around their future MVP. While free agency and the trade market will be key in coming seasons, that sense of urgency to find complementary talent extends to the upcoming 2020 NBA Draft. 5. Aleksej Pokusevski, forward, Olympiacos B, Big Board Rank: 19 Aleksej Pokusevski is a unique prospect in this year’s draft class, being a 7-footer whose fluidity helps him move like a wing and whose passing ability helps him play like a guard.

Porzingis hurt his right knee during the their opening-round playoff series against the Los Angeles Clippers last season, and underwent surgery to address “a lateral meniscus injury” in early October.  “He’s going to [return sometime] into the season," Nelson said, via the Dallas Morning News. "We’re very, very particular about...
    In the aftermath of rumors suggesting that the Dallas Mavericks might be interested in trading for Zach LaVine, a recent list of trade ideas suggested that the team could acquire the high-scoring Chicago Bulls guard for a package centered on Tim Hardaway Jr. According to Fansided’s Pippen Ain’t Easy, the main “problem” with hypothetical transactions involving LaVine and the Mavericks is not salary matching, but rather the lack of a “true valuable trade chip” that Dallas could offer Chicago in order to acquire the 25-year-old. As such, the publication pointed out that the Mavs would need to move some future draft picks to sweeten the deal — in this case, offering a package including Hardaway, the No. 18 pick in...
    The Dallas Mavericks want to add another star guard. As impressive as budding superstar Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks are, it’s become painfully clear that this roster doesn’t have a ton of game-changers outside of Kristaps Porzingis. Sensing that Dallas’ championship window is starting to creak open before Luka’s eventual mammoth contract extension limits them financially, the Mavericks are trying everything they can to get him one more star. Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer is reporting that the Mavericks are trying to go big-game hunting to find Luka a third star, contacting the Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers, and Brooklyn Nets about trades for guards Zach LaVine, Victor Oladipo, or Spencer Dinwiddie. The Mavericks are reportedly “chasing” Victor Oladpio, Zach...
    The Dallas Mavericks headed into the 2020 offseason with the goal of building a more competitive roster around franchise cornerstones Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. With their impressive performance in the 2019-20 NBA season, most people believe that the Mavericks are only one superstar away from being a legitimate title contender in the loaded Western Conference. Though the 2020 free agency won’t be as star-studded as the previous offseason, there are plenty of big names that the Mavericks could target on the trade market this fall. In his recent article, Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer named the top three offseason trade targets for the Mavericks. These include Zach LaVine of the Chicago Bulls, Victor Oladipo of the Indiana Pacers, and...
    After surpassing expectations from them last season, the Dallas Mavericks are expected to be more aggressive in upgrading their roster in the 2020 offseason. With the massive improvements shown by Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis, some people think that the Mavericks are only a superstar away from being a legitimate title contender in the loaded Western Conference. In the past months, they have already been linked to several players who are expected to be available on the trading block this fall, including All-Star center Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz. In a recent article, Zach Lowe of ESPN revealed that several league executives have “pitched” the Mavericks as a trade destination for Gobert if he and the Jazz decided to...

    Miami Heat point guard Goran Dragic is set to be one of the most coveted veterans on the free agency market in the 2020 offseason. Dragic may be highly expected to return to South Beach next season, but anything is possible until he officially inks a new contract with the Heat. One of the teams that could try to steal the Slovenian floor general from Miami is the Dallas Mavericks. With their obvious need for additional star power on their roster, Mandela Namaste of Bleacher Report believes that Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic should consider recruiting his “longtime mentor” to Dallas in the 2020 free agency. Though he’s already on the downside of his career, Namaste thinks that pairing Dragic with...
    According to a new report, the Dallas Mavericks are interested in adding another selection in the 2020 NBA Draft by trading up for a lottery pick. Citing a members’ only report from Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News, Bleacher Report wrote that the Mavericks have apparently placed all their players on the trading block, with the exception of their top two scorers, Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. This is supposedly in an effort to move into the top 14 of this year’s draft, thus giving the organization an additional, potentially more promising pick to add to the No. 18 and No. 31 selections. The publication also noted that per Townsend, Mavericks president and general manager Donnie Nelson has informed...
    The Dallas Mavericks last won their one and the only NBA title in 2011. In the past twenty years, they’ve reached the playoffs 16 times, but lifted the title just once. Hence, team owner Mark Cuban has an eccentric idea to change their fate in the approaching season. The franchise knows that they’ve got a significant chance to make it big with the European duo. Both Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis have shown great caliber in this past season. It will be the cherry on the cake if the Mavs can add one more solid name to turn it into a killer trio. Well, at least the ambitions of the organization seem aligned with this aim. The Dallas Mavericks...

    The Dallas Mavericks are one of the teams that are expected to be aggressive on the market this offseason. Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis may have already blossomed into All-Star caliber talents but in order to have a realistic chance of fully dominating the Western Conference and winning the NBA championship title next season, the Mavericks obviously need more star power on their roster. In the past months, they have already been linked to several potential trade candidates this fall, including Andre Drummond of the Cleveland Cavaliers. In a recent article, Greg Swartz of Bleacher Report included the Drummond-to-Mavericks deal on his list of impact trades NBA contenders can make in the 2020 offseason. In the proposed scenario, Dallas would...
    Getty Los Angeles Lakers huddle. Over the years, Danny Green has become known as one of the better shooters in the NBA. That wasn’t the case in the playoffs for the Los Angeles Lakers. He quickly became public enemy number one in Los Angeles following a number of bad shooting performances. While Green was a starter for the team most of the season, there was a time when the Lakers considered trading him. In fact, they “had a deal” in place with the Dallas Mavericks before it fell apart. Now that the season is over, it’s possible the Lakers try to revisit the trade. Green had a bad postseason and the team could look to other players to...
    According to a recent list of trade ideas involving the Golden State Warriors‘ No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, the team could send the selection to the Dallas Mavericks in a deal that would allow them to acquire Kristaps Porzingis and Seth Curry. As explained by Fansided‘s Blue Man Hoop, Porzingis has largely enjoyed a productive career despite his youth but has also missed significant time due to injuries, as he sat out the entire 2018-19 season and recently underwent surgery to address a torn meniscus. Although he has played well since getting traded from the New York Knicks to the Mavericks, his injury history and his inability to “carry a heavy load” might be good reasons...

The billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner appeared on former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly's new podcast The Megyn Kelly Show for an hour-long episode that aired on Monday to discuss the NBA Finals, foreign business deals and the Black Lives Matter movement, among several other topics.  At one point during the heated conversation, Kelly referenced the NBA's dealings with China, a market that is reportedly worth $4 billion to the league, and pointed out the country's controversial history of human rights violations. China has been accused of controlling its population through forced sterilization and abortion; having labor camps and carrying out ethnic cleansing...
    The Dallas Mavericks have one of the brightest futures in the entire NBA right now. They have a generational talent in Luka Doncic who just has two seasons of NBA experience under his belt. Doncic has already ascended to the level of an MVP and led the Mavericks in inspiring fashion this season. However, it isn’t just Luka. He has a European teammate who is a sweet-shooting 7’3 ‘unicorn’ in Kristaps Porzingis. All should be good in Dallas, right? Well no. Porzingis is having some major fitness concerns. After missing the entire 2018-19 NBA season to recover from knee injuries, KP was traded to Dallas by the New York Knicks. However, Porzingis’ comeback was short-lived, as he missed the end...
    DALLAS (AP) — Dallas Mavericks forward Kristaps Porzingis had surgery to address a lateral meniscus injury in his right knee, and the team said Friday there was no timetable for a return. The 7-foot-3 Latvian injured the knee in the opener of a first-round playoff series against the Los Angeles Clippers in August. Porzingis played the next two games before being sidelined the remainder of a series won in six games by the Clippers. The Mavericks ended a three-year run of missing the playoffs behind the European pairing of Porzingis and 21-year-old sensation Luka Doncic. It isn’t clear when NBA training camps will start because of the pandemic, but Commissioner Adam Silver has said he doesn’t expect next season to...

    Dallas Mavericks center Kristaps Porzingis, who has been plagued by injuries throughout his basketball career, has gone under the knife once again. As reported by ESPN‘s Tim McMahon and others on Friday, the 2018 NBA All-Star underwent surgery to remedy a lateral meniscus injury in his right knee that was suffered during his team’s first-round playoff series against the Los Angeles Clippers. Per a statement from the Mavericks, there is currently no timetable for 7-foot-3 center’s return to the court, although it was noted that he would begin rehabilitation immediately. Porzingis reportedly explored a myriad of options before opting for surgery, including having platelet-rich plasma injections in hopes that they would enhance the natural healing process for his meniscus.

    It was just last year when Boban Marjanovic was acquired by the Dallas Mavericks. Who knew he would create such an incredible impact in his first playoffs with the Mavs? Initially, his contribution in the season was sparse. But  when the Mavericks were ridden with injuries, it was Boban who stepped up alongside Luka Doncic. The Dallas Mavericks quickly became the underdogs fans fell in love with. However, their run ended a little early than people wanted. Recently in an interview with Pelicans’ J. J. Redick, the third Mavs center talked about his popularity in his hometown and his big hands being the reason behind his terrific shots. His teammate Luka also came up, and Boban had a lot to...

    After successfully ending their three-year playoff drought in the 2019-20 NBA season, the Dallas Mavericks are expected to be more aggressive in upgrading their roster this fall. Though they managed to surpass the expectations from them this year, they obviously need more star power around the young superstar duo of Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis in order to have a realistic chance of fully dominating the Western Conference and winning an NBA championship title. One of the most intriguing targets for the Mavericks in the 2020 free agency is Fred VanVleet of the Toronto Raptors.

    The LA Clippers closed out a tough series against the Dallas Mavericks in Game 6 to win the series. The Dallas Mavericks made this a better first-round playoff series than anticipated, but were ultimately outmatched by the LA Clippers. Despite the Clippers losing Marcus Morris early in this Game 6 clincher, the loss of Kristaps Porzingis (among other things) stung the Mavs too much for them to keep up. Dallas, the regular season’s league-leading offense, couldn’t buy a 3 on Sunday, going a putrid 11-of-37 from downtown (29.7 percent). Pair that with its lackluster (at best) defense, and you get a pretty bad result. Final Los Angeles Clippers 111 Dallas Mavericks 97 Here’s what you missed from Clippers-Mavericks Game 6.Meme-able...

    The NBA has had a history of jerseys that fans couldn’t stand. Some were so bad that even players and owners complained about them. Whether it’s poor design or just an awful choice of colors, the league has witnessed some truly horrendous clothing.

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The American Airlines Center will be the “largest polling place in Dallas County” on Election Day, which is on Nov. 3, the Dallas Mavericks announced Friday. The decision is part of an NBA league-wide call to action to make arenas that are owned and controlled by a franchise to be made into polling places for Election Day. The NBA and the players association made a joint statement Friday, saying “In every city where the league franchise owns and controls the arena property, team governors will continue to work with local elections officials to convert the facility into a voting location for the 2020 general election to allow for a safe in-person voting option for communities vulnerable to...

    After four close games between the Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks, the favorite finally found some separation on Tuesday. The Clippers absolutely decimated the Mavericks, 154-111 to take a 3-2 lead in the series. More importantly, they got many of their struggling players back on track. Paul George and Montrezl Harrell combined for 56 points, and the team as a whole hit 22 3-pointers to not only take the lead in the series, but to send a statement to the underdog Mavericks that, despite the series so far, these teams are not close to even.  The Mavericks, meanwhile, have to go back to the drawing board after one of their worst losses of the season.

    The NBA is in a thick soup as far as its viewership over the years is concerned. Recently, Kevin Durant took to Twitter to give his opinion on the possible cause of the dearth. But the Western Conference is not disappointing anyone, as the post-season has produced some eyeball grabbing rivalries. One such brewing enmity is between the LA Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks, who are locked at 2-2.  The Dallas Mavericks won their last outing against the Clippers in OT.

    Luka Doncic is going to have to carry the Mavericks again. His fellow Dallas star, Kristaps Porzingis, will miss his second straight game of the thrilling series against the Clippers, which is tied 2-2 with Game 5 on Tuesday night. Porzingis has been dealing with lingering soreness in his right knee — not the same leg he tore his ACL in when he was with the Knicks. Tests have not revealed any structural damage. Porzingis, 25, had been a dominant force in the first three games of the series, averaging nearly 24 points per game, and Game 1 turned to the Clippers’ advantage over the Latvian’s controversial ejection. This season is Porzingis’ first trip to the playoffs. Doncic scored...
    The Clippers head coach did not mince words when assessing his team’s Game 4 loss. After the Los Angeles Clippers blew a 21-point lead to an injury-depleted Dallas Mavericks team on Sunday, head coach Doc Rivers called his team’s Game 4 performance “very emotionally weak”. Rivers was displeased with the lack of mental fortitude and substandard execution his team displayed as Luka Doncic ignited a spectacular comeback. The 21-year old, playing on a sprained ankle and without Kristaps Porzingis, capped his 42-point, 17-rebound, 13-assist masterpiece with a step-back 27-foot buzzer-beater in overtime to give Dallas the 135-133 victory.

    Luka Doncic carried the Dallas Mavericks to an eye-opening win over the LA Clippers in Game 4. The LA Clippers led by as many as 21 points in Game 4 on Sunday, but even that massive lead wasn’t enough to stop Luka Doncic. Thanks to the second-year superstar’s efforts and game-winning 3-pointer over Reggie Jackson, the 7-seeded Dallas Mavericks secured a huge Game 4 victory in overtime to even this first-round NBA playoff series at two games apiece. Despite not having Kristaps Porzingis due to a sore right knee, Doncic’s second career playoff triple-double — as well as major help from Trey Burke (25 points), Tim Hardaway Jr. (21 points) and Seth Curry (15 points) — helped the Mavs overcome a...

    When the Playoff finals are at stake, nothing is unfair or out of the question. This is a statement that the Los Angeles Clippers took quite seriously when playing their third game of the series against the Dallas Mavericks. After their 130-122 win on Friday, the Clippers declared their ruthless strategy to disable the Mavericks team altogether. This strategy undertaken by the Clippers can cost the Mavericks a win at the series. The seventh-seeded Mavericks have come a long way and certainly do not want it to end like this. What were the Clippers focusing on? From the very beginning of the game, Kawhi Leonard and his team were being extremely aggressive on the court and set the tone of...

For Los Angeles to have success and go far in the playoffs, it’s going to be a team effort. Leonard and George are just two players who can prove some scoring.

    The Utah Jazz have had a disappointing start to their bubble campaign. With just two wins in their first six games, they have slid from fourth to sixth. They started with a win against the Pelicans and it has gone downhill since then. The Dallas Mavericks have also had a not so great start, going 2-3 from their first five games.
