Pending Kristaps Porzingis’ health, the Mavs won the trade deadline. Here’s a look at where they may be going next…

MM: If you land Nikola Vucevic, you’d have one of the better frontcourts in the game. And both of your big men would be capable of spacing the floor and knocking it down from the perimeter. This would form one of the greatest Euro trios of all-time. I think this is where the Mavs are headed. And why wouldn’t Vucevic be interested in that scenario. Unless he’s dead set on going to a market like New York or LA, I think Dallas would be a great destination for Vucevic. This guy has quietly been extremely consistent. He’s so much more skilled than DeAndre Jordan, it’s not funny. And he also puts up big rebounding numbers. He’s closer to Jokic than Nurkic is. And I mean that as a huge compliment. Other than Embiid, Jokic might be the best center in the game. Vucevic isn’t far behind.

Will Mark Cuban take a run at Anthony Davis in the offseason?

MM: The Mavs will build around Kristaps Porzingis and Luka Doncic. They may be one of the only teams in the league not coveting Davis right now. I’m not saying Porzingis is the better player by any stretch, but this is the path the Mavs have chosen. They need to find out what Porzingis can become. When healthy, he’s been pretty special. The Mavs will spend their time looking for players they truly have a chance to land, like Vucevec from Orlando.

Did Harrison Barnes really know he was going to be traded prior to the game vs. Charlotte?

MM: He simply knew that something was in the works. It sounds like the Mavs gave him the option of not playing, but that’s not really in his DNA. He’s a stand-up guy who saw his role on this team change because Luka Doncic has become an instant superstar. He would’ve been an interesting third option next to Luka and KP… but a very expensive one. And his ball-stopping ways just aren’t a great fit. He certainly did his part for more than two years, though. He can now help lead a talented young team to the playoffs. It’s a pretty good situation.
