Big disappointment for the Mavs and Luka Doncic?


While the Mavs are still hoping for a reinforcement by the time of the resumption, the Texas franchise seemed to be on a pretty serious track. Unfortunately for Luka Doncic and company, the blow should not be done: big disillusion for the Slovenian.

Each time eliminated by the Clippers in recent years, the Mavericks are logically disappointed. With Luka Doncic on board, however, they hope to change the situation in the near future. This is largely possible, even if the lack of support is obvious: Kristaps Porzingis is the first target, he who has continued to decline in recent years.

But the Latvian is at work this summer, ready to bounce back from a very difficult campaign. Can he become the second weapon of a team aiming for the title, or at least a big performance in the West? We can strongly doubt it. The first months of competition will in any case be interesting to follow just for that.

Now we are waiting to see what the front office can do. Reinforcements are there with Moses Brown, Reggie Bullock or Nicolo Melli. It may not be over, since Doncic was seen recently with a departing player : Goran Dragic, not very happy to have landed with the Raptors after Kyle Lowry’s trade.

A persistent rumor has confirmed the interest of the Mavs, who have no plans to mount a trade for the 35-year-old. The problem is, journalist Jordan Schultz just cooled the mood in Texas a bit. Not only does Dragic not come to Dallas according to him, but the buyout with the Raptors is far from won.

Contrary to the news, sources have told me that Goran Dragic will not sign with the Mavs. Also, the Raptors and Dragic haven’t started buyout talks.

Cold shower in Dallas therefore, which should not welcome Goran Dragic, Luka Doncic’s teammate in Slovenia. Huge disappointment, even if a reinforcement is always possible by the start of training camp. We will quickly be fixed on this point.
