At the moment, the Mavericks are reportedly hoping to acquire a center via the trade market. While the organization has been among those to show interest in Andre Drummond, Fischer wrote that Dallas has no plans of parting ways with Porzingis in order to acquire the Cleveland Cavaliers star.
”They want a big to pair with him,” an insider told the Bleacher Report writer. “Obviously with physicality, rebounding, toughness.”
Additionally, it was mentioned that Porzingis has three years remaining on his five-year, $158 million contract after this season, thus making him a potentially hard sell if the Mavericks decide to trade him.
