The Dallas Mavericks currently sit seventh in the NBA’s tough Western Conference, so it’s within reason to suggest they’re a fringe playoff team despite a 23-16 record.
Due to that, one would assume the Mavericks would be active players in the trade market – and it’s very possible they could be moving forward, but according to general manager Donnie Nelson they currently have no interest in trading for Andre Miller of the Denver Nuggets or signing free agent big man, Andrew Bynum.
On if the Mavericks might pursue Andrew Bynum:
“We’re happy with the 15 that we’ve got … You never say never in this league, but that would be a long to long-long-long shot if that happened.
On if the Mavericks might pursue Andre Miller:
We’re really happy with our backcourt. It’s really been one of our real keys to our success this year, so certainly we wouldn’t be looking to mess around with that.”
Both Miller and Bynum are coming off situations where their attitude was put in question, so it’s understandable as to why the Mavericks wouldn’t be interested in obtaining either player.
