Dallas Mavericks rumors: Adding big name player possible

The Dallas Mavericks didn’t lure Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh or LeBron James to Big D but that doesn’t mean they had a poor offseason. In fact, it could be argued that the Mavericks had one of (if not the best) offseasons in the NBA (excluding the Cleveland Cavaliers).

From acquiring Tyson Chandler to bringing in Chandler Parsons, an already talented roster appears to have become better and according to general manager Donnie Nelson, the Dallas Mavericks may not be done.

While bench players like Mo Williams and Shawn Marion have been of interest, Nelson suggested that adding another big name player isn’t out of the question.

“That’s always a possibility but we like the team, kind of where it’s at,” said Nelson.

More often than not, when a general manager is poised such a question they’ll suggest that adding an additional big name piece is unlikely, but not Nelson and the Mavericks who seem determined to build themselves a championship contender.

Of course, the Dallas Mavericks have no salary cap room so if they were to add another high profile player they’d need to do so though a trade. Thankfully they do have a couple of contracts that could be of interest to teams looking to clear salary, so Nelson’s suggestion of another solid player being added into the fold seems to carry some weight.

There was no mention of who the Mavericks may be targeting, of course, but they appear set to create havoc in the Western Conference with or without more additions.
