Luka Doncic cannot do this alone and it that has been proven in the last few games for the Dallas Mavericks. Doncic recorded back-to-back triple doubles in the games against the Bucks and Bulls, and they lost both games.

Big names like Kyrie Irving, Zach LaVine, Andre Drummond, Bradley Beal, and Kyle Lowery are all being mentioned in trade rumors this year. It makes majority of the teams in the NBA brainstorm ideas on how to land that player. This is where the Mavericks need to be careful with their decisioning.

There are names the Dallas Mavericks should consider on the trade market, and names to avoid
