NBA Rumors: The Dallas Mavericks attempted to trade for Kelly Oubre Jr. last year and are anticipated to pursue him in free agency this year.


Kelly Oubre Jr. is one of the top prospects in 2021 free agency, with NBA rumors suggesting the Dallas Mavericks are interested in his services.

NBA rumors also suggest that the Mavericks tried to approach the Golden State Warriors before the trade deadline in March. According to Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report, the deal was centered around Kristaps Porzingis going the other way.

“Dallas is expected to register interest, too. Sources told B/R the Mavericks approached Golden State before the deadline on a structure that centered around Kristaps Porzingis, in exchange for Oubre.”

The Dallas Mavericks are looking to upgrade their squad and build a solid roster around talisman Luka Doncic for next season. Improving the defense is one of their top priorities, as it was one of the major reasons for yet another early exit from the postseason.
