The Dallas Mavericks are one of the most promising and talented squads in the NBA with Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis in their roster.

According to an SI report, the Mavs are willing to trade the 2020 1st round pick in search of immediate help. The franchise has returned to the postseason for the first time in years and they are playing the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round of the 2020 playoffs.

Per sources, the Mavs have already made this pick available in trades in search of immediate help, as they look to accelerate their path toward contention. That may prove to be a trend, given the number of playoff teams in this part of the draft that would appear to be a player or two away from making a leap. The 16-22 range looks like a sweet spot for value, with a number of solid guards all but certain to be on the board, and the picks themselves expected to be attainable via trade.

The Mavericks haven’t missed time on bringing Luka Doncic help, as the team grows rapidly into a playoff and maybe title contenter in a few years. They are going to have the 18th pick in the first round of the 2020 NBA Draft.
