Exciting times are ahead for the Dallas Mavericks as the duo of last year’s best rookie Luka Doncic and the comeback of Kristaps Porzingis are giving the numbers Mark Cuban is expecting them to produce.

The Slovenian guard just had his third triple-double of the season following a 131-111 win at Cleveland and Porzingis is showing his shot-blocking prowess like he never left.

With player movements already making a buzz this early, teaming up the Wonderboy and the Unicorn duo with another experienced point guard could benefit the team in the long run.

With Jalen Brunson making a good account of himself as their starting point guard, having a veteran like Chris Paul orchestrating the offense is a great opportunity for the young guns to learn from the former Olympic gold medalist.

Before moving to OKC, the 34-year old Paul is still one of the best at the one-spot per real plus-minus last season per Bleacher Report – the only players ahead of him are Russell Westbrook and James Harden. His current averages are 14.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.5 steals with the Thunder through six games as a starter.

Bringing his 14-year experience to the Mavericks, Paul will give the younger ones a run for their money in practice, given that his skills set is way ahead of Brunson, Delon Wright and Seth Curry. Doncic may also learn some tricks from the best rookie of 2006 and nine-time all-star.

Acquiring Porzingis via trade with New York last season gave Mavs a stretch big man following Dirk Nowitzki’s retirement and having someone like CP3 directing the plays will make basketball easier for coach Rick Carlisle – whether setting up the shooters Curry, Maxi Kleber and even Ryan Broekhoff, throwing up lobs to Dwight Powell or setting up plays for Boban Marjanovic on the post, you name it.

Another Bleacher Report article previously reported that the Thunder is looking to ship out Paul due to the emergence of sophomore Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Dallas can now start investing in this possibility as early as now for them to go deep into the playoffs.

Let’s not forget that in 2011, Dallas had a 38-year old Jason Kidd to provide backcourt stability and eventually won their first NBA title.
