The Dallas Mavericks could use another man at the front, a 3-D player. Although they have more than enough talent on the roster, adding a tested veteran in someone like Bojan Bogdanovic could be plausible.

This was mentioned by Phoenix radio host John Gambadoro, mentioning that the Mavericks are now among the teams interested in the Utah Jazz small forward.

This makes the Mavs the latest team after the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks and the Phoenix Suns who have been also linked with the Croatian cager. However, acquiring Bogdanovic needs proper study.

Dallas added Christian Wood and JaVale McGee to shore up their frontline. They previously had a mid-level exception to take in another player but eventually used this on Jaden Hardy, agreeing to a three-year deal.

However, to acquire the 31st overall pick of the 2011 NBA Draft, Dallas would need to figure out what they can offer in exchange.

Most know that Utah has been pretty much interested in future picks so giving up a future first-round pick is the most likely scenario.

Bogdanovic could bolster the outside artillery that the Mavs could use on offense. Also, the 6-foot-8 cager can play good defense, making him an interesting two-way player to add to the Dallas fold.

The Croatian shone brightly for the Jazz, especially in their first-round playoff series against the Mavericks during the 2021-22 NBA season. But the huge question right now is whether a future pick would get this trade done.

The Jazz is listening to offers in what is looming as an apparent major rebuild. They have already traded away Rudy Gobert (Minnesota) and Donovan Mitchell (Cleveland). They are open to trading away more veterans such as Bogdanovic, Jordan Clarkson and Mike Conley Jr. but only if the price is right.

Luka Doncic needs all the help he can get and Bogdanovic certainly appears to be a player that would make sense for the Mavericks this coming NBA season.
