Report: Dallas Mavericks have ‘often discussed’ trading for Bradley Beal

The Dallas Mavericks reportedly have discussed trading for Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal.

“Bradley Beal is a name often discussed by Dallas Mavericks watchers as a perfect target for owner Mark Cuban’s ‘Nuclear Winter’ plan of talent acquisition,” Sports Illustrated’s Mike Fisher wrote.

Dallas clearly wants to pair Beal with its already exciting young duo of Kristaps Porzingis and Luka Doncic.

“In Dallas, the pursuit is all about ‘a third star,’ and Beal – the Washington Wizards standout who last year finished second in the NBA in points per game (30.5) – would actually qualify as something even more than that on a team featuring Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis,” Fisher wrote.

Beal, 27, is coming off a career year this past season. He averaged 30.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game.

Dallas seems to believe that it is a piece away from contending for a title next season.

Doncic led the Mavs to the playoffs this past year, but they were bounced in the first round by the Los Angeles Clippers.

However, Porzingis was injured in the series and missed key games.

Adding Beal may be exactly what the Mavs need to get over the hump in the West.
