The Dallas Mavericks reportedly would have “significant interest” in Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert if the team were to make him available.

It also sounds like Gobert would love to play with Mavericks star Luka Doncic.

While there is no indication that the Jazz plan to part ways with Gobert, who is under contract for several seasons, it appears Dallas will be monitoring the situation very closely.

This season, Gobert is having one of the best offensive campaigns of his career. The three-time All-Star is averaging 15.4 points per game while shooting 71.2 percent from the field. He is also averaging 14.6 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 2.1 blocks per game for Utah.

Gobert is a three-time Defensive Player of the Year, and he certainly would improve Dallas’ depth down low after it traded away Kristaps Porzingis before the trade deadline this season.

Utah has taken a step back in the 2021-22 season after it finished with the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference in the 2020-21 campaign.

The Jazz are currently the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference, and there’s probably a chance the team will look to change some parts of its roster if it is bounced early in the postseason.

The Mavericks, on the other hand, are the No. 3 seed in the West and have been playing some of their best basketball as of late.

It will be interesting to see how the Jazz and Mavericks proceed with their moves this offseason, especially if Gobert becomes available.
