According to a report, the Dallas Mavericks may not be a viable landing spot for Goran Dragic, as Dallas is not interested in paying the guard the $19 million he is owed for this season.

“I’ve been told that the Mavericks like Goran Dragic but don’t want to pay him $19 million this year,” said Tim MacMahon during a recent podcast appearance.

The Mavericks are looking to get superstar Luka Doncic some help. He essentially carried the team to a winning season this past year. If the organization wants to get to the next level, some key additions are needed.

While the idea of a Dragic fit in Dallas would be great in theory, it sounds like an unlikely outcome at this current time.

In the 2020-21 season, Dragic averaged 13.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 4.4 points per game. He shot the ball at a 43.2 percent clip from the field and a 37.3 percent clip from beyond the arc.

He was just traded to the Toronto Raptors from the Miami Heat, and it seems like a possibility that he will be moved again before the season starts. His contract will likely be the biggest obstacle in getting a deal done.

As for Dallas, the organization is looking to make the playoffs in the 2021-22 season for the third straight year.
