Breaking: Dallas Mavericks Confirm In Talk To Sign Top Experienced NBA Star In Free Agency

Rumors: Mavericks’ Star Free Agency Target Open to Exploring Options


The Dallas Mavericks recently concluded their most successful season in years, ultimately falling to the Boston Celtics in the 2024 NBA Finals.

Despite a valiant effort and a win in Game 4, the Mavericks have significant improvements to make if they hope to return to the Finals next season. Their performance in the Finals was marred by several mistakes, and free agency presents a prime opportunity for them to strengthen their roster.

One major issue for Dallas was the absence of a reliable third scorer and a consistent sharpshooter. Addressing this gap could be crucial, and a potential solution might lie in a high-profile free agent.

Klay Thompson Open to Exploring Free Agency

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Klay Thompson is “open to all external options in free agency.” The Mavericks have been linked to Thompson for a few months, and for the first time in his career, he is considering testing the free agency market.

Thompson, who has been a steadfast member of the Golden State Warriors throughout his career, is now potentially open to leaving. This situation presents the Mavericks with a prime opportunity to pursue him. While acquiring Thompson would likely require a sign-and-trade deal and come at a high cost, he would be a fantastic addition to the team.

In the last season with Golden State, Thompson averaged 17.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 0.6 steals per game, shooting 43.2 percent from the field and 38.7 percent from three-point range. Although these numbers reflect a down year for Thompson, he would still serve as an excellent third scoring option for Dallas.

With Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving creating numerous open looks, Thompson’s defensive skills and locker-room leadership would be invaluable. His experience, evidenced by four NBA Championships, could be pivotal for Dallas in making another deep playoff run.

If signed, Thompson would immediately step in as the third scorer the Mavericks need, making them strong contenders for his signature.

For all the latest updates on the Dallas Mavericks this offseason, stay tuned.
