Good News: Dallas Mavericks Confirm To Reach Mutual Agreement To Sign Top Sixer Star In July

Rumors: Mavericks Eyeing Bold Move for 76ers Star


As the Dallas Mavericks’ offseason kicks off, rumors are already swirling. One notable rumor is that the Mavericks might draft Bronny James with the No. 58 pick and offer him a guaranteed contract. Additionally, GM Nico Harrison revealed that re-signing Derrick Jones Jr. is Dallas’ top priority. Jones Jr. played a key role in the Mavericks’ success last season, and now the team might pursue a major trade to secure a third star alongside Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving.

Mavericks Targeting Tobias Harris

NBA insider Chris Haynes reported that the Mavericks are expected to show interest in Philadelphia 76ers forward Tobias Harris. Haynes mentioned this during a Bleacher Report live stream, noting that due to Harris’ expected salary, the Mavericks would need to orchestrate a sign-and-trade deal.

Harris’ Performance and Potential Fit


Last season, Harris averaged 17.2 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.7 blocks per game, shooting 48.7 percent from the field and 35.3 percent from three-point range. He excelled as the third scorer for the 76ers during the regular season but struggled in the playoffs, averaging just nine points per game.

Acquiring Harris would provide the Mavericks with a reliable third scorer next to Doncic and Irving. This move could potentially be executed at a favorable price, as the 76ers would benefit from a sign-and-trade rather than losing Harris for nothing. Harris is capable of scoring off the dribble, hitting open shots, and finishing around the rim.

### Impact on the Mavericks’ Lineup

Adding Harris would significantly enhance the Mavericks’ shooting capabilities, addressing a key need. This acquisition would allow Derrick Jones Jr. to move to the bench (if re-signed), further solidifying the team’s core. Such a move could elevate the Mavericks to title contenders once again next season.
