Here's a bit of Dallas Mavericks news as the Mavs prepare for a home showdown with the Utah Jazz tonight--it seems that wishful thinking regarding the Dallas Mavericks and a potential trade for Milwaukee Bucks' big man Larry Sanders could be just that...wishful thinking.
According to ESPN's Marc Stein, it doesn't seem like the Dallas Mavericks are going to have a chance at making a run for the Milwaukee Bucks' defensive stalwart prior to the February 20th NBA trade deadline--
"Sources briefed on the situation told ESPN.com that teams asking whether the defensive specialist has fallen far enough out of favor with his frustrated bosses to be made available are being turned away."
At this point, Stein states that "sources say that the Bucks don't seem to think they can afford to trade the 25-year-old this month."
The Dallas Mavericks' fan base has been clamoring via Twitter and other social mediums for the move or two prior to the NBA trade deadline--desperate to see the Mavs add one or two key pieces to make a run at a championship in a very deep Western Conference.
However, as of this point, it looks like trade options such as the Philadelphia 76ers' Spencer Hawes may be more feasible for the Dallas Mavericks.
