Dallas Mavericks Rumors: DeMarcus Cousins Free Agency, Sign Giannis? Luka Doncic vs Tim Hardaway Jr.

The Dallas Mavericks already have five centers on their current roster, including injured Dwight Powell, but could they show some interest in signing one of the newest free agents in DeMarcus Cousins? Cousins was with the Los Angeles Lakers to start this season and was rehabbing from a torn ACL he suffered this summer, but when Markieff Morris was waived by the Detroit Pistons, DeMarcus Cousins was waived by the Los Angeles Lakers. Cousins hasn’t been the same since leaving the Sacramento Kings due to injuries, but could the Dallas Mavericks show some interest and attempt to revive his career alongside Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis? The Mavs have a long history of rehabbing players that have suffered tough injuries, but is DeMarcus Cousins even worth the risk at this point in his career?

Mark Cuban and the Mavericks are expected to have full cap space available in 2021 and could be looking to spend big. The 2021 NBA free agency class is absolutely stacked with big names like LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Anthony Davis all expected to hit the open market, but the two names that the Mavs are expected to take a look at are Giannis Antetokounmpo and Rudy Gobert. Both players bring the international flare that Dallas already possesses, but they would both add a facet to this team that is lacking with their defensive ability. Giannis Antetokounmpo would be much tougher to sign, but neither player is expected to be a Maverick by the end of the 2021 summer.

Luka Doncic and Tim Hardaway Jr. have been two of the three best Mavericks this season. Luka Doncic has been playing at an MVP level while leading the Dallas Mavericks to a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Tim Hardaway Jr. was simply a throw in and salary dump in the Kristaps Porzingis trade last January from the New York Knicks, but now he has become oone of the Mavs’ go-to players on a nightly basis. Hardaway has been consistent from three and a solid defensive wing, but which of the two players has been more surprising from the Mavericks? Is it the not eve 21-year-old MVP candidate, or the overpaid guard that was expected to be inefficient and out of the rotation this season becoming a legit player?
