Owner Mark Cuban insists the Mavericks still waiting to make moves.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has insisted that he is still hoping to see some movement ahead of the trade deadline on February 21, reports Dallas News.
Since “the bank of Cuban” was opened in mid-January, the Mavs have gone 5-5 as they await new arrivals to help boost their play-off hopes.
Dallas are five games back from eighth spot in the Western Conference, and with just over 30 games to go Cuban is keen to add to the roster in order to boost their hopes of moving into contention.
“It takes two teams to trade, there’s a lot of deals we could make, but nobody seems willing to do what we want to do. You never know, but nothing imminent. The bank’s still open,” he told reporters on Monday.
Cuban went on to discuss that the Mavs will avoid signing just anybody, instead looking at players who can not only deliver now to secure play-off basketball this season, but also to lead the team in future years.
The 2011 NBA Champions are also keen to keep its financial situation under control in order to attempt to land a big free agent in the off-season, with Dwight Howard amongst a host of others available.
However, the immediate future will be of more concern to Mavs fans, who are looking at the possibility of missing out on landing a play-off spot after such recent success.
