Top NBA team targets Luka Doncic for the next offseason according to NBA insider

Luka Doncic has been blazing a trail this season, showcasing an MVP-worthy performance that has positioned the Dallas Mavericks as serious championship contenders.

According to reports, there’s speculation that Doncic might consider joining the New York Knicks, who are rumored to be willing to offer seven future first-round picks and three pick swaps to secure the superstar’s services if he becomes dissatisfied with his situation in Dallas. Eddie Presti wrote the following on Twitter:

According to NBA insider @IanBegley if DAL disappoints in the playoffs, there are whispers around the NBA that Luka may become unhappy in DAL. The Knicks can offer 7 1sts + 3 swaps for his services this summer. Would YOU give up the house for Luka if he became available?

The Mavericks are among the Western Conference teams poised for a postseason berth, standing at 30-23 and currently holding the eighth spot. In their quest to fortify the roster around Doncic, Dallas made significant acquisitions, including P.J. Washington and Daniel Gafford, aiming to enhance the team’s balance alongside stars like Luka Doncic, Kyrie Irving, and Dereck Lively II.

While these moves indicate an upgraded lineup on paper, the ultimate question remains: Can they translate this improvement into a championship-winning performance and hoist the Larry O’Brien trophy? Only time will tell.
