The Dallas Mavericks will be active in looking for ways to upgrade their roster prior to the February trade deadline.

“There’s a 100 percent chance that we’re going to try to do something,” Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said.

Dallas has several players with expiring contracts, which could be attractive to teams trying to cut costs.

“Hopefully that will play to our advantage because (teams) can’t avoid looking at trades,” Cuban said. “But I don’t have a preference one way or the other. I’m not going to do a trade just to do a trade, even if it’s a star. ... It’s hard to find just one guy who puts you over the top. It has to be somebody who gets us to the point where we could get back on track to where we want to be.”
