The Dallas Mavericks appear unlikely to make a significant trade deadline move.

Donnie Nelson noted that unless there's an "over the top'' deal on the table that the Mavericks will likely let the deadline pass without a move.

"I don't think this team needs more change unless there's good reasons for it,'' said Nelson, the Mavs' president of basketball operations. "We've got nine new faces and Dirk (Nowitzki) kind of in the lineup, then out of the lineup, then in the lineup.

"We  need to really kind of settle things down if we're going to make a real solid run at (the playoffs). We'll be opportunistic and educated on what's going on out there and if there's something that's an over the top type move, you know us, we're not afraid to pull the trigger around here.''
