The Dallas Mavericks are willing to take on large salaries from a team in order to acquire a star player, sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The Mavericks are building around Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis, but have tried to maintain cap flexibility for 2021.

Dallas owes future first round picks in 2021 and 2023 to the New York Knicks as part of the Porzingis trade.
