The Dallas Mavericks are unlikely to embark on "an all-out pursuit" of Rudy Gobert.

The Mavericks have spoken openly about their need to improve their rim protection and rounding, but their often reported interest in Gobert is somewhat overstated. 

Dallas sees Zach LaVine as the sort of player who would fill perhaps a more crucial need due to his ability to play off the ball as a spot-up shooter, but also penetrate off the dribble and cut to the basket.

The Mavericks would need LaVine and the Chicago Bulls to participate in a sign-and-trade, further complicated by their dearth of tradable assets.
