Nelson Says Mavs Unlikely To Make Trades

Dallas Mavericks president Donnie Nelson tells Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he doesn't expect the team to make any major trades before the February 21 deadline, saying they would prefer to keep their current roster together to make a run at the playoffs.

"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.''

Mavs owner Mark Cuban has previously stated that the team is looking to make trades with their many moveable assets before the deadline.

Donnie Nelson is seriously deluded if he thinks this team is A) going to the playoffs, and B) doing any damage when they get there.

They need to get to tanking. And fast.
