Donnie Nelson Confident that the Mavericks Were Wise to Stand Pat at this Year’s NBA Trading Deadline

by Michael Bean

“There was a wave of activity prior to last week’s NBA trading deadline, but one legitimate contender opted to stay pat — the Dallas Mavericks. Currently positioned as the No. 2 seed in the West, the Mavericks ultimately decided to not force the issue by trading away valuable young assets in the name of adding a piece or two that may or may not really give them much of an edge in their quest to finally get over the hump in the playoffs and bring a title back to Dallas.  General Manager Donnie Nelson explained late last week on the air in Dallas that the Mavericks didn’t want to risk jeopardizing the outstanding chemistry this particular group has, and that certain assets on the team were too valuable in the long term to consider trading unless the absolute perfect deal came along. Which it didn’t.”
