Mavs insider Mike Fisher is hearing that the Mavs are quietly considering a trade for Ricky Rubio to fill the team’s point guard void.
Rubio has been in trade rumors for a while now and the Wolves might be ready for Kris Dunn to take over even if the tape he put in last year wasn’t all that reassuring. The Mavs have obvious need at PG with Yogi Ferrell and J.J. Barea the current top two options, and with the team also expected to go hard after Jrue Holiday it’s clear that they’re looking for outside help. Fisher also noted that the team is high on French guard Frank Ntilikina but other reports have the Knicks set on picking him at No. 8. Dallas picks at No. 9 so they shouldn’t get their hopes too high on landing him.
