Mavs reportedly interested in Richaun Holmes

Holmes is a guy who would fit perfectly with Luka. Great rim-roller & finished. Has a nice little mid-range push shot that he does from time to time. The only thing is, even though he’s a good rim protector, he’s not the greatest defender overall. So if KP isn’t going to be the KP we saw in the bubble last year, Mavs might have to do something with KP (maybe S&T to SAC?) if they want to go the Holmes route. Or maybe KP benefits tremendously from having his first ever healthy offseason & we all look silly in about 3-4 months.

I think the Mavs would be OK with KP and Holmes on the court, even if the defense suffered a little. I think the offense Holmes could add would be a net positive. He'd be an improvement over about anyone else the Mavs have lol

No argument from me there. It’d certainly be better than starting Boban in a Game 7 vs the Clippers…..
