The NBA's trade deadline is nearing on February 23rd. The Mavericks aren’t likely to be “big” movers and shakers, but they do have a few assets this year and a couple guys they’d probably like to move. Mark Cuban has said recently that the team isn’t really trying hard to be competitive, so don’t look for anything earth shattering: As we’ve noted ad nauseum, the only real likely moves for the Mavs involve finding new homes for Andrew Bogut and possibly Deron Williams.
