The Dallas Mavericks are trying real hard to botch this whole Luka Doncic thing.
When you have a player of Luka’s caliber, you cater as much as you can to that guy. And it certainly doesn’t appear that the Mavericks are doing any of that.
On Wednesday, it was announced that the Mavericks were firing the general manager who acquired Luka Doncic, Donnie Nelson.

According to reports, Luka Doncic wasn’t very happy with the move.
Here’s what ESPN’s Marc J. Spears said on Doncic’s reaction to the move:
“Donnie was fired, let’s just be real. He’s been there since 1988, and I’ve heard one guy that’s really upset about it is a guy you don’t want upset about it: Luka Doncic. They were really close,” Spears said on The Jump today.

Not only is Luka Doncic allegedly unhappy with Donnie Nelson’s firing. But Spears also reported that the Mavs are no where near an extension with Luka.
“Doncic’s in Slovenia, working out with the Slovenian national team getting prepared for the Olympics, and he will have a statement tomorrow at a press conference. I’m not sure what he’s going to say, but apparently he’s going to make a statement about Donnie’s firing tomorrow. I’m also being told, in terms of the $200 million extension, how are talks going? People close to him are saying ‘What talks?’ There’s no talks right now.”
Mark Cuban has some work to do this offseason. Without a happy Luka Doncic, the Mavs’ future is absolutely nothing.
