The Dallas Mavericks is the worst team in the NBA right now. Dallas holds a 2-13 record and is on a three-game losing slide. However, the fortune of the Mavericks may get better soon. In a recent statement, Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle suggested their willingness to accomplish roster moves, which could include NBA trades.

In a report by the Dallas Morning News, Carlisle was asked if they are looking at the market for "perimeter help" following the injury to Dorian Finney-Smith. The longtime Dallas Mavericks head coach answered, "I think we're pursuing anything and everything out there." But he added that his focus remains on current Mavericks players, and helping them survive the ordeal they are facing at the moment.

Aside from Finney-Smith, there are a few more players on the injury list of the Mavericks. The likes of Seth Curry and Devin Harris are also out for the Mavs. That is why ESPN proposed that they could complete NBA trades to improve.

Wes on his way out?

In ESPN's report, one of the players mentioned that might be part of NBA trades for the Dallas Mavericks was Wesley Matthews. It is understandable why Matthews is on the list of potential trade assets. He is among the guys on the Mavericks roster that have great value and at 31 years old, is a veteran still capable of playing at a high-level. In 15 games so far this season, Matthews has averaged 11.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 1.2 steals per outing.

Though at this point, it is unknown what the Mavericks are looking for if they decide to pursue a trade.

Possibly joining Matthews on the trade block according to ESPN are Nerlens Noel, Devin Harris, Josh McRoberts and Jeff Withey. Matthews and Noel will likely be the ones to capture the most interest. Noel is a young center in the NBA who is still developing.

Sadly, he is unable to thrive with the Mavericks this season.

Snap the streak

On November 17, the Dallas Mavericks have an opportunity to end a three-game losing streak when they host Jimmy Butler and the Minnesota Timberwolves this month. The Mavericks lost their first meeting with the Timberwolves on November 4, 112-99. After this, the Mavs will continue a four-game homestand on November 18 and 20.

On the 18th, they will face the new-look Milwaukee Bucks. The Mavericks are going to close the homestand on the 20th versus arguably the best team in the Eastern Conference at this point, the Boston Celtics.
