Luka Doncic, star player for the Dallas Mavericks, is reportedly urging the team to make trades before the NBA deadline on February 9th, according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon.

Doncic is said to have "strongly indicated he wants the Mavs to upgrade" their roster.

This is significant as the Mavericks have not typically been impacted by the trend of superstars exerting influence over team decisions, which began around 2010 when players like Lebron James teamed up with other stars on different teams.

The Mavericks have historically had a loyal superstar in Dirk Nowitzki and have not had to deal with the ramifications of the current era of superstar empowerment.

However, the Mavericks have struggled with bad luck and poor decisions in the past five years, leaving them with a lack of assets to trade for a significant upgrade.

It remains to be seen if the Mavericks front office will be able to make a trade before the deadline and satisfy Doncic's desire to win now.
