The 2010 NBA champs will surely be busy this offseason as they have six unrestricted free agents set to hit the market.
Tyson Chandler and Jose Juan Barea headline the Mavs' offseason free agents, and if the Mavs want to defend their title, they will need to get creative.
Mark Cuban has made some big moves during his time in Dallas, and landing Monta Ellis would be huge for the Mavericks.
During the Mavericks' championship run in 2010, they had DeShawn Stevenson starting at shooting guard. No offense to Stevenson, who did great during the playoffs in 2010, but he is no Monta Ellis, and it's not even close.
The Mavericks are certainly getting older, and Ellis could be a young spark plug they could rely on to score about 25 points per game. Ellis, Nowitzki and Kidd would be one heck of an all-around Big Three.
If the Mavericks were to work a trade out to get Ellis, they would more than likely have to include Tyson Chandler as part of a sign-and-trade. They would also have to throw in a first-round pick as well.
Ellis would give the Mavs a great opportunity to repeat.
