Needing to boost the talent and depth on their roster, the Dallas Mavericks will reportedly be making a run at free-agent brothers Jrue and Justin Holiday this summer.       

On Wednesday, Sports Illustrated's Jake Fischer reported the Mavericks "have emerged as serious contenders" to sign Jrue and Justin. 

Jrue has spent the last four seasons with the New Orleans Pelicans. The 2013 All-Star averaged 15.4 points, 7.3 assists and shot a career-high 45.3 percent from the field in 67 games last season. 

After bouncing around the NBA the past four years, Justin found a home with the New York Knicks last season. He set career highs in games played (82), points (7.7) and rebounds (2.7) per game, field-goal percentage (43.3) and three-point percentage (35.5). 

The Mavericks only have about $60 million in salary commitments next season, per HoopsHype.com. The team finished 33-49 last season, its worst record since the strike-shortened 1998-99 campaign.
