The odds of the Mavericks pulling off a blockbuster deal before the trade deadline are still extremely slim, but Dallas has been in discussions about upgrading its backup point guard spot.
The Mavs have targeted Milwaukee’s Beno Udrih, ESPN.com’s Marc Stein reports.
However, the Bucks have much bigger priorities -- trying to land Atlanta forward Josh Smith – and could need Udrih’s $7.4 million expiring contract to make that deal work.
The 30-year-old Udrih is averaging 6.7 points and 3.5 assists while shooting 47.5 percent from the floor in 18.4 minutes per game this season. Udrih, a starter in Sacramento for three years before joining the Bucks last season, has career averages of 9.1 points and 3.5 assists.
