The Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers are teams that appeal to Holiday, according to NBA insiders Barry Jackson and Anthony Chiang of The Miami Herald. However, since Holiday doesn’t have a no-trade clause in his contract, he can’t control where gets traded to, so the Mavericks could acquire him.

Holiday played in 67 games for the Bucks in 2022-23. He averaged 19.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 7.4 assists. The NBA champion signed a four-year, $135 million extension with Milwaukee in April 2021.

A California native, Holiday has career NBA averages of 16.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 6.5 assists with the Sixers, New Orleans Pelicans and Bucks. He has made five All-Defensive teams and two All-Star teams.

The Mavericks could start Holiday, Kyrie Irving, Luka Doncic, Grant Williams and Dwight Powell if Dallas’ front office figured out a way to acquire Holiday from Portland.
