The Dallas Mavericks are among the teams with an interest in Los Angeles Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell, as relayed by Mike Fisher of's DallasBasketball.

Harrell is eligible to become a free agent this offseason.

"The Mavs front office has made no secret of wishing to add some 'tough-guy attitude' to the roster ... and Harrell, as he demonstrated with his racial-slur conflict with (Luka) Doncic in Round 1, is not afraid to play the role of the heel," Fisher wrote.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Clippers and Harrell share a "mutual interest" in re-joining forces next season.

Along with Clippers and Mavericks, the Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks are all expected to have interest.
