The Dallas Mavericks are in the news due to NBA trade gossip. NFL defensive end Myles Garrett wants in on the conversation.
Garrett, the Cleveland Browns standout via Texas A&M, has essentially sent his audition tape to Mavs team owner Mark Cuban.
On Wednesday, the 25-year-old star shared his own basketball highlight video while asking Cuban, “Do you need a point guard?”
The Mavs actually do not need an oversized point guard, as that is the job of All-Star starter Luka Doncic. But there is no denying that Garrett - who jokingly reached out to Cuban instead of the Cleveland Cavaliers as Garrett is from the DFW area - has some skills that go beyond being a two-time Pro Bowler.

Garrett, who is 6-4 and 275 pounds, has previously showcased his ability to dominate on the basketball court via this video showing him bullying opposing defenders in a pick-up game.
So yeah, he is a “big guard.” But he’s a better defensive end. And so the Mavericks, while they surely appreciate the fun-loving offer, will stay focused on issues like getting Kristaps Porzingis involved and maybe on looking at trade ideas involving the likes of John Collins of the Atlanta Hawks.
