Meanwhile, the 63-year-old is seeing a pretty unpredictable off-season for his NBA team. While the Mavs have already secured the ever-important extension for Luka Doncic, unlike other competitors, Dallas have been pretty silent.

If Porzingis continues to disappoint, his time with the Mavs might be somewhat over. Will Cuban and the Mavs pull off a surprise move and finally let go off the Latvian?
