Luka is a mess defensively so is hardaway and Brunson and lauri is better than the last two, fact is we need talent over everything else u can add defensive role players anytime
Ideally, you add guys that play both ways.
THJ made some big defensive plays for the Mavs in the playoffs. I hope he can do that for an entire season now, but I'm not holding my breath.
Luka and KP have to improve their defense too. Luka's not good as an on-ball defender and is below average as an off-ball defender. Well, he might be average, but honestly, if you're not above average or good, then it's not really worth analyzing nowadays, because it seems like it's all the same.
