Hope this goes better than the Mavs current 5 year effort to do the same with Dwight Powell....

I love Theis and if he could shoot 34-35% on 4-5 3FGA a game that would be a nice little bonus. But I would much rather have seen them go hard after Gasol or Baynes--both of whom just seem like perfect fits and both of whom seem unlikely to get over the MLE unless their current teams one year balloon them---admittedly likely for Gasol. Or even just Paul Millsap.
