Luka Doncic has been one of the brightest superstars in the NBA throughout recent years.

However, the farthest the team has come in the playoffs was this year when the club marched to the Western Conference Finals, where the Doncic-led squad had to bow down to the ultimate league champions Golden State Warriors.

During the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons, Dallas did not advance past the First Round. It is often talked about that Doncic's lack of surrounding support is one of the key reasons for the lackluster performance prior to this season.

Despite the fact, the Slovenian wunderkind is not active in recruiting players to his team, ESPN reports.

"They seek his input, but he's not heavily involved in personnel decisions," ESPN's reporter Tim MacMahon told. "He has not shown interest in being heavily involved. He spends much of his offseason in Europe. He's not a guy who has shown the desire to be a recruiter."

After trading injury-riddled Kristaps Porzingis to the Washington Wizards, Doncic's best assistant on the team was previously-silent Jalen Brunson, who has signed a 4-year $104 million deal with the New York Knicks this summer.

In 15 postseason matches this year, Doncic led the NBA in scoring with 31.7 points per game, marking the second consecutive playoffs he accomplished the feat. He also averaged 9.8 rebounds, 6.4 assists, and 1.8 steals.
