The Dallas Mavericks are looking into bringing both Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler to the franchise this offseason, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The New York Knicks pair are both likely to enter free agency this summer, and with Anthony in particular likely to generate huge interest, the Mavs reportedly intend to pursue their signatures.

Stein believes the Mavs are confident of gaining a face-to-face visit from the 2014 All-Star as he weighs up his options in the coming months.

With Dirk Nowitzki, still the franchise's star man by some distance, heading into his 17th season the Mavs are hoping to give the big German some help as they look to build on a solid 2013-14 season.

The Mavs are also considering a shock reunion with former player, and Melo teammate, Tyson Chandler according to the ESPN Insider.

Mavericks owner Marc Cuban let Chandler go to the Knicks in 2011 but the team are reportedly looking to bring back the 2011 NBA champion as they bid to improve their defense options.

The Mavericks were eliminated from the 2014 NBA playoffs last week with a crushing 119-96 Game Seven defeat to the San Antonio Spurs.
