Dallas Mavericks Trade Options

Kyrie Irving, Brooklyn Nets

One player that the Dallas Mavericks cannot go after is Kyrie Irving. Irving is on his way out of Brooklyn and it has only been two seasons. Kyrie does bring a lot of scoring potential but he brings a lot of problems as well.

Kyrie Irving is currently away from the Brooklyn Nets and the trade rumors have really started to ramp up. Kyrie needs to be the star of an NBA franchise and if he is not the number one option to take the game winning shot, he throws a tantrum. These tantrums cause a lot of locker room issues.

Lets take a look at the last two teams Kyrie has played for since leaving Cleveland. With the Boston Celtics, Irving was rumored to cause drama in the locker room. Now that drama is back with all the hype on the Brooklyn Nets and Kyrie wanting to play with Durant. He is ready to be on the move again, right after the team pulled off a trade for James Harden.

Kyrie Irving is an elite NBA player but with his injuries and off the court issues, he is not worth trading for. Even though the Nets may not want a lot for Irving because they want him out of town. It still doesn’t bring great value to the Mavericks to pursue him.
