Dallas Mavericks Trade Option No 4: Myles Turner (Indiana)
With JaVale McGee and Christian Wood on staff now, I’m not sure the Mavs need Turner like I thought they once did. But if injuries pop up or Dwight Powell/Maxi Kleber get moved, this is completely possible.
The Mavs have always been linked to Turner and Turner has seemingly been on the trade block for years. Playing in the last year of his deal, this could be Indiana’s last chance to get something for their 26-year-old center
Dallas Mavericks Trade Option No 5: Kyrie Irving (Brooklyn)
I wanted to avoid this one, but it was impossible. There’s so much complexity to the Kyrie Irving situation I’m not sure where to start. First, the situation in Brooklyn is a mess. Kevin Durant and Kyrie both look and sound like they want to leave. In order to keep the team from imploding they may need to get ahead of this and get the most for Durant, they should proactively move their most challenging personality.
Irving is a true super star and under normal conditions, far outside of the Mavs price range. But given the tenuous situation, it’s feasible the Mavericks could put something together to get Irving out of Brooklyn a couple months early for very cheap.
The Mavs have a solid locker room with players who are bought-in. Irving doesn’t exactly fit that mold (to put it mildly). But his talent may be too good to look past and if he was interested in remaking his image before free agency, the Mavs could snag a very motivated player for pennies on the dollar.
