Former All-Star Dallas Mavericks could trade for cheap: 1. Victor Oladipo
Oladipo has already been traded once this season as the Pacers shipped him to Houston for Caris LeVert. The Rockets have lost 12 straight games, and Oladipo recently turned down a contract extension. The 28-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent after the season. Do the rebuilding Rockets trade him before the deadline?
Oladipo has struggled with his efficiency in Houston. He averages 19.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 1.5 steals per game on the season, but the 6’4 wing is shooting just 39.0 percent from the field and 29.7 percent on his 3-point tries over his 14 games with the Rockets. Oladipo is a two-time All-Star. He made the All-NBA and All-Defensive team in 2018. The 28-year-old should draw interest, especially as a rental for a contender.
Would the Dallas Mavericks trade for Victor Oladipo? It is not out of the question. The 28-year-old could be the defensive wing and third scorer the Mavs need to become serious title contenders. His injury history will be a bit of a worry, but Dallas can assess that before signing him to an extension in the offseason.
Fans should expect plenty of action before the trade deadline. Stay tuned for all the news, rumors, and analysis because it promises to be a wild ride.
