Trade target that makes Dallas Mavericks title contenders: 1. Bradley Beal

Beal is leading the league in scoring as he continues to improve his game. The 27-year-old is in the midst of his prime and has proven to be an elite scorer, strong playmaker, and capable defender. He continues to add aspects to his game. Beal just made his third All-Star team and is well on his way to his first All-NBA selection.

The 6’3 guard is under contract for $34.5 million next season and has a player option at $37.2 million for the 2022-2023 campaign. Beal is the marquee name on the trade market, and it would require a massive haul to pry him away from the Wizards. Dallas is unlikely to be able to put together that package, but he would be the perfect fit.

Beal is an elite shooter with experience playing off an All-Star point guard. He can get buckets, space the floor, and make plays for others. He is one of the best offensive players in the league and has an underrated defensive game. Beal would give Dallas three stars and vault them into title contention.
