Kristaps Porzingis trade the Dallas Mavericks could pull off: 1. Unicorn to Boston
Kemba Walker reportedly wants out of Boston. The Mavs were interested in signing him when he was a free agent in 2019. There has already been plenty of talk about the two teams making a swap of former All-Stars.
The Mavericks should look to get Marcus Smart added into the deal. They need to improve their perimeter defense if they are going to make a serious run. Adding both guards gives them some additional playmaking ability, while also leaving them with enough defense. Smart is willing to guard anyone and has made two All-Defensive teams.
Dallas would have to give up a first-round pick and additional salary to acquire Marcus Smart. Dwight Powell makes the math works out. He was drafted by the Celtics and gives them a rim roller to complement Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.
Boston would need to add a starting point guard if they trade both Kemba and Smart. It appears they will attempt to bring back soon-to-be free agent Evan Fournier. They could add a veteran placeholder with Tatum and Brown doing the majority of the creating.
The Dallas Mavericks are going to be active and aggressive this offseason. They will be exploring Kristaps Porzingis trades. Stay tuned to see if the Mavs make a deal.
