Should the Dallas Mavericks trade for Pascal Siakam this offseason?
If the Toronto Raptors make Siakam available this summer, the Mavs should be one of many teams calling about acquiring him. The 27-year-old is a proven scorer, rebounder, defender, and playoff performer. Dallas would have not to worry about a dip in the postseason from Spicy P.
Trading for Siakam will come down to the price. Hollinger notes the Warriors may offer the seventh overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft and James Wiseman for Siakam. If Toronto is looking to rebuild, that is a tough offer for the Mavericks to match. Dallas’ deal will be centered around Kristaps Porzingis, plus a first-round pick and a role player or two of Toronto’s choosing. Can the Raptors get more from another team?
The Dallas Mavericks are going to have to get creative to acquire a second star this summer. Yes, they have cap space, but there are not many free agents that fit that mold. Dallas will have to make a trade. Can the new front office pull it off? Who will they acquire?
Mavs fans should stay tuned because there will be plenty of news, rumors, and analysis in the weeks ahead. Check back to The Smoking Cuban for all the latest.
