The Dallas Mavericks have not been shy about trading away their draft picks. It started with dealing two first-rounders to move up to grab Luka Doncic. The Mavs shipped out two more to acquire Kristaps Porzingis from the New York Knicks, and a top ten protection on their 2023 pick limits Dallas from trading their first in 2025. They have no hesitation about giving up future picks to improve their roster.
