Why Dallas Mavericks fans should still watch the 2021 NBA Draft: 1. Trades

Draft night always features a few important trades. Last year, the Mavs dealt Seth Curry to the Sixers for Josh Richardson and a second-round pick used to select Tyler Bey. Al Horford and Ricky Rubio were also among the names traded in the nine draft-night deals.

There will be multiple picks changing hands via trade on July 29. The Mavericks have made that type of deal for three straight years. They have a new front office, but Dallas remains eager to improve their roster. Draft night is the perfect time to make a trade that can set the Mavs up to spend more in free agency.

There is also the potential for a league-altering blockbuster on draft night. They always involve picks and a rebuilding team may want to start now. Trades always play an important role in the NBA Draft, and 2021 will be no different.

Next. Every way in which Jason Kidd will unlock Luka Doncic

The draft is always a league-altering night. Teams will add future All-Stars and All-NBA selections. Others are going to select busts. Hitting in the draft can change a team’s fortunes virtually overnight. Look at the Dallas Mavericks landing Luka Doncic. That alone should have all NBA fans tuning in. It promises to be a fun and eventful evening, so do not miss it.
