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.
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.
