The Dallas Mavericks traded for Christian Wood this summer to solve their postseason rebounding woes and to give them a floor-spacing big man in the postseason. Wood averaged 19.1 points and 9.9 rebounds during his two seasons with the Rockets. Fans should not expect those numbers in Dallas, but he could be the perfect complement to Doncic if he realizes his full potential.
The Mavs are not done rounding out their roster. They only have 14 players under contract, and they need another ball-handler after the departure of Jalen Brunson. General manager and president of basketball operations Nico Harrison is still searching the trade market, and the team would love to get involved as the third team in a larger deal.
The Heat have always looking to acquire another star, and trading Duncan Robinson could be the key to that. He still has four years and $74.3 million left on his contract, and Robinson slipped out of the rotation in the playoffs. Heat fans have been debating his trade value, and it may be low.
What would it cost the Dallas Mavericks to trade for Duncan Robinson?
Robinson’s value is not that low, but the point remains that they are similar players. Both are elite shooters making too much money. The Heat would get off a couple of years if they traded Robinson for Bertans straight up, but they would be giving up the better player.
Dallas would have some interest in acquiring Robinson, but the Mavs would be most eager to do it in a three-team trade. They might even be able to get some sweetener for taking back his hefty contract, and the team has proven that shooters thrive playing off Luka Doncic. The Mavericks might even give up a second round pick to take him off the Heat's hands if they are willing to take Bertans.
Will the Miami Heat trade Duncan Robinson this summer? Does he end up on the Dallas Mavericks? Stay tuned to find out.
