Former Dallas Mavericks who changed teams this offseason: Moses joins Clippers

Moses Brown came to Dallas in the Josh Richardson trade. After one season, the Mavericks realized J-Rich was not the perfect fit around Luka Doncic, so they traded him to Boston for Brown and a trade exception. Dallas never used the exception, and Brown was waived just seven months after arriving.

The 22-year-old big man earned a training camp invite from the LA Clippers this offseason. Brown will need to excel in the preseason to find himself on their regular season roster. If not, he likely ends up playing for the Ontario Clippers in the G League.

Former Dallas Mavericks who changed teams this offseason: WCS goes to Houston

The Mavs traded for Willie Cauley-Stein in 2020 after Dwight Powell went down with an Achilles injury, but he only played 13 games before the pandemic halted the season. Trill did not accompany Dallas to the bubble as he stayed back awaiting the birth of his first child.

He played parts of three seasons with the Mavericks before being waived in Jan. 2022. After leaving Dallas, Cauley-Stein played just two games on a ten-day contract with the Sixers before again becoming a free agent.

Willie Cauley-Stein signed a training camp deal with the Rockets this offseason, and the seven-footer will be battling with the four former Mavericks who were traded to Houston in the Christian Wood deal for the Rockets' final roster spots.
