Should the Dallas Mavericks trade for Myles Turner?
The Mavs are facing an interesting dilemma in any potential trade. They owe their 2023 first-round pick to the New York Knicks from the original Kristaps Porzingis deal with a top-ten protection. Assuming it conveys, Dallas will have all their first-round selections moving forward.
Waiting could open up a move for a superstar, but can the Mavericks afford it? Luka Doncic starts his rookie max extension this season, so the clock is ticking to build an annual title contender around the 23-year-old superstar.
Is Turner worth giving up a first-round pick? Yes, but Dallas should avoid doing it because having all their firsts opens the door for a blockbuster next summer.
Myles Turner is one of the best shot blockers in the NBA, and he has a unique offensive skill set. Teams across the league would love to add the 6’10 big man at the right price. Can someone get the Pacers to lower their mark? It is a storyline to watch as the regular season approaches.
The Dallas Mavericks would like to upgrade their roster before February’s trade deadline, but can they find the right deal? Expect general manager Nico Harrison to keep working the phones, even if things never materialize. The best is still yet to come from Luka and the Mavs, so stay tuned.
