Trade Dallas Mavericks should make after Jalen Brunson's departure: 5. Wing from Nets

Kevin Durant requested a trade out of Brooklyn, and Kyrie Irving will likely be sent packing at some point this offseason. The Nets could be facing a total rebuild heading into the 2022-2023 season, which is scary because the Rockets own the majority of their draft picks from the James Harden deal.

Brooklyn reportedly wants to include Joe Harris in a potential Kyrie trade with the Lakers, so could Dallas swoop in and land the 6’6 wing?

The Mavs would love to open up roster space, add a wing, and trade Davis Bertans' contract. The 6’10 forward is an elite shooter, but he is owed $38 million over the next three seasons combined.

Brooklyn is likely headed for a rebuild, and they should be searching for young talent and draft picks. Josh Green took a step forward in his second season, but he must improve his offensive game to be able to handle a massive workload. The Nets also grab a first-round pick for taking on Bertans’ contract.

Joe Harris averaged 14.1 points on 50.5 percent shooting from the field and 47.5 percent on his 3-point tries during the 2020-2021 season. He is an elite shooter and floor spacer that is coming off a lost year. The Mavericks buy low on a sharpshooting wing that should thrive playing off Luka Doncic.
