Dallas Mavericks player who might not finish season with team: 1. Moses Brown

Moses Brown is at the top of the list in part because of the Mavs glut of big men. The 21-year-old is likely behind Kristaps Porzingis, Dwight Powell, Willie Cauley-Stein, and Boban Marjanovic in the center pecking order to start training camp. It will be difficult for Brown to find any playing time.

There is also some question as to how much the Mavericks wanted the 7’2 big man in the Josh Richardson trade. Let Keith Smith explain further below.

Brown is a talented prospect that had a 20-point 20-rebound game against the Celtics last season, and it was fantastic to hear that he is working with Tyson Chandler to improve his game, but the Mavericks want to win now. If it means giving by Brown to acquire a secondary ball-handler, Dallas should do it in a second.

Moses Brown is likely to be traded before the deadline. Rebuilding teams will be intrigued by the talented 21-year-old big man, and the Mavericks will jump at the chance to add another rotation piece for their playoff run. They are determined to get past the first round, and trading Brown may be the key to making it a reality.
