Should the Dallas Mavericks trade for Myles Turner?
The Mavs need an upgrade at the five, and that alone should have them interested in Turner. He is not the perfect fit next to Kristaps Porzingis, but the 6’11 big man would allow Dallas to have a strong rim protector on the floor at all times.
The price always matters when making a trade. Indiana appears committed to rebuilding, so they are likely to trade Turner to the highest bidder before the Feb. 10 deadline. The Mavericks owe their 2023 first-round pick to the Knicks from the KP deal, so they are limited in their tradeable assets. If the Pacers can get multiple first-round picks for Turner, that could knock Dallas out of the running.
Myles Turner is a Texas native, and he frequently works out in Dallas during the offseason. He would be making a homecoming if the Mavericks traded for him. The 25-year-old is under contract for $18 million next season, and acquiring him gives the organization flexibility to further shake things up in the offseason.
The Dallas Mavericks are going to have interest in Myles Turner. Will they be able to acquire the 6’11 big man from the Pacers? Expect the team to be active and aggressive, and fans should stay tuned to The Smoking Cuban for all the latest rumors, news, and analysis.
