Trade target the Dallas Mavericks should be exploring: 4. Grizzlies duo

In August, it was reported by Chris Fedor of that both Kyle Anderson and Dillon Brooks were available via trade. The Grizzlies had a roster crunch at that time, but they are one of the most active teams in the league and are still searching for the right pieces to build a contender around Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr.

Anderson is playing just 21.1 minutes per game so far this season, but Slo-Mo is shooting 41.7 percent from 3-point range. His jumper continues to improve, and he is a versatile forward that can handle the ball. The Mavericks need another playmaker and would love to add Kyle Anderson.

Brooks has played in just four games after a broken hand sidelined him for the early part of the season, but he averaged over 17 points per game last year and is one of the league’s best perimeter defenders. The 6’7 wing has slowed down Luka Doncic on a few occasions when the Mavs and Grizzlies have matched up.

The Dallas Mavericks would love to add more shooting and defense as they gear up for the playoffs. Trades for Kyle Anderson and/or Dillon Brooks are worth exploring as both men could help any contending team.
