Sometimes the best trades are not the big NBA blockbuster deals that get everyone talking. There are situations when a trade would help each side in multiple ways without needing to make a major splash. That is what we would have here between the Dallas Mavericks and Detroit Pistons.

Dallas is a team looking to take the next step in the Western Conference. They have two solidified stars in Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. Doncic is an NBA MVP-candidate this season while Porzingis is trying to get healthy so he could make an impact.

It has been discussed internally about adding another star to their roster. The Mavericks could use another piece if they want to contend in a very difficult conference.

The Pistons are a team with plenty of veteran options they would be able to send in a trade. Detroit was busy in the offseason adding names like Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee. They have veteran players such as Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose who could be used in trades. In this particular one, Rose would be sent to Dallas to team up with Luka Doncic.

This would create a solid backcourt in Dallas. Let’s take a closer look and see how this deal would workout between both sides.
