Brooklyn Nets Receive: C Kristaps Porzingis, F Maxi Kleber
Dallas Mavericks Receive: G Spencer Dinwidde (sign-and-trade), G/F Joe Harris, C DeAndre Jordan, 2022 second-round pick, 2025 second-round pick (via GSW)
Kristaps Porzingis has been a headache and that could continue in Dallas. This could persuade the front office to make another blockbuster deal involving the big man.
Porzingis and Maxi Kleber would be going to Nets in this deal and he would add to the star-power already on the roster with Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving. This would be a way to capitalize on the departure of Spencer Dinwiddie without losing that salary cap space.
Porzingis still has a ton of value around him despite some injury woes. Dinwiddie will certainly be part of the deal. He has been the Nets’ biggest trade piece recently mentioned in NBA trade rumors as a sign-and-trade option. If the Mavericks miss out on Kyle Lowry, he could be an option to pursue.
Joe Harris, who was nonexistent during the postseason, and DeAndre Jordan would be going to Dallas, along with some draft capital. The Mavericks would continue to hold onto a sharpshooter and would take on Jordan for salary purpose.
This NBA trade scenario would unravel quickly if Spencer Dinwiddie were to decide to sign with a team other than the Dallas Mavericks in NBA free agency. He is a player the team has their eyes on and they have the money to spend to get it done.
Let’s take a closer look and see how this NBA trade scenario centered around Kristaps Porzingis would benefit both the Brooklyn Nets and Dallas Mavericks.
