Dallas Mavericks Receive: G Kyrie Irving
Brooklyn Nets Receive: C Kristaps Porzingis, G Trey Burke, 2022 Second-Round Pick
Both teams are swapping out players that they would seemingly like to move on from. As the adage goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. That would be the outlook in a deal like this.
The Dallas Mavericks would like to hold a 100-percent vaccination rate among their players, but regardless, if a chance to add a talent like Kyrie Irving is available, that’s an opportunity that must be capitalized on.
There is a thought that Irving could look to retire if he were traded by the Nets. However, it’s worth contemplating whether that will still be the case after ruling him out indefinitely.
The Mavericks do not face any issue with local vaccination mandates from the city of Dallas or the state of Texas. It’s difficult to forecast external factors, but that’s worth mentioning.
