Activity in trade talks until the trade deadline

Moderators: Texas Chuck, Dirk, HMFFL

How aggresive should Dallas be on the trade market until the trade deadline (March 25th)?

Maybe they're really trying to make a deal?

I'm really getting fed up with him, no matter what anyone says. At some point i do hope they make a trade because he's letting down entire team with his antics.

He just got back, they were SLOWLY getting in to the rhythm and after 8 days break, he needs more break because he has a new injury. I bet after he gets back, he will need another 10 games to get his shot back :banghead:

I don't know, this injury looks funny to me. Back tightness after almost 10 days without a game?

Is Markkanen ever healthy?
Chicago has a nice young group. Billy Donovan won't just want to give them.up for nothing because he can get this group in the postseason after another off season. Markkanen could possibly be available but he won't be cheap. I don't think KP fills a need for Chicago.


Lavine has been on record saying that him and Coach Donovan have been building their chemistry. I don't see us being able to acquire him or anyone of value on Chicago by trade.

I dont see how an empty stats, no D player like Lavine is the perfect running mate. he's essentially a young Kevin Martin. I respectfully disagree on Lauri too, he's good for some good offensive games here and there, but his D negates it. If we make a trade with Chi, it should be for Carter.

My ideal targets would be Siakam or Capela, but those arent happening.


That’s part of the whole process of bringing in someone new to this team, who’s available. I’d love to add Siakam and/or Capela too but like you said, they’re not available. There are a lot of guys I’d like to add that aren’t available.

So the Mavs have to go with who is available and unfortunately not everyone that’s available will be a great fit. I don’t know if Levine is actually available or not but parts of his game actually do mesh very well with Luka’s game.

So the Mavs can’t just say, he’s not a perfect fit so we don’t want him. We know KP isn’t working right now. So even if it means acquiring a guy that may not be a perfect fit, at least he will be a better fit than KP. At the end of the day the Mavs may not be in any better position than they are now but at least they’re trying.

It goes beyond him not being a perfect fit though. he doesnt contribute to winning basketball. Thats why i view him like Kevin martin, great stats, zero relation to wins or team success

You’re not wrong but the Mavs still have to find a way to improve the team and standing pat with KP doesn’t seem to be working. Any trade involving KP is not going to be perfect.

Part of me still feels that Wendell Carter is involved considering how high the Mavs were on him in the draft.

Also part of me wonders if the Mavs will attach guys like Maxi and/or Brunson to KP in order to move him.

It is my personal belief that there will always be a young team that can "wait out" for KP. Some team out of the playoff seeding who could use a young 25 year old star next year when he is fully healthy. Some team that doesnt need KP back as early as next week.

Although that Golden State rumor with James Wiseman intrigues me. I mean Cuban could do the Warriors a solid and send them KP and make them jump back into contention. That will be a huge roadblock for Lebron James' bid for a back to back.

All this put Mavs in really bad position, if they try to move KP. They owe to Knicks 2 first picks and will need to attach someone to move him. I wonder if moving him now is really the right way to go.

Completely not feasible for the Mavs to "dump" KP with those two picks outstanding. They have to get some player or prospect of substance back to be any point in trading. Otherwise, might as well keep KP and see if he can get back in form.

No way they DUMP him. But if someone offered us someone that could fit as Luka’s sidekick better than KP could, then Dallas should do it sooner rather than later. I think we have a large enough sample size to say the fit isn’t there, but no one in their right mind would ever trade Luka. If Mavs could get someone like Lavine, Turner, or Wiseman then I think it’s an easy decision

I dont know how much Bulls value Marknanen but I dont think they’d trade Lavine. He just made the allstar team. A perimeter star player of their team. Why would they trade that to a big men with a lot of injurn concerns. They do not look like tanking so there is no intencive the do that trade for Bulls.

Yeah, Lavine stock is at all time high, KP stock is at all time low, no one would trade Lavine for KP ATM.
