But seriously, who in their right mind would think Lamelo will be a good NBA player or even someone who you would pair up with Luka From what i saw how Lamelo plays in some 3rd grade Australian league, Luka would kick his ass out of the gym.
And why would this team give up on Maxi and DFS, who are becoming an integral part of this team?
Also, did people forget that Mavs won't rebuild through draft anymore? Instead they will focus on trades and FA signings.
Of course I’m a Mavs fan, but let’s be realistic- DFS and Maxi arent likely to make any all star games or all nba teams in the future, and 9/10 times a trade is won by who gets the best player in the deal, which a #1 pick would almost surely become.
Lamelo looks good, don’t discount overseas leagues... He looks better than Lonzo at that age, which is saying something (despite how much people want to dump on him). Personally, I’d still take Edwards over Ball for what it’s worth though.
To have a potential big 3 all under the age of 26, all the while clearing even more cap space for 2021, it would be a no brainer
He's playing in a league where an 80yo Bogut was MVP I'm from EU and i can tell you Australian league is nowhere close to top EU leagues. I've seen him being compared to Doncic for example, which should basically be a crime
25% from 3PT and needs to have ball in his hands to do something. From what i have seen he's an inefficient chucker. You really want to play Doncic off ball?
Again, DFS and Maxi are way too good to give up for an unproven rookie that will set you back 3-4 years. You just waste KP's and Doncic's early years of potential playoff experience.
I mean look, I would usually agree with you on the rebuild, but i'm just repeating what Mavs front office already told us before.
Doesn’t matter anyway. Golden State didn’t just throw away a year of basketball to end up with Wiggins, DFS, Maxi, and a non-lotto pick.
Like I said though, Edwards is the best player in the draft and you could even argue Wiseman as 2nd best over Lamelo. So if the Mavs somehow grabbed the Warriors pick and that’s all it required, they better take it and run with it like the Porzingis deal. This move would set up a potential dynasty having 3 talented young guys growing on the court each year plus the cap space we save
