Another thing to note is this makes signing Giannis (or another All Star PF) a must next summer. If KP will have knee soreness from time to time and sit in stretches, you're going to need another all star who can help out. Or your whole season is out the window.

Heck, get Joel Embiid have have him and KP play 40 games each and load manage off each other.

Guys I know they are different players, but remember the 2003 WCF when Dirk was sat? Turned out really good in the long run

You hate to see it. I love Porzingis, but if the health is this questionable, we might need to pursue other options this summer. Reliability in the playoffs has to be a priority

KP for Giannis sounds good right about now.

Milwaukee would laugh at that. Is Karl-Anthony Towns disgruntled enough to demand out of Minnesota?

Considering they just traded for his boy and got the #1 pick, I wouldn’t bet on it. I would at least call on Embiid though. Philly would probably dump salary on us to take him. Maybe Porzingis, Hardaway, 18th for Embiid + Tobias

I think Rick would get a long with Embiid about the same way he got along with the other big guy we got from the Sixers a few years ago.
I'd be looking at trading Porzingis and #18 for Beal.

No way of knowing. At least you can tell Embiid cares about winning. It was obvious Nerlens just wanted to get paid. Doesn’t matter though. KP isn’t going anywhere and that’s fine. They really gotta figure out how to manage this knee better though, I have a sinking feeling inside that this could be an every postseason type thing

Id take kp over Beal 100 times out 100 so ill pass

Noel’s agent bailed the Mavericks out.

We actually for once 100% agree. Beal is an iso scorer primarily and a bad defender, KP is a defensive game changer with unicorn offense. Not even close enough to consider this let alone giving up a pick.

Since both teams have never met in the playoffs in over 45+ years, the refs and whole NBA are aware of an unprecedented 85% chance of occurring this year.

Morale is gone. So is the miracle once the Mavs notice that there's no more KP the rest of the way. The Mavs surrender on both end and has lost a step.

I think the Mavs should pull Doncic off the floor. The Mavs doesn't want to play anyway.

They have a lot of ground to cover in one quarter there is no way to proceed but to rest the starters and give the bench more minutes

Return to Dallas Mavericks
