If Ball or Edwards fell to No. 5, would you all trade the 2021 Dallas pick to move up?

For Edwards yes. For Ball No.
I'm a maybe. The Knicks would really have to have faith in the FO/scouts about LaMelo's upside. Or Edwards.
I'd consider swapping 8 for 5 and giving up the Mavs 2021 though, for either player, easily, especially Ball, who has a higher bust chance than Edwards.
So, the team getting that pick gets a draft pick at 23\24 - trying to acknowledge the Mavs will be good, but not great, especially in the West. In a "double draft", even though the great\potential impact players are said to go all the way down to 12 or 15, I'd assume strong players, stronger than usual are available in the teens/twenties.
Of course, that's also an argument for keeping that pick for the Knicks
