Nets trade Kyrie Irving to Mavericks
Nets have ignored alternatives including the Lakers and Clippers, and gone direct to the Mavericks, offloading Kyrie Irving and Markieff Morris for Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith, a 2029 FRP and seconds from 2027 and 2029.
Morris has been averaging 4 PPG and 2 RPG and only getting occasional minutes.
Risky move for the Mavs under pressure to ease the workload of Doncic. Too risky?
Seems great for the Nets - getting two useful players plus picks, including the 2029 FRP which comes a couple of years after Doncic's deal ends.
This should be entertaining at least.
