The Dallas Mavericks made a blockbuster move Sunday afternoon, trading for the Brooklyn Nets’ controversial All-Star, Kyrie Irving.
But don’t think that will be all.
The front office is not finished exploring trade options to further reshape and upgrade the roster around 23-year-old franchise cornerstone Luka Doncic, a person familiar with the Mavericks’ thinking said less than an hour after news of the Irving trade broke.
What else could they do before the NBA’s 2 p.m. Thursday trade deadline?
Dallas has discussed options to move Tim Hardaway Jr., multiple people familiar with the Mavericks’ approach pre-Irving said.
Though he can boost the offense when in a shooting rhythm, Hardaway’s contract is viewed as a long-term investment that doesn’t justify his streaky high-volume production while limiting the Mavericks’ future financial flexibility.
