Despite Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving’s outstanding performances, the Dallas Mavericks failed to win the championship this year and lost the NBA Finals series against the Boston Celtics. Since then, the team has been focused on upgrading the roster with new talented players.

According to recent reports from NBA Insider Michael Scotto for HoopsHype, the Mavericks are looking to make a trade proposal with the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets to bring two amazing players to the team. Specifically, the Mavericks are interested in acquiring Dennis Smith Jr. and Spencer Dinwiddie.

“The Dallas Mavericks have considered bringing one of two former guards back to the team, Spencer Dinwiddie and Dennis Smith Jr, league sources told HoopsHype…Should Dinwiddie and Smith Jr. land elsewhere, Malachi Flynn is also on Dallas’ radar, HoopsHype has learned. Flynn scored a career-high 50 points last season with Detroit.” Scotto wrote in his latest reports.

Smith Jr. signed a contract with the Nets on July 8, 2023. The 26-year-old point guard did not make a significant impact on the team’s success. According to ESPN, he averaged 6.6 points, 3.6 assists, and 2.9 rebounds in 56 games in the 2023-24 season. Meanwhile, Dinwiddie signed with the Los Angeles Lakers on a one-year deal worth the league minimum in February 2024. According to ESPN, the 31-year-old point guard averaged 6.8 points, 2.4 assists, and 0.5 rebounds in 28 games this season.

NBA Insider spills details on Dallas Mavericks’ deal with Klay Thompson

The Mavericks have made a great move by adding Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson to the team, despite his dad’s disapproval of the contract. By adding Smith Jr. and Dinwiddie to the roster, they can significantly impact the team’s performance. However, before agreeing to the Mavericks’ contract, Thompson issued a last request to star player Stephen Curry about the team.

Even though the deal has not been completed yet, many NBA analysts are speculating about the contract. Recently, NBA Insider Chris Haynes reported that “Golden State is receiving two second-round picks to complete the Klay Thompson sign-and-trade: Dallas’ 2031 pick and the least favorable of the Denver/Philadelphia picks in 2025.”
