The Dallas Mavericks acted as the desperate franchise trying to help out it’s otherworldly star in Luka Doncic. Breaking: Kyrie Irving has been traded to the Dallas Mavericks.

According to my Twitter notifications, Shams Charania, broke the news first. The Mavericks have made another swing for a superstar to pair along side Luka Doncic, and this is certainly a big swing.

Dallas dealt Spencer Dinwiddie (back to Brooklyn LOL), Dorian Finney-Smith, a 2029 unprotected first, and a second round pick in both 2027 and 2029. All of which are not real years, so it’s almost as if those draft picks don’t exist.

Just a couple of days ago, Shams broke the news that Irving wanted out of Brooklyn after contract extension negotiations broke down. The Nets really had one of the best offenses in the history of the NBA play together for just 16 games. Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving all requested trades in a 13 month span, and now Durant is the only one left in the borough.

For the Mavericks, this probably makes them a better team if, and that’s a big IF, Kyrie Irving can somewhat keep it together through the playoffs? That’s a huge ask of a guy that hasn’t been able to keep it all together for the last, I don’t know, let’s say three years?

With the Mavericks beating out the Los Angeles Lakers in the Kyrie “sweepstakes”, they should be in firm standing to make the playoffs in the top six seeds. With Luka Doncic, you always have a shot, and now they have Kyrie with Christian Wood. The offense will be extraordinary, but the defense will be questionable to say the least.

Obviously, Dallas hopes that Kyrie’s off the court problems will lessen by being surrounded by people he may listen to. Kyrie and Nico Harrison were buddies when they both were at Nike, and it’s been said that Jason Kidd and Kyrie will get along just fine. There aren’t many people that can keep him together, but maybe this is the right fit.

Another ordeal is the Mavericks trading Luka’s favorite teammate in Dorian Finney-Smith. They’re still stuck with Tim Hardaway Jr. and Davis Bertans’ gross contracts, and now have Kyrie and Wood coming up as free agents.

This is now the second big swing the Mavericks have taken for a star that may or may not fit next to Luka.

The biggest winners of this trade? The Houston Rockets own pretty much every draft pick until eternity from the Brooklyn Nets. Who’s to say that Kevin Durant doesn’t ask out before the deadline, or again this summer? The NBA is the best reality TV show in the world.

Kyrie Irving has been traded to the Dallas Mavericks in hopes that Luka can lead them through the playoffs with no off the court nonsense from Irving.
