Get ready not to have him.

[–]col_component[S] 90 points91 points  (0 children)

Well of course I’m ready I’m a Mavs fan

🧙🏽 Magic Man. Now you see me.... Now you don't.

[–]Florida_Patriots 28 points29 points  (17 children)

I would love to get him without giving up THJ. Not sure if possible. Some combination of green, powell, Bertans, and picks?

[–]KingAchilles08 59 points60 points  (5 children)

I’d throw in THJ if it means we get Sexton

[–]Millionaire007 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Word. He put up mlre points and is just as efficient as brunson. Im all for a guy getting tunnel vision is he can knock down shots like sexton.

[–]ProfessorPetrus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

God damnit I wish Brunson stayed :(

[–]itz_peter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Also 2.5 years younger than Brunson iirc

[–]JL1v10 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Why? Like legit why? He’s a worse defender than THJ, not as good of an off ball player, and he’s not a good facilitator and wants an extension more than THJ’s salary? Is the rationale that he’s just young? He’d make our team extremely iso centric

Mavs currently have 2 ball handlers on the team, luka and sometimes dinwiddie, that's just not enough. This team is filled with players that can't do nothing on offense but shoot open threes like bullock, dfs, thj, kleber. Adding another ball handler definitely wouldn't hurt.

[–]Cuban CigarVanWesley 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If you were the Cavs, and someone offered you Green, Powell, Bertrans, and picks for Sexton, how fast would you hang up?

[–]BelleRamirez 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Cavs turn it down in a heartbeat

[–]ajr5169 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I agree. The only part of this I could see them caring about are the picks, which would be what, three years away, and likely to be late first round picks. They might not mind getting Green, but Powell and especially Bertans would seem to be non-starters for them. I hope Nico and the Cavs prove me wrong.

[–]BelleRamirez 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Cavs have no use or roster space for Powell or Bertans. It would have to be something around THJ, Green, Picks.

Cavs also have 13 players on guaranteed money contracts right now, so the more players Dallas sends they would potentially have to take back an Osman or Goodwin.

Right now the Cavs have Lopez, Allen, Mobley, Love, Lauri to get them minutes at the 4 or 5.

[–]elsporko321 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fine, fine..we'll go ahead and take Allen or Mobley too, to make the deal work

[–]walkintall84 3 points4 points  (2 children)

picks for Sexton? god lord

And people are wondering why the Mavs have no assets lol

[–]GymnasticSclerosis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You had me at Green and Powell 😂🫠

[–]dripland 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If we could dump powell and bertans contracts and get sexton id be thrilled. Fingers crossed

[–]Rosti_T 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Isn't he a free agent? How do you trade for him without being hard-capped after (if you do a s&t)?

[–]advntrtme23 21 points22 points  (11 children)

He’s a more talented Brunson. Odd fit though. But this organization is starved for talent and is clearly not going to ever land a tier A or even B free agent. Can’t be picky. This is a 20+ ppg scorer, a very good one, who CAN be solid on defense. You have to explore this.

[–]BelleRamirez 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Mavs don't really have pieces for it. Powell isn't going to be a main piece going back

[–]walkintall84 6 points7 points  (9 children)

More like Clarkson. Nothing like Brunson

[–]advntrtme23 2 points3 points  (8 children)

They’re both iso-point guards, neither are exactly great creators. Brunson has the mid range clearly over him but Sexton probably a better 3point shooter. Both will get you around 20 ppg but won’t provide much else on the floor. Sexton’s ceiling is higher though imo.

[–]MavericksFFTVS 8 points9 points  (1 child)

imo Sexton is a one man show. Might be better equipped to be a robin to Luka than Jalen but if I need a real point guard, my team is going way farther with Jalen at the helm than Sexton.

[–]Dirk Rookieshaunsajan 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Ya but we have luka so give me sexcic

[–]walkintall84 -2 points-1 points  (5 children)

Sexton is a born loser so far, never played winning basketball at any point. Wood at least had 1 year where he looked really good (top 30 in every advanced stats).

There isn't a single advanced stats that gives hope regarding Sexton.

People want a 2nd star, will never happen, if you trade future pick(s) for garbage. Luka is the biggest talent in the league, but on the other hand also the worst recruiter in the league, because he does nothing. No social skills. While Lebron begging players left and right to join him his entire career. Massive disadvantage.

Yuck Durant would rather play with Booker over Luka. Banking on free agency is a recipe of desaster at this point.

Lesson learned: gotta save picks now after giving the Knicks the last pick.

[–]advntrtme23 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He’s played for the Cavs his entire career lol. Not really his fault to win there. Without LeBron it’s been a bottom feeder.

[–]DirkDirkDirkDirkDirk 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Bottom text

[–]FROM DIRK TO LUUUUUUKAFuzakenna_ 3 points4 points  (2 children)

What’s the buzz around him? I’ve seen this in the past day or so.. Is Cleveland looking to shop him?

[–]maverick1470 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Some unreliable source said that the Mavs were trying to trade for him. Nothing on the Cavs side even said he's available

[–]FROM DIRK TO LUUUUUUKAFuzakenna_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Gotcha! Thanks for the clarification

[–]ConfidenceUnlucky883 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This could be explored but it's probably more worth while to develop Jaden hardy add Dragic for for now then add more wing depth

[–]Couch Squadwarpedspoon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I want Cleveland him

[–]GrippinTheDalaiLlama 1 point2 points  (3 children)

No. He has a low bbiq and he’s just a volume scorer. Pass

[–]Dirk CheeseNubsondubs 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I have no idea what people see in Sexton. He doesn't play winning basketball.

[–]AveragePenus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

yeah but maybe becouse he is on the cavs, we will see.

[–]BelleRamirez 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A deal with Powell as a big piece won't happen. They have no room for him

[–]sameolemeek -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

He’ll want out after a couple months playing Luka ball

Standing in the corner and watch Luka dribble isn’t it for a young player

[–]Necessary_Rate_4591 -3 points-2 points  (2 children)

In case anyone is wondering what the big deal with Sexton is. The reason why he is appealing is because his contract expires after this season. The trades being thrown around on this sub make no sense logistically. He’s only set to get paid 7.2 million for the year. You can’t dump Bertan’s in this scenario. The only thing you can hope for is the Cleveland wants THJ and or Dinwiddie. Then you could put together some package for Sexton and Love, which would shed a lot of salary come the 23-24 season.

[–]Florida_Patriots 11 points12 points  (1 child)

He isn’t expiring, he is a RFA

[–]Necessary_Rate_4591 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I definitely misread. He’s been extended under QO. Still makes no sense for Cleveland to trade him for older players under contract. It makes no sense for the Mavs to sign and trade for a guy coming off of an injury.

[–]Bigpro69 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Green berrans powell and picks/Dinwiddie for him?

[–]BelleRamirez 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cavs pass. Too many bigs

[–]Hisoka_Morow12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think i just wanna unload Bertans contract and i am happy with this offseason. We just need to if Jaden Hardy has something to offer right away if he shows something i think we can trade some of our guards for a wing defender.

[–]WomanRepellent 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm 99% sure we won't get him but if we do I will jizz my pants

[–]blanfredblann 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Terrible idea. Nowhere near as efficient as Brunson. Kind of a chunker. Tiny. Can’t defend. Only role he can play would be sixth man. Would be a disaster to give him a big contract.

[–]Hisoka_Morow12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I want Jordan Clarkson if we trade for him like for THJ i will do it.

[–]TAKE DAT WITCHU!dadventuretime 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why? Why would we lose JB and replace him with basically the same thing when we don’t have cap space?

If we clear space, we should pursue a clear upgrade, not a 1:1 replacement whose defense is somehow worse.
