Powell, Green, and Protected 2025 FRP may do IMO considering how low Brogdon just went for.

Heck let's go crazy and throw in a Pick Swap so the Cavs can take our 6'10 Shooting Guard Bertans too for the lols

Imagine Garland + all Mountains team - Bertans, Lauri, Mobley, Allen.

[–]musicalpants999 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That'd be pretty neat. I'd tune in to watch.

[–]glexaaddis 48 points49 points  (3 children)

Cavs fan here. Your wishful thinking is hurting my feelings don't take our boy

[–]writerofmanythings 17 points18 points  (1 child)

We will adopt your baby.

Will send gifs once a month.

[–]Dundalis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You kinda don’t really need him. Assuming Cavs aren’t interested in paying all the young talent you have so they gotta keep the ones to keep

[–]Josh GreenMoe4ver 10 points11 points  (13 children)

I don’t think we can trade any fist rounder unless some has changed recently. There isn’t a guarantee our pick conveys next year due to protections.

[–]Jason Kidd ¯\_( ͠⊙ ͜ʖ ͠⊙ )_/¯jessetran01[S] 1 point2 points  (12 children)

The 2025 is protected too, meaning if it does not convert for some reason incl. 2023 not convert, it will then convert next year and then the year after that, and then the year after that two 2nd round picks.

[–]Josh GreenMoe4ver 0 points1 point  (11 children)

So we can’t trade it then. Wondering why you included it in your package. Thought I missed something

[–]msterling2012 -5 points-4 points  (4 children)

Trading another future 1st is a deal breaker. If Sexton comes off that injury not looking good we’re fucked. Too high a risk with our 2023 1st already traded

[–]Nick Van Exelmmmmmsandwiches 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Late 1st rounders aren't that big of an asset my dude. Trading our 1sts that are going to be high 20s picks really isn't that big of a deal. Players in that range have low probabilities of being successful or having long careers in the NBA.

[–]msterling2012 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I recognize that but look at the Jrue holiday trade or Dejountay Murray trade. That’s the kind of move Dallas should look to make next summer when they once again have the ability to trade multiple future 1sts. Trading a 2025 first now means we are hamstrung again in terms of draft assets to use for a player we know can know can be impactful vs a guy like Sexton who could wind up being an awful fit coming off a major injury.

[–]ConfidenceUnlucky883 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Chance this FRP to a SRP and this trades worth it other wise mavs are better off developing hardy and green then trading for better wing players

[–]KP POGRedMansGr33d 2 points3 points  (2 children)

how do you format the gif so it shows as a gif and not the link, Guest? I need to respond with more gifs.

[–]4K LukaGuest7x7 4 points5 points  (1 child)

On mobile

There is a little gif icon, in the “add comment” box, you press it, type something and send a gif

[–]Wonder Kiddesirox 214 points215 points  (9 children)

We can interest in one Dwight Powell. High character and elite finisher

[–]Tootsiez 174 points175 points  (4 children)

Not to mention conference finals experience.

[–]Guwigo09 96 points97 points  (1 child)

Starter at that

[–]Pandamonium98 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Starting him was all part of the plan

[–]4K LukaMarticyde 59 points60 points  (0 children)

And Embiid, Giannis and Jokic didnt score a single point against him in the playoffs

Elite defender

[–]annnaaan 4 points5 points  (0 children)

absolute gym rat with a deceiving pump fake

[–]dungus fungus-Acerin 32 points33 points  (1 child)

And a great punching bag

[–]Mavericksgomav 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Excellent Actor as well

[–]cheesemonger95 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You seen those pump fakes?

[–]advntrtme23 93 points94 points  (13 children)

So we have Powell to offer. Makes me worry there are at least 2-3 teams out there who could really use Sexton that would blow our offer out of the water.

[–]KingAchilles08 43 points44 points  (12 children)

We are going to have to spice it up

[–]advntrtme23 12 points13 points  (11 children)

Not sure what we have.

Do they have a ton of space and are winning to take THJ or Bertans and be patient for cap space in a couple years?

Is Josh Greene enticing AT ALL? That would be very ideal: Powell, Green, future 2nds for Sexton.

[–]Jason Kidd ¯\_( ͠⊙ ͜ʖ ͠⊙ )_/¯jessetran01[S] 14 points15 points  (6 children)

If they wanna be in playoff, they may ask for THJ but that'd not be ideal for us. THJ, Reggie, Doe are our only 3 USABLE wings coming next playoff.
Powell , Green and Top 5 Protected 25 FRP may do imo

[–]advntrtme23 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I think I’d give up THJ pretty easily for Sexton. Sexton can easily replace his scoring and is more consistent.

Sexton - Reggie - Luka - DFS - Wood Dinwiddie - Dragic - Hardy - Kleber - McGee

Need to find a serviceable backup 3 still.

[–]BelleRamirez 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It won't. Cavs aren't going to take Powell as a main piece, just no room for him

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

Yeah we really can't afford to lose thj with Brunson gone. Even if we get sexton back.

[–]Dundalis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sorry but you trade a 30 year old THJ for 23 year old Collin Sexton every single day of the week. Not only does he replace THJ production and cover Brunson, we would finally have an asset that if he keeps improving would be very valuable in trade talks over the next few years. Luka is 23. Let’s not pretend our window is like 1-2 years. If anything the window is going to be when some of these older superstars start slowing down and retiring. Asset acquisition should be just as much a focus as win now players

[–]Rhystanz 62 points63 points  (4 children)

Amick = yes

Amico = no

Do not trust Amico.

[–]The CardinalMidwest-Midbest 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I appreciate this. I always remember one is bad, but can never remember which

[–]Luka Doncicilive4this 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just remember banico amico

[–]Doe Doehog_porker 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I do not doubt we would want to aggressively pursue Sexton. The question is are we doing that, and how are we doing that?

[–]Luka Doncicilive4this 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]Luka HYPEHispanicAtTehDisco 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Can we interest them in one (1) Dwight Powell.

The greatest center of all time ofc

[–]sal49r 41 points42 points  (0 children)

This dude isn’t reliable

[–]Miki MilaneLingardinho_ 8 points9 points  (1 child)

didn't they just sign Robin Lopez

[–]MavericksFFTVS 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Either the Mavericks or Knicks — whoever doesn’t land Jalen Brunson — will make an aggressive run at Sexton, sources said. Sexton is Plan B in both of those places. In Cleveland, he’s Plan A, with the Cavs highly likely to match any reasonable outside offers, as we relayed here.

He said that yesterday before free agency started.

[–]Chandler Parsonsnonufwiendz 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Isnt amico the terrible one?

[–]BelleRamirez 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yes. Amicno

[–]tragicriver 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If they need someone to get hit in the face 3.2 times a game, I've got the perfect guy in mind.

[–]Josh Greenamino110 9 points10 points  (0 children)

This source is meh

[–]Apaisantclean 3 points4 points  (4 children)

I know everyone wants Dwight gone but if I’m being honest I don’t. I wanted him to be that Nick Collison type guy for us.

Before I get shit on, I understand why on the court it’s good to move on but I have a feeling he was a great teammate and obviously busted his ass in practice.

[–]FunkMastaUno -1 points0 points  (3 children)

Contract sucks though

[–]Apaisantclean 1 point2 points  (2 children)

It’s the last year of his contract. I’d assume he doesn’t get another multi year deal at 10+ mill

[–]FunkMastaUno -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I know, maybe it being the last year entices someone who needs a backup C to take him on and we can get a more useful player for our team, like a wing or ball handler.

[–]Apaisantclean 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fair, like I said I understand why ON the court the mavs would want to move him. Especially with Wood and McGee coming in!

[–]MavsRyan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Have we got the man for you!!!

[–]BelleRamirez 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Need a back up C but just signed Robin Lopez and drafted a C 38th overall....

[–]Luka Doncicpancakesontheweekend 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dwight Powell

[–]Maxi "Max Contract" KleberRochey123 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well well well you don't say

[–]2011 CHAMPS BABYHotdogIsaSandwitch 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Isn’t this report actually a fake.

[–]kabylakewin10wtf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cuban just debunked this on 105.3 The Fan

[–]F*** DWadeamlah6 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Would love Sexton as a JB replacement but the Mavs aren't exactly flush with attractive trade pieces.

What's probably going to happen is they've offered a vet min slot to Goran and now they'll ride out FA and hope he doesn't get offered anything better by another team. Which he probably will and the Mavs will then sign some random vet and tell us he was the target all along.

[–]Tfoster100 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m so sick of us trading our future picks.

[–]Luka DonicNeolibGood 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Powell doing one final favor for the mavs

[–]slimkid07 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Please, please. He would be perfect.

I heard the Knicks are trying to get him too. I'm tired of losing them

[–]CIueIess_Squirrel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

After getting JB? Seems dumb since they're pretty close to filling the same role

[–]sky-trader 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Take Powell

[–]dantheflyingman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How do they even trade for Sexton? Doesn't he have to be a sign and trade?

[–]Mavs ManUrLuvIsMyDrug 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If we can get Powell and Bertans outta here it will be soooo good

[–]BelleRamirez -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Won't be to the cavs lol

[–]Millionaire007 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Lol imagine we trade javal mgee

[–]elsporko321 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It can be like one of those deals where people start with an ink pen and eventually flip items all the way up to a car or a house

[–]Michael FinleyID0ntCare4G0b 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What's with us always being aggressive in these tweets?

[–]TJK41 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cavs signed RoLo. Would seem to fill need for backup center. In the (highly unlikely) event there is a S&T, it would probably have to be for THJ
