Mavs Interested in Trading Smith?

Smith on the Move?

NBA Execs Believe the Mavs are Willing to Part Ways with Smith Jr.

With the revelation that has been Luka Doncic, NBA executives believe that the Dallas Mavericks may be looking at making Dennis Smith Jr. available.

Smith was a lottery pick of the Mavericks and went onto have a very productive rookie campaign, almost immediately becoming one of the more explosive and athletic guards in the League. That being said, the Mavericks are allegedly skeptical of the backcourt pairing of Doncic and Smith, and with the play of Doncic, it seems like the Mavs prefer to hold onto the international star. The Mavs have told Marc Stein of The New York Times that they are not actively shopping Smith, although numerous names within the League believe that Dallas is gauging trade interest for the SMU alum.

When on the court simultaneously, the duo accumulates a minus-6.1 points per 100 possessions, compared to an overall average of plus-1.5 per 100 possessions.

Smith is averaging 13 points and four assists per game, but has been limited to only three games in December as he continues to nurse a nagging wrist injury.
