New York Knicks Willing to ‘Do Right’ By Derrick Rose; Dallas Mavs Trade Makes Sense – NBA Rumor Tracker

New York Knicks Willing to ‘Do Right’ By Derrick Rose; Dallas Mavs Trade Makes Sense – NBA Rumor Tracker

JAN 14 Can the Mavs get D-Rose?

Since losing Jalen Brunson to the New York Knicks last summer, the Dallas Mavericks have been unable to add a third point guard capable of filling some of the void created by his departure. However, with the Feb. 9 trade deadline approaching, could Dallas finally address that need by dealing one of Brunson’s teammates?

According to a report from NBA reporter Marc Stein, the Knicks are apparently willing to ‘do right’ by 15-year veteran and former MVP Derrick Rose before the deadline.

Sources say New York is open to finding a new home via trade for former MVP Derrick Rose, but only if it can, as one insider put it, “get it right” with the longtime favorite of Thibodeau. Rose’s role has been significantly reduced this season with the likes of Quickley, Quentin Grimes and Miles McBride showing up.

In theory, one way for the Knicks to deal Rose would be to send him to the Mavs, where he would have a bigger role on a team that finishes with home-court advantage in the Western Conference. Since New York has fond memories of Reggie Bullock, a straight trade for Rose would make sense for both sides.

It remains to be seen if the Knicks’ willingness to do Rose a favor would outweigh any hard feelings they may have toward the Mavs after last summer’s drama … but it’s something we keep it in mind.

JAN 13 Collins price lowered; Mavs-Knicks trade idea

Earlier this week, a report stated that the Atlanta Hawks were looking to receive a return similar to what the Utah Jazz received for Rudy Gobert last summer when it comes to potentially trading John Collins. According to a report from USA Today on Friday, that may not be the case after all.

The Hawks are willing to move forward John Collins for a big shot, which is … what Collins is. Or it used to be. Collins shot 40.1% from three-point range in 2019-2020, 39.9% the following season and 36.4% last season. But he’s only at 22.9% this season.

There is a market for Collins, and it includes Utah, Brooklyn and Dallas.

If the Dallas Mavericks can’t agree on a contract extension with versatile big man Christian Wood before the Feb. 9 trade deadline, perhaps making a play for Collins would make sense.

Or … if the Mavs could find a way to add Collins and another piece from Atlanta — like Bogdan Bogdanovic — without giving up Wood, that would be even more ideal.

Meanwhile, the reported trade price for New York Knicks forward Cam Reddish is apparently two second-round picks. A straight trade for Mavs forward Reggie Bullock would work financially, and it could be a deal the Knicks would be interested in making given coach Tom Thibodeau’s admiration for Bullock.

JAN 12 No Mavs interest in Myles Turner?

Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner has been in trade rumors for a few years now, but he has yet to be shipped out of the Hoosier State.

The Dallas native has been linked to the Mavericks in the past, but no deal has surfaced to move him to his hometown team.

In a report Thursday by Jake Fischer of Yahoo! Sports, the Mavericks’ interest in Turner has apparently ‘dissolved’.

“The trade talks surrounding Turner really seemed to have cooled. For years, the Hornets presented a possible landing spot. But right now, Charlotte doesn’t seem too inclined to upgrade its roster before the deadline. Interest from Dallas and New Orleans at times The last few seasons have also spread, sources said,” Fischer wrote.

With Dallas’ focus more on another star or more quality players to slot alongside Luka Doncic, the desire for Turner, who is on an expiring contract, makes sense, but that doesn’t mean he couldn’t end up in DFW again. in the future.

JAN 11 Tim Hardaway Jr. in the Miami Heat?

Tim Hardaway Jr. rumors continue to mount as the Feb. 9 trade deadline approaches. Today, the latest rumor involving the veteran Dallas Mavericks guard links him to the Miami Heat.

“According to multiple sources, the Miami Heat & Dallas Mavericks have had initial conversations about a deal involving Tim Hardaway Jr.,” Adam Borai of The Basement Sports tweeted.

“This is not the first time that Hardaway Jr. has been linked to Miami. He is definitely a name to watch as the deadline approaches.”

Borai also mentions that Miami has eyes on Mavs players like Reggie Bullock and Dorian Finney-Smith. Given that the Mavs were Kyle Lowry’s competitors in 2021 free agency, we could potentially see them trying to work out a deal to get him now despite his poor season with Miami.

However, this could all just be posturing and a leverage effort in the talks the Mavs have had with other teams that include Hardaway. As with many rumors during the trade season, they should be taken with a grain of salt.

JAN 10 Hawks’ Steep Collins Price; Lakers as wood plaintiff?

According to a report, the Hawks’ asking price for John Collins could be in the “Rudy Gobert or Donovan Mitchell range” from last summer.

We discussed the idea of ​​the Mavs pursuing Collins if they can’t reach a deal on a contract extension with Christian Wood before the trade deadline, but if that’s truly the Hawk’s asking price, it’s safe to say you can count Dallas out there.

Speaking of Wood’s contract extension, if a deal can’t be reached, could the Lakers be a trade option for him? Sports Illustrated’s Howard Beck offers his thoughts here.

JAN 10 Mavs Interested in Knicks’ Quickley?

HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto debunked another Mavs trade rumor on Tuesday, as he linked Dallas to Immanuel Quickley of the New York Knicks.

Another Knicks player whose name has been in the news this season is Immanuel Quickley. Several teams, including the Bucks, Mavericks, Wizards and others, have expressed interest in Quickley, league sources told HoopsHype,” Scotto wrote.

JAN 9 Mavs 3-Team Trade Idea … Could It Work?

Last week, Yahoo! Sports Jake Fischer reported that the Mavs, among other teams, were in pursuit of Pistons veteran Bojan Bogdanovic.

“Right now, the Pistons are looking for at least one first-rounder and one young player with positive or additional equity, the sources said, plus Cleveland has company in Dallas, Phoenix and the Lakers, among other teams in pursuit of Bogdanovic. “, wrote Fischer.

Putting this report together with what we think we know about Tim Hardaway Jr.’s availability. and the Cavs’ interest in him, we constructed a hypothetical 3-team trade that could potentially work out for all teams involved.

Mavs get: Bojan Bogdanovic

Cavs get: Tim Hardaway Jr.

Pistons get: Caris LeVert, Frank Ntilikina, two second-round picks

JAN 8 Mavs’ Hardaway is available; Cavs chasing?

Now we have multiple reports linking Mavs veteran Tim Hardaway Jr. with the Cavs. The first was a report from Chris Fedor of The latest was from Marc Stein, who confirmed Fedor’s report and offered an idea of ​​what a potential Mavs-Cavs trade could look like.

“League sources have reconfirmed to me that Hardaway is indeed available and that it is essentially up to the Cavaliers if they are prepared to take on the two years and $34.1 million remaining on Hardaway’s contract beyond this season,” Stein wrote in his newsletter.

Caris LeVert’s expiring $18.8 million contract is the easiest matchup for Hardaway, who has rebounded from a very slow start to shoot 40.5% from 3-point range in 21 games entering Sunday’s game when Mavericks coach Jason Kidd inserted him into the starting lineup.”

JAN 5 Mavs linked as potential Zach LaVine suitor

We already knew the Mavs had interest in Bulls star Zach LaVine in the offseason when NBA reporter Marc Stein wrote that Dallas was considering making a sign-and-trade offer before signing his new deal with Chicago.

Now, according to a report from HoopsHype, it appears the Mavs could be a player for him at the trade deadline.

If the Chicago Bulls make Zach LaVine available before the trade deadline, rival executives are keeping an eye on several teams that could be interested in trading for him, including the New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat. Michael Scotto wrote.
