Mavericks looking forward to Kyrie Irving trade request to support star point guard Luka Dončic

Kyrie Irving‘s shocking trade request caused a stir among NBA fans eager to get a hold of the Brooklyn Nets superstar as the deadline approached on February 9.

The Los Angeles Lakers’ living legend, Lebron James, seemed eager to see his former teammate by his side. The Lakers tried to lure away the point guard even before the trade request. However, the Lakers became super active to finally add the star player to the roster to support King James.

This golden opportunity attracts not only the Lakers but also several other franchises. Among them, the Dallas Mavericks now pose a bigger threat to the Lakers in the trade competition.

What is the recent rumor regarding Kyrie Irving’s trade request?

According to reports, the Dallas Mavericks have entered the race to sign Kyrie to back up their star player, Luka Doncic. but their need doesn’t appear as dire as the Lakers’. The Lakers are the 13th seed in the Western Conference.

On the other hand, the Mavericks are in a comfortable playoff position, sixth in the conference. Furthermore, their roster is not as prone to injuries as the Lakers’.

However, from one perspective, the Mavericks are somewhat similar to the Lakers. The 23-year-old Dominic is pulling all the weight like LeBron James does for the Lakers.

The Slovenian’s performance is improving gradually, as he has scored an average of 33.4 points with 8.9 rebounds and 8.2 assists per game in his 47 appearances this season. Which reflects a better ratio than his whole NBA career.

However, the Euroleague champion is too young to carry the full weight of the team’s responsibility. In the long run, adding another star and sharing the reliance would be safer for both the athlete and the franchise.
