The Mavericks need to get over the hump to get to the second round. With these moves,they should win a lot of games next season.

Trade Josh Richardson, 2 SRP for Thaddeus Young

Bulls Trade Breakdown

The Bulls need a defensive guard to make up for the liabilities of Zach LaVine and Coby White. Giving up Young is tough, but Williams needs some more minutes to grow and they can retain Markennen. Richardson is a nice 3&D player who will be a solid player.

Mavericks Trade Breakdown

The Mavericks need another forward/center who competes on the defensive end and also provides passing. Young is a nice player who is having a nice season right now. He can either play as a small ball center or a forward.

Sign Lonzo Ball, Robin Lopez in free agency

Retain Tim Hard away Jr.

New lineup: Doncic - Ball - Finney Smith - Porzingis - Young Backups: Brunson - Hardaway Jr., more
