Deandre Ayton’s season has been disappointing, a circumstance that the Dallas Mavericks want to take advantage of to try to get his transfer this coming summer
Two of the biggest disappointments of the season could join their paths this coming summer: dallas mavericks and Deandre Ayton. On the one hand we have the Texan franchise, which despite uniting Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving has been unable to even qualify for play-in positions. That is why for this summer they have the obligation to build a team around two of the best players in the league to compete for everything.
On the other hand, the case of the Bahamian center stands out. His season has been disappointing, especially in the playoffs, where he has had a negative impact on his team and where he has been unable to defend a player like Nikola Jokic. That is why there is a real possibility that Dallas Mavericks can get the transfer of Deandre Ayton this summer.
The offer that Dallas Mavericks prepares for Ayton
As we know, since Mat Ishbia came to the franchise as the new owner, he has been in charge of making the decisions. Decisions such as those of transferring Kevin Durant or firing Monty Williams, who was one of the key pieces of the team as a coach. Now, next out could be Deandre Ayton.
In general, when the owners make the decisions, things don’t usually work out well on a sporting level. But this is the new reality of the Phoenix Suns. A reality that you want to take advantage of Dallas Mavericks offering an expiring contract like Davis Bertans and Maxi Kleber to get Deandre Ayton traded. An offer that is not as bad as many might think.
Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving need an inner presence
Despite the fact that Davis Bertans is one of the worst contracts in the league, next summer he will be a free agent. For his part, Maxi Kleber is an inside player with the ability to shoot three and with good defense. Qualities that could come to perfection for the Phoenix Suns. Especially considering that Deandre Ayton’s value is in tatters after their disappointing playoffs.
Yes finally Dallas Mavericks manage to close the trade of Deandre Ayton, Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic They would already have the pivot they need. A young, athletic center with defensive capacity. Necessary qualities to lead the franchise to fight for the ring next season as long as they get good complements, especially for the forward positions, which have been greatly weakened.
