The latest Kyrie Irving saga has come to an end. After a few months of will-they-won’t-they, Irving’s latest trade request from the Brooklyn Nets – given Friday afternoon – was honored by the team on Sunday.
Next up to try to manage the incredibly talented yet eccentric point guard is the Dallas Mavericks. As first reported by Stadium’s Shams Charania, the Mavericks are sending point guard Spencer Dinwiddie, forward Dorian Finney-Smith, a 2029 first-round pick, and 2027 and 2029 second-round picks to Brooklyn in exchange for Irving, who is entering the final year of his contract. Forward Markieff Morris is also heading to Dallas in the deal.
