Kyrie Irving traded to Dallas Mavericks, sources say

Jay Wallis (WFAA)

DALLAS — The Dallas Mavericks will have a new backcourt star next to Luka Doncic for the rest of the 2022-2023 NBA season.

The Mavs have traded for Brooklyn Nets All-Star guard Kyrie Irving, according to multiple sources. The Athletic’s Shams Charania was the first to report the deal.

Dallas is reportedly sending the Nets Dorian Finney-Smith, Spencer Dinwiddie, a 2027 first-round pick and a 2029 first-round pick, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

In 40 games with Brooklyn this season, Irving has averaged 27.1 points per game, 5.1 rebounds per game and 5.3 assists per game on 48.6 percent shooting from the field.

Earlier in the week, multiple sources reported the Mavs were one of several teams interested in acquiring the 30-year-old guard.

Irving had an ongoing standoff with the Nets that was centered on his hope for a long-term contract extension from the franchise. The possibility that he would change teams in the summer limited what Brooklyn was able to reasonably get back in a trade.
