Default Hypothetical situation

Lets suppose the Mavs win the lottery. A weird and wonderful thought.

Would you trade Zion Williamson for Anthony Davis?

If Zion and a 2030 first rounder can net us Davis, I'd do it.

Davis transformed under the shitty influence of Lebron and Klutch into an self-entitled douchebag, thinking he is a a boss and CEO...when he is an employee with a contract he has to honor until 2021.

So no....glass man can stay somewhere else

I wouldn't but I've never cared for Anthony Davis. Similar category as Kevin Durant for me: undoubtedly a great player, I'd just rather root against him.

I wouldn't personally. The injuries, the RP factor, and the fact that his insane talent has translated to so few wins all bother me.

I do think we have to wonder if Davis is an empty stat superstar. NO isn't that bad off talent-wise, so I have no idea why they aren't at least .500.

I say no. Keep Zion. Or better yet draft Barrett who is a much better fit.

I'd rather trade back for Barrett and get another pick or young asset if possible.

So we're choosing between having Luka and Zion on rookie contracts for the next 3 years (combining for Wes Matthews money) or the Anthony Davis drama for a year?

It should be a tough decision, but its not.

If AD didn't have the injury issue, then I'd pull the trigger and deal with the personality hoping that a change of environment and a new, winning culture would satisfy him, which I think it might if he really is as concerned about his legacy as I've read about.

As it is now? I'd sign Vuc and add Zion. That's not a difficult decision if both can be accomplished. (Vuc + Zion) > AD

No Team is going to give up Zion for a potential one year rental of Davis.

Such a trade just happens when Davis would sign the extension the second the trade call is made

Yeaaa no. AD is great, but blew up his rep for me with the latest drama coupled with his inability to stay healthy.

Zion and Barrett also provide that youth/timeline to pair with Luka and KP on a much cheaper contract situation and potential to be as great or better.

Draft Barrett and then go after Davis the following year in FA because our situation will most likely be better than many others.

If you can trade a draft pick for an absolute superstar in his prime, you do that every single time. It would be criminal malpractice not to.

i'm guilty of going on tankathon more these days... always fun to dream.
if we end up with a top 4, curious how everyone thinks they would fit.

Zion - would he be able to play alongside KP as a modern day 5? great rebounder, big body, amazing athlete.

Barrett - seems like an alpha type for better or worse but could handle the ball, big/long with defensive potential, and hope for more consistent shooting.

Reddish - don't know much about his potential as a whole

Morant - is he more than what DSJ would have been? could he play well with Luka?

I think i keep any of the Dukies but if we end up with Morant i'd trade down for someone else or for another proven star.

I'd trade any of them for Anthony Davis but keeping Zion would be quite tempting.

Again:
Not for a one year rental and with a player who has allready an incredible strong connection to the Lakers.

You either do the trade because he signs the extension in the same second or you keep your prized Nr. 1 pick on a five year rookie contract. And right now i would not even trade #4 for Anthony Davis if he is not willing to sign the extension. If you dont want to sign an extension right away with Luka&KP on the team, then bye bye.

That's reasonable. I wasn't really considering the contract extension aspect. I was just thinking of AD vs Zion in a vacuum.

Luka, Zion and KP and the oldest guy is 24 and you’ll only be paying max money for one. If you give that situation up, the people should rise up.

I'd trade Zion for Davis even without the promise of an extension. Because Davis would be crazy to not want to play on that team. And Davis would be the perfect complement to play next to Porzingis

That would be three true superstars that would put the Mavs in the championship conversation for a decade

Why not make it 4 superstars?
Wouldn't Zion or Barrett playing with Luka/KP make it even more attractive for AD in 2020?
Why not just draft Zion or Barrett and then sign AD the following off-season?
Not sure there would be a better situation than that in the league if AD's primary motivational goal is to be on a long-term championship contender...virtually the remainder of his career.

Actually I forgot our cap room for this year

Lets say we get the pick and we call Kawhi. He's not going to want to wait on Zion to grow up, he'll sign if we trade for Davis. Boom!

Add Beverly for the MLE and your starters are Luka, KP, Davis, Kawhi, & Beverly. There is no way on earth that Davis would leave that team to play with a 35 year old broken down Lebron.

We wouldn't be able to sign Kawhi if we traded for Davis, since the draft is before free agency and we won't have any cap space left if we add Davis to the roster.

We could, however, add another FA to Luka/KP/Zion (especially if we unloaded Powell).

We would have to draft Zion and trade him for Davis after Kawhi signs. The draft is June 20th. Free agency is July 1st. We'd be in a weird holding pattern for 10 days but it could be done

I suppose it could be done, but I've never seen it happen before... Usually draft trades happen during the draft, plus there'd have to be a tremendous amount of trust between our FO and Kawhi's people that the trade for Davis would actually get done. It's a long shot, but it's technically possible.

It wouldn't be trust. It would be suicide for any organization to not follow up with a promise like that. You'd have to overpay for tier 3 free agents if you did that plus Kawhi would probably demand his contract be voided.

Well it's not just up to the Mavs -- the Pelicans could always back out of a verbal agreement if they got a better offer from another team. Lots of risk for all parties involved to do it the way you proposed.

Sure and that could happen. And we would be stuck with Kawhi and Zion. Ouch! That really sucks

It wouldn't be our fault if NO backed out of the trade at the last moment. I'm pretty sure that Kawhi's agent would want to see emails, etc and wouldn't just trust our word before they signed in the first place.

But Zion and Brunson would be a very nice package to NO and I'm sure Cuban would figure out a way to buy a first this season and throw that in too.
