BREAKING: Kyrie Irving Sent To Western Conference Contender

In a stunning turn of events, the Brooklyn Nets have found a new home for Kyrie Irving just 48 hours after he demanded a trade. The Nets have sent the controversial point guard to the Dallas Mavericks for multiple assets.

The Nets get a reunion with Spencer Dinwiddie, as well as 3-and-D wing Dorian Finney-Smith, a first-round pick and multiple second-round picks.

The Mavs get their co-star for Luka Doncic. And yes, Luka was consulted on it first, according to Insider Marc Stein.

As noted by Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nets preferred the Mavs' package over that of the Los Angeles Lakers'. He also explained that Mavericks GM Nico Harrison has a long history with Irving going back to their Nike days together, as well as the fact that head coach Jason Kidd pushed for this.

Dinwiddie was averaging 17.7 points and 5.3 assists with the Mavs this year, while shooting 40.5% from distance. He spent five seasons in Brooklyn, from 2016 through 2021. 

Finney-Smith is a solid wing defender, while averaging 9.1 points and 4.7 rebounds, and shooting 35.5% from three. 

But all eyes will be on the new Luka-Kyrie pairing in Dallas.
