Finals runner-up Dallas sent ‘troublesome’ dice shooter to… Staying Power Total

Dallas has made a decision.

According to ESPN, the Dallas Mavericks and Detroit Pistons made a trade on Monday (Feb. 28).

Dallas will send Tim Hardaway Jr. and three second-round picks to Detroit in exchange for Quinton Grimes.

Dallas is coming off a strong 2023-2024 season that saw them reach the Finals. It was their best finish since the start of the Luka Doncic era.

To keep the momentum going, they’ll need to maintain their strengths and shore up their weaknesses. While the likes of Luka Doncic, Kyrie Irving, Daniel Garford, and P.J. Washington are still under contract, 파워볼사이트 Derrick Jones Jr. is coming off the minimum contract.

The decision was made to stay strong. The decision was made to move troubled swingman Tim Hardaway Jr. Rumors of a trade for Hardaway have been circulating for some time now.

His disastrous performance since midseason was likely the deciding factor in the trade. After a strong start to the season that earned him first-team Sixth Man honors, Hardaway’s pace slowed dramatically in February.

He didn’t help the team much in the playoffs either. He averaged just 3.8 points in 11.9 minutes in the Finals and suffered the indignity of being held scoreless in all but Game 4, when he dominated garbage time.

Dallas sent Hathaway to Detroit along with three second-round picks, freeing up $12.9 million in mid-level expiring contracts to re-sign Jones Jr.

Grimes, the 25th overall pick in the 2021 draft, showed flashes of promise in his second season as the starting guard in New York, averaging 11.3 points and shooting 38.6% from three-point range, but he had a disappointing time last season.

In the six games he played after being traded to Detroit, he averaged just 5.3 points on 21.4% shooting. In Dallas, he’ll have to compete for the backup guard spot behind Doncic and Irving.

With three second-round picks, Detroit took a chance on the future by acquiring expiring free agent Hardaway. With the value of expiring filler assets becoming quite high to create salary cap space, there is room for Hardaway to be used as a trade chip in the future.
