NBA trade candidate: Kristaps Porzingis, Dallas Mavericks

Trade confidence meter: 3/10 

Kristaps Porzingis has somewhat surprisingly found his name in the rumor mill over the last few weeks. The combination between him and Luka Doncic simply hasn’t worked in Dallas and the Mavs are reportedly gauging the interest around the league on their All-Star caliber power forward.

Mavs would probably have to be blown away from an offer and I’m not sure they’re just trying to get rid of Kristaps just for the sake of making a trade. That said, it appears that Porzingis is very much available if there’s any team that is willing to pay the price to acquire the All-Star talent.

I’m still not sold on the fact that he’ll be traded. I’d honestly be extremely surprised if he was moved.

Ideal destination: Portland Trail Blazers
