MDP Live - Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban explains his reasons for swapping Kristaps Porzingis for the Washington Wizards. He felt Porzingis would be more suitable to play with the team from the United States capital.
As is known, the Dallas Mavericks just made a player exchange at the last trade deadline. They agreed to swap Kristaps Porzingis for Davis Bertans and Spencer Dinwiddie. This decision is quite surprising considering Porzingis' performance with the Mavericks is also not too bad.
Investigate a calibaration, this decision was made to make the composition of the Mavericks squad more complete. Like it or not, Cuban had to sacrifice Porzingis as one of his assets.
"I think KP is a player with tremendous talent. But we need a sniper (Bertans) and we need another playmaker (Dinwiddie) who can make a shot on his own. Unfortunately, that (letting off Porzingis) is the only way we're going to get him. ," said Mark Cuban.
"It's that simple in principle, we've got two people who fill the roles we really need, and the fact that we've played pretty well without KP. But I think that doesn't take away from the fact that KP is a great talent, and I really think he is. would be better with the Wizards than with us."
With the arrivals of Bertans and Dinwiddie, Cuban hopes the Dallas Mavericks can secure a place in the west conference playoffs without having to struggle through the play-in tournament.
