NBA trade proposals are common during the offseason. Many trade proposal becomes a reality when NBA teams acquire players in the trade proposal. One such trade proposal that is grabbing the attention of fans is between the Detroit Pistons and Dallas Mavericks.
The trade proposal involves Tim Hardaway Jr. and Josh Green from the Dallas Mavericks alongside 2 second-round picks.
The Tim Hardaway Jr. and Josh Green Trade Proposal
- The Dallas Mavericks will receive Bojan Bogdanovic.
- The Detroit Pistons will receive Tim Hardaway Jr., Josh Green, the 2025 Second-Round Draft Pick (Toronto Raptors), and the Second-Round Draft Pick (Miami Heat).
Lee Tran from the popular news outlet Fadeaway World has proposed this trade deal between the Pistons and the Mavericks.
“Tim Hardaway Jr. is a player that could fill the veteran leadership void on the Detroit Pistons that would be there after the team hypothetically moved Bogdanovic.”
“Hardaway Jr. has been on multiple NBA playoff teams in the past, the Atlanta Hawks and the Dallas Mavericks. It is clear that Hardaway Jr. knows what winning basketball looks like. He could teach players such as Cade Cunningham, Jalen Duren, and Jaden Ivey how to win. On the court, Tim Hardaway Jr. profiles as a solid sixth-man type of player, and he could still play big minutes off the bench for the Detroit Pistons to maintain his value for future trades.”
Tran further added:
“Josh Green would be the key young player that the Detroit Pistons would land in this trade package. The shooting guard had a solid NBA year in a 3-and-D role, averaging 9.1 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.7 assists over the course of last season. He also shot a solid 40.2% from beyond the arc, and it seems as though Green could be a great complementary player on the Detroit Pistons for a long time.”
