Dallas Mavericks working on a trade to get Lauri Markkanen from the Chicago Bulls!

welcome into dallas mavericks today by chat sports i am your host chase give me a follow and hit me up on twitter and instagram at chase underscore senior let’s get into the latest dallas mavericks news and rumors and of course we’ve talked a lot about laurie markin in here on the channel but there’s some new fresh reporting to get to from tim cato of the athletic according to reports from cato last week from mark stein mav’s really interested in laurie markkanen who’s a restricted free agent and dallas has a trade exception worth about 11 million dollars so possibly they’d be able to bring in marketing salary and pay him over the next couple of seasons but what chicago is doing right now is really weird because they’re holding out hopes for a sign in trade yet marketing is a restricted free agent and they haven’t matched any of the offers that have gone out there for marketing so there’s a little bit of a stand still going on between marketing’s camp and they requested a trade out of chicago as well as the chicago bulls organization who were really really busy throughout free agency and don’t have room for marketing on this roster i think marketing has a lot of modern day value because he’s a big guy who can shoot and also he’s still really young in his mid-20s the problem with him has been injuries the last three years he has missed at least 20 games in each of those campaigns but when he’s been on the floor he’s shown flashes of becoming and being a very productive player at the four or five spot depending on which lineup you’re going up against 13 and a half points per game last year in under 30 games he was able to contribute little more than five rebounds so not the greatest rebounder for his size we’re talking more about a stretch big who likes to hover around the three-point arc and speaking of the three-point arc marking in for a big man closing in on seven feet 40 percent from distance last year and shot 48 percent from the field i spoke about that report from cato on the athletic about the kind of joining forces between markham and wanting to go to dallas and dallas may be wanting marketing here’s what cato had to say on the athletic dallas would love to convince markanin to sign under his market value and what is market value if the market hasn’t provided him the 15 million dollars annually that he had hoped for and fit him into the team’s 11 million dollar traded player exception which we spoke about here cato saying i’ve heard chicago has interest in maxie klieber it’s a riskier deal for dallas giving up both a rotational player and signing marketing to a higher salary point it might be worthwhile it might be a worthwhile gamble though although you would have to really talk me into it clibber has been the better player in past seasons or at least the more useful one for a team with postseason aspirations i actually disagree with cato and saying that klieber has been the better player he’s certainly fit well on this mavericks roster and him like markenin a big guy who can stretch the floor open up some floor spacing for drivers like luca doncic to get to the cup and also be a reliable marksman from deep but his numbers not even close really from a production standpoint to laurie markin and seven points per game last year five rebounds so the points per game and the rebounds per game very productive numbers there he shot around 42 percent from the field and 41 from distance so both with clibber and markin you’re looking at two guys who can stretch the floor and as big guys knock down threes and be reliable in doing so but there’s no doubt i think that klieber is the better defensive player than mark in it and also there’s this i’m not sure how well markanin would fit on the mavericks alongside kristaps porzingis because both of those guys have a lot of similarities and both of those guys have the tendency to be somewhat inconsistent night in and night out
